I've only just ordered a HD2600 XT for delivery tomorrow! I hope mines not faulty, is there anyway of telling? Will it just not work at all?

It probably won't work at all, but I can't confirm that for definite.

I think what Tim means is that IF it's a "faulty" card then he thinks the fault will manifest itself as the card just not working at all - it's not like it will be "only a little flakey".

Whomever you ordered it from should probably be already aware of the issue and sort you out with a replacement (if not, let us know and we'll send The Boys around)

well I installed it, it all seemed alright (i.e. it booted into windows). First thing I did was to try to install the drivers from the CD and it blue screened halfway through... now all it does is post and can't get to the windows loading screen!! Time to post in tech support!!

On a side note, I ordered it through Scan, free postage cheesecake!
