Well, at least there is a warranty on it. I would love to see what the Voodo reps have to say about that.

Rep: uhhh... it was.... not... our fault?

Well, theres a good chance it wasn't. PC components can go wrong, and its possible the power supply just wasn't up to the job anymore.
Voodoo create very powerful PC's. Shame they are just overly expensive.

Yeah I woulda been pissed though. But that pic of that black PCI slot just simply makes my day.

If it was bigger I would set it as my wallpaper

Hardware manufacturers always have factory defects. Some of the most reliable and most trustworthy manufacturers occasionally have hardware that dies or randomly goes out.

This doesn't change any of the respect I have for Voodoo and the passion they have for extremely gorgeous and expensive PCs.
