I finally RMA’d my 7900 awhile ago, and I received an 8800GTS 320 MB from evga in return for my 7900GT. This was a rather nice upgrade, after holding on to the disfunctional card for over a year, before RMAing it.
I came across this gem while scouring the internet one day. It is a “roguelike” game, supporting multiple players on hotseat (on computer) and many randomly generated dungeons. This is a fun game to play for a few minutes or to try to conquer by state saving.
About a week ago I bought a 7600gs for my brother’s computer. It was an easy install and so far has been a very good “bang for the buck” device.

The accuracy of the mouse is extremely good thanks to the advanced laser technology.
