Default eVGA 6800Gt

rant I opened the eVGA 6800GT I just got from NewEgg. One of the
capacitors has only one lead soldered on! You can't begin to imagine how
****ed off I am. That particular capacitor has a red ink mark(Sharpie?)
on it like someone flagged it as bad. How can something like that make it
through Q.C.?

I wonder what NewEgg is going to do to make it right. I called eVGA and
they said "sorry, it's been less than 30 days so you have to go back to
NewEgg." What a load of crap. NewEgg has a chance to make me a lifetime
customer, eVGA blew it tonight with their lack of service. /rant

Are you for real? E-vga has the best customer service out there. Why were
you contacting e-vga to start with when your warranty clearly states that
for the first 30 days if you have a problem you must contact the original
seller?

Have to agree... EVGA has probably the best customer service of any video
card company going... Because of the obvious defect, New Egg needs to
replace it with a new card - then they return to EVGA for
replacement/reimbursement. That's how most retailers handle defective
merchandise during the first few weeks of purchase.

The box on my GT has a blue label on the inside instructing me to call
EVGA instead of taking it back to the store if there are any problems.
I got my card at Circuit City. They're charging a fortuen for the card
but they have $130 in rebates. You might try them.

Oh Conor, I'm glad you responded! I still owe you a blowjob in return for
the one you gave me. I don't think I will though. Not after seeing your
pencil dick in your little sister.

Newegg is reputed to have a very good return/exchange policy. It's probably
easier to deal with Newegg than with eVGA.
