    the day has finally come. I remember back in the day these cards exhibited artifact issues and people were baking them in their ovens to fix them. Or maybe I’m just dreaming things. Anyway, I’m getting artifacts and it doesn’t boot into normal windows although it did boot into safe mode no problem. I also saw the artifacts in the motherboard boot screen. Before I recycle I want to see if someone here can use it. Just pay shipping! If you are an ATLien I can meet you at Georgia Tech. PM if you have questions. Thanks!

    surprise erek hasn't grabbed this. There is a freebies post you should post this in, they gobble up hardware almost instantly it seems.

    Maybe a couple rounds out at the range will fix it up...

    A cheap heat gun is much better than baking...
