Re: ATi Open drivers are comming of age... :)
I don't blame you for being upset with your HW going bad. I would be too.

I think you were a victim of rotten luck for sure. But would question if this is a common trait of the 7950 Gx2 product line or perhaps the outcome of improper cooling or power supply, rather than chucking it up as Nvidia's product somehow being flawed.
I have an Nvidia 4200 (from 2002), a 7600, 9500 & 9600 that are working just fine.
I did have an Nvidia Quadro m135 take a crap on a laptop, but I know for a fact that met its death due to over heating, and I consider that my fault because I noticed too late that the fan for the card was clogged with dust. I've managed to kill a few procs that way as well...
Just a heads up... if you are taking care of all that then, yeah it sucks to have rotten luck... but if you have some concrete proof that Nvidia designs nothing but flawed products... lets have the test data. I genuinely want to see it.
