well as some of you might remember, iv been haveing a little bad luck "of the life long kind lol" but i might have cought a break. my last two BFG6800s cr@ped out on me. the rear fan went out on both. this time i was not able to take it back to BESTBUY because thay suckbutt "dont buy from best buyhttp://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif" so i had to send it back to BFG. well 2 weeks later i have now have my replacment card. when i opend the box and took the card outa the static proof bag i noticed a slight change in the card . it seems instead of by 6800 thay have sent me a nice shiney glowing 6800.....GT. let me tell you guys, youv never seen a whight boy dance a better jigg lol. im not sure if it was a mistake or if it was a nice way of saying "sorry ford for the problems,not just with the card but ...well look at you". im tempted to call them and give my thanks but im to affraid thay will say "O that was a slip up you need to send that back in,sucks 2 be you ford". just thought id share my day with you guys. and please wish me luck that this one works for a good while http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I wish you luck that it works for a good while.
I had something similar to happen to me last year: I was in Sweden at the time, just checking out a local game store and decided to buy Half Life, just see what all fuzz was about. Well when I got back home and opened the case I saw a reference card, no biggy but when I took a closer look I noticed it was a Half Life 2 reference card. I then took a closer look at the CD which appeared to be a DVD and said HALF LIFE 2. My jaw dropped, I got Half Life dirty cheap but instead I got a brand new copy of Half Life 2. At the time I didn't have a DVD drive so it just sat in the shelf gathering dust (in which it was actually good at http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif)
A few weeks ago I grabbed the best DVD drive I could find at a computer store to prepare for SHIII. Just finished it some time ago (HL2). Well nothing special I just have Half Life 2 in Half Life 1 covers http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Good luck with your new card!

hmmmmmm sounds like someone leaked a Half-life 2 cd by putting it in a half-life 1 cd case! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-surprised.gif http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/88.gif

Thats only cuz they felt sorry fer you and yer apparent lack of parts interchangeability that comes with fords.
So they sent you a part fer your same year ,same month and two numbers of differintiating production numbers.
FOOL! thats what a ford gets ya!
Wouldn't it be t!ts to pick a part from any muskrat within major model years and actually be able to use it if it was all you had?
I have a 70 'Velle and I find comfort in the fact that I can pick a part from a buick,pontiac,olds,or if need be a chevy truck.
Ignorance is where you find it.
But @l;east yer not a need MoParts fan!
Those are SOME UGLY RODS!!

my my my. tell me mjillnir, is ignorance realy bless? All jokeing aside there are good things about all make and modles.How ever after blowing the doors off a 94 chevy truck with the 350 as well as a 2000 dodge darango with the 318 "magnum" amoung others in my old wore out 92 f150 with its little 302 v8 you can take your vortec's and your magnums as well as those flimsy a$$ rice burning toyotas and drivem all you want. "all though i am a camaro fan". the new hemi is ok but when you figure its a 5.9 liter and is putting out 345hp vs fords 5.4 @ 315hp wich is of a nearly 10 year old design it does not seem so uber. now you might not mind being able to piece one pile of junk togther from many other piles of junk but for me its qulity over well you know. ill take a 302 over a 305 any day as well as a 351wHO over a 350 http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif. the 318 is a great old gal though i gotta giver props. shes very 5.0ish lol. and if you want 2 get into big blocks give me that lovely old 429CJ in a nice little 69 mustang that i remember from so long ago. though the 67 corvette with the 427 i think it was was also nice. ..God my mom always has had good tast in cars. lol

yea i could not beleve my eyes. i did one of those double takes. if thats BFGs way of makeing down time up to there customers then thay got a customer for life lol. realy though, the only thing i can think of is seeing as i read thay are fadeing out the 6800's in favore of the 6600gts thay may not have had any 6800's on hand. i think ill givem a call or send them an e-mail thanking them. i just put my 9500pro back in how ever because im not to sure about this PSU. its given me funcky read outs on asus prob. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/cry.gif.
