well, it looks like I might be gone a while longer. Corsair, who was not up front, took my express deposit... for faster delivery, and in fact the TX-650 PSU is on back order.. which I only found out after doing a chat with Corsair and my RMA. Crooked companies! They could just send me another model with same or higher voltage, I noticed Newegg now sells the TX-750 PSU for $85.00 which is less then I paid... ! and less then the 100$ deposit I piad for express service (they refund after they receive your old unit, which they got today.).

Update, after being trashed by someone on Corsair forums, lying about who said what.. I used phone instead of that crappy online chat with Corsair,, they found an equivalent psu and they are sending one to me. I told tech support that online chat support refused to find an equiv model for me, and they found one for me,, almost al models they offer are on backorder. They found one that works,  they are sending it to me... I told them that no end user should have to go through all this to get a product.

So, I send the RMA request and some moron tech is asking me dumb questions and wasting time it could be shipped, it is Friday night now!
 :o

I see PNY computer stuff maybe in New Jersey?? I am used to sending stuff to Northern California, so this could be another long wait!

the video card error is "VIDEO_TOA_FAILURE" I hope PNY gives me the RMA Monday and stops screwing with me, I paid extra for lifetime warranty! PNY and EGVA  both are more expensive for the lifetime warranties!

If I had the money, I would have just bought new stuff.. but under warranty items,, They piddled away a lot of time, they can test it there too.. I can only test so much... having a computer doing reboots, lines on the screen.. and not being able to boot into windows.... one component, wacks another component... I tested the video card with another GeForce from my wife's computer, and it booted fine with the new power supply, but with my video card, it could not get out of dos into windows.. so, hours and days go by trying to get through it all.. I saved my D. E, and F drives... but I wiped C drive to start over... reformatted it, but cannot proceed until I get a new video card..., so a whole month goes by...

anyways,,, I am sick, slept most of yesterday after putting some fertilizer on the garden area, the neighbor has a tractor and can till that.. I can't work it.... too tough on my body... Spring is here! We never got much of a Winter, last year we were under snow..

Good News ! PNY sent my Video Card out to me, but the morons sent it slow... so it will take until next Monday via UPS for it to be delivered... when I sent mine it only took 2 days to get to their Support 3,000 miles away! the bastages sent it the slowest way possible, and never even tried to ask if I wanted it faster!
 :o  :(  >:(
So, next week, when I get it I will try to get my computer up and running asap !  ;)

I am very curious to see which video card they sent back to replace my old XLR8 GTX460 (1GB DDR5 memory), it weighed about 1.4 lbs? the new card weight say they shipped weighs 2.4 lbs, which is the weight of their XLR8 GTX 960 (2GB DDR5 memory). That would be very nice!
