Why is that?

In my experience of the OC forums, theres a general helpfulness, respect and etiquette present between posters and i would like to believe that if someone in the surrounding area has an 8800GT system, they might help.

I'm just trying to find out if the problem is graphics card based, or some new conflict with my hardware that has materialised over recent weeks.

If you've got nothing but sarcasm to input, stop posting here and audition for an american sitcom :D

Hahahahahahaha :D :D (applauds). Take a head shot equivalent in words (OWNED :p).

I'm up in bonny Scotland and no help to you at all but I'd have helped you out if I lived closer.

I hope someone will speak up and help you out. Christmas spirit and all that ;).

Gunshot Gaz by any chance :confused:?. Also what is the relevance of your post then? :p. :D I think you've just shot yourself in the foot with that post m8. It's hilarious when someone posts off topic to pull someone up about talking off topic.

Why not pick up a GTS if you can afford it mdk88. Then when you get the replacement you can just sell it. I reckon you'd still get your money back at least and even after Christmas as demand will still be a problem most likely.

I know it's a bit of a PITA but at least you will be able to play your games how you should be doing now and most importantly when it's cold outside and it's nearing the holidays. The perfect time for gaming :D.

Umm, thats a bit far but thanks a lot for the offer of assistance, just goes to show that i was right in my comments about OC being a helpful community.


My mind's been put at ease after seeing another guy RMA'ing with the same overnight death of card issue.

I live in Hull too, What a dump Hull is i wish never lived here:D

lol. Well it aint London I must admit, which is where I'm from originally, but I went to uni in Hull and loved it tbh. Houses are dirt cheap as well, so now I'm on the property ladder which I never could have done down south, so overall Hull serves me well.

I know what you mean though :)
