So, I went ahead and ordered the 9800 pro. Specifically, the FIC brand 9800 pro 128MB. It doesn't come with any outdated games/software, so the price is lower than some, and it should be pretty overclockable, I'm told. Ordered from GameVE.com, who I've actually done business with before.
I also registered my opinion of Amamax on resellerratings.com. Since Amamax actually seems to read that site, maybe they will finally notice my problem and get me a replacement card.
I also need to RMA my SoniCare electric toothbrush, and IBM 40GB disk drive.
Pine surprised me this morning when it told me what month it was. Where does July go every year?
