Piece of shite GFX card (Gainward GTX570)
« on: February 27, 2012, 07:20:38 pm »
Woohoo seems i may have solved the issue with my gfx card finally ;)

I took it apart and snapped bits off it until it stopped working ;)

Looked on scan.co.uk and they no longer sell my card and as it doesnt work cannot replace it. As there policy is to replace like for like on faulty goods and the fact they no longer stock my card it means that i get a full refund at the price i paid.

Will update this post tomorrow to see if they sort me out or again try to shaft me.

Ha! I woulda resorted to that method months ago pal. Scan are usually ok with such things from my experience with them, they are all I use now and I know you do too. FIngers crossed, then you can get a proper card from ATI :P
