Well for those souls out there just dying to know, XFX did come through. They deemed the card committed suicide all on it's own, which it really did, and sent me a replacement. They were out of the 8600 GT and upped me to a 9500 GT. I can't tell any difference in performance myself. Those two cards are quite a bit alike in almost every respect.
