8166 - If I didn't say it before, I'm sayin' it now. do not use compusa.

Now they want to substitute the Nvidea 5950 Ultra with a Sapphire ATI radeon 9250 256 meg ddr, a similar, but inferior card. (a more comparable one is ATi Radeon 9800XT.)

I did research, and the replacement isn't acceptable. I get to call and tell them this morning, and try to get a card that is at least equal to the strength of what the former one was.

They're trying to trade my $500 card for a $60 inferior replacement. I'm not fuming but my disgust levels are high. They're either trying to scam me, or are hugely incompetent. This one is more likely to be appropriate a replacement for my original.

I'm going to verbally blast someone if I get even an iota of resistance on this. I'm mighty sick of this whole scenario.

I really feel sorry for some poor slob that doesn't know anything about computers... this feels like how I feel sharky car mechanics are, preying on folks that don't know any better.

I'm going to try to get an upgrade on Nvidia, just because my old software is already configured for it. Maybe the silver lining of this long wait will be a better machine?

We'll see how it goes. I'm ready to debate this into the ground if I have to.
