-I bought my 5670 on Gainsaver and it did not work for me at all. I can't verify whether it was a faulty GPU or that it just wasn't compatible. There was no boot chime or anything, I even tried a new power supply. I ended up ordering another radeon 4670 and it ended up working fine... for a few days. then it kind of crapped out on me. I can still boot and I think it actually loads up fine, because when I hit the volume, I could hear the clicks! I'm hoping I just !@#$%^ up the display connector from disconnecting and reconnecting so many times. I ordered the part, but the only place I could find it was some guy in china, so I've been waiting on it for a week or two now. If it doesn't work, I've about had it with this thing, and will probably end up just backing up the harddrive and parting it out.
