Its about a year and a half since i bought it. No telling how old the actual unit manufacturing is, but it wasnt cheap when i bought it. Want to trade Power supplies?
EVGA is getting raked across the coals for this shit. Almost every review for the card i have read has mentioned the power problem. Unfortunately, the reviews i read before i got the card ordered were for PNY or BFG cards, which have the fucking connector in the box. I didnt know EVGA would be so ballsy as to not include it. Part of my "fuck EVGA" comes from the first tech i spoke to who first told me such connectors didnt exist and i would have to buy a new power supply. Well, after i called back and told them they exist, he was like Nvidia didnt allow for that in the design and it wont work. Increasingly angry, i pointed out BFGtech came with the connector in the fucking box. That point he switched his tune to "its not certified". The second tech support guy, charles, was cool, he knew this was a big issue and was aware of it. The last guy , john, who had a huge stutter that made me want to strangle him, was trying to tell me my card would catch fire the moment i tried to turn on my PC with another companies adapter in place. LOL! What a bunch of limp dicks.
