    Hay all.

    I got a BFG 7800 GS OC AGP card.

    It seems to have stopped working now after many good years :(

    When i send this back to BFG do you think they have a few 7800s in stock to replace it.

    I am a bit stuck on the proof of purchase bit of the RMA
    Iread on the net that its not a invoice from the shop but
    a digital photo of the serial number sticker on the back of the card is that true if so make it easy for me lol

    You may be in luck (kind of) atleast until recently BFG was shipping out 7800GS AGP replacements for all AGP RMAs as far back as the 5 series - except low end and older cards which were replaced with the 6200. But don't quote me on that as thats ~6 months old info.

    EDIT: You prolly won't get an OC model tho.
