Can anyone supply me with the 8800 part number? I only ask because they actually came and installed my GPU about a week ago and they are showing up as 8700s. I really have no idea if that is how I configed it when I bought it. Online description doesn't specify.
That being said if they did send me down graded video cards when I said no I'll be mad. Granted right now it doesn't matter because they forgot to send the motherboard last week, so the tech put in the video card for me. Worked for about 3 days or so. Then I got 5 different solid colored screens twice before it was ok. I went ahead and put in a call to get the MB sent out, which was done, but that same solid colored screen thing happened before the MB got here and it wouldn't stop so it was broken. Tech replaced the MB today and sadly no go it does the same thing. They put in for a box to come so I can send it out to the Depo.
Went ahead and put in another call to Dell because I'll be without my machine for at least another 2 weeks with all that crap. I'm not at home so I have to call back when I am or wait for this tech that was helping me give me a call Monday. Some supervisor actually wanted to talk to me too for whatever reason. Tech kept saying he'd do the "needful." Which I found out was making arrangement to send me a replacement unit, which I wouldn't hold my breath on that happening easily or quickly.
Anyway.........here we go
