Freaking Albatron!!
« on: July 26, 2003, 12:55:35 PM »

Ok, so a while back I bought an Albatron Geforce 4 Ti4280 128meg video card.  It was pretty slick in the beginning.  Then it developed these artifacts all over and severe texture corruption (little dots all over textures - skins in counter strike for example).  So I call albatron and RMA the sucker, because it has a 3 year warranty.  So after about a month, I get it back.  It work again for about a week and a half, then BAM, those freaking artifacts and texture corruption are back.  So now I'm sitting here with what WAS a good video card, waiting to hear back from Albatron a second time about the same problem I had before.  The card wasn't/isn't overclocked or anything.  I think they looked at it, didn't see anything, and gave me back the same card.  

I am really not pleased.  The kicker is that it costs me like 12 bucks to mail it to them, if I mail it again, I could have bought a card that cost 25 bucks more and saved myself the heartache.  

I'm about at that point when I want to take a baseball bat to my machine out of frustration, because I searched and searched for a some problem on my machine to no avail.  I think it's bad memory on the card.

Had to vent a little, sorry bout the rant

I once heard (at least here in Malta) that a shipped batch of GeForce 4 cards were defective.  My friend actually got one of these "defective" cards, got same problems as you did.  He changed the card about 6 times, cause the last one he got was from a different batch and worked correctly
