    I don't think I want to keep this thing. They say that it is at least equal performance to the 7900GT I RMAd but I want an upgrade. I am supposed to be getting the 8600GTS XXX version from XFX in a week and the XT version on newegg is going for about $220. Where could I sell this thing to where I can get close to the retail price from it? I am thinking about just selling this one and going for a 8800GTS 640mb and paying the difference. Good idea?

    Why the 640MB version?

    Hmm now that I look at my mobo I realise that the internal USB pins for the front case panel are right underneath the PCI-e slot making it impossable to have a large 8800 series card while using the front USB ports. :( Well this sucks....
