    Be sure to post back about the mastercard return thing. I work at a pizza joint sometimes, and we had to stop taking credit cards for the very same reason. I know how you feel about this ripoff. I got ripped off for almost every component in a built machine years ago.(never again). The cpu was suposed to be a pIII 700, the gfx r8500, hd western digital 40gig 7200rpm, and sb live. What I got was celeron 700, r7000, used maxtor 40gig 5200rpm that started makin loud knocking noises, and onboard sound. The only component he replaced was the maxtor, with a new sealed one. I wished I used visa to pay for it.:tears:

    : peace2: ok talked the place that i bought it . i was calling to talk to a super but this very sexy voiced girl told me that she would take care of evry thing and she knew all about the video card were do these kind of girls come from? she knew a hell of alot about the video card ram and every thing i think she might have been a tech ,but any way she talk me in to sinding it back in and to put att. to her on the box so she could see it for her self. maybe they will get it right this time and i will have the card i want . not a crappy pumped up non pro , she even thought that it might have got over clocked too .

    The clock speed will vary depending on which ram it has. If it is a pro it should have Samsung 2.86ns chips at 350mhz.

    1000/2.86=350

    were do these kind of girls come from?
    Well good for her, it's about time. Usually computer stores have a bunch of dumb airhead guys. The ones at the local stores remind me of Michael from the 70's show.
    I hope it goes well.

    ok after a 5 weeks of b-t-hing i finaly got my card. i first bought a bba redeon 9800 pro oem. i got a retail power color 9800 pro 2.86 samsung chips just what i wanted in the first place. i guess when i told them that ati wanted me to send it to them to see if what i was telling them was true they decided to make me happy





    stock settings
    mark 03 5658
    mark 01 16682
    aquamark 43000

    and also what would be the best cooling for this card would like something like the 9800xt cooler dont like the size of the zalman but if thats what i need than thats what i need i have seen 550proc speeds on this card is that possible or how high should i be able to get it with good cooling

    550 is not possible without a Vapochill and volt mods on the card.

    You will be lucky to get 480 on good air (and by that I mean a CPU heatsink), some get 500 but most can't without volt mods.

    The average on the stock heatsink is around 420mhz.

    I have a 1U server copper CPU heatsink here ready to go on my next card, its much better than anything else you will find for video cards but it requires some custom mounting because it wasnt made for this application.

    Its small, lightweight (a major necessity because you don't want your card bending) and cools very well. People running 450mhz on the core get about 30-40c temps.
