May I say, for the record, that I am THE most unlucky person. Ever. I mean, first, the CPU burns out on me, and NOW THE 6800 ULTRA OC BURNS OUT ON ME AS WELL. I had kept my computer off overnight for the past 2 days to help with curing the AS5. This morning, I turn it on, every thing is fine. I leave it on, folding, like I normally do, go to my work to pick up my paycheck, come home, and find a BSOD Page Fault, except it is a little scrambled, as in there are some sort of artifacts. I restart, and same thing. Artifacts everywhere, from POST to Windows. I turn it off, back on a few hours later, and now I can't see ANYTHING. It's all a bunch of weirdass colored blocks. I had another monitor, and, thinking it was the monitor, swapped. Same blocks. Crap. So I call BFGTech, and they said that it's the card (My 5200 Ultra works fine). Thank GOD FOR THEIR LIFETIME WARRANTIES. So I got an RMA, and will be getting a replacement in a week. The guy said that "your card's fried.". I don't really buy it, since I dont see any burn marks anywhere, but then again there doesn't have to be marks to be fried. Ugh. They also said the OEM ones like the one I have were one of the "early production batches", so that may have a role in it too. I will be getting a BRAND NEW 6800 Ultra OC as a replacement, so let's hope this one doesn't die on me. I don't get it. I didn't do anything differently... I played DOOM 3 for a good 4 hours... but that's about it. No artifacts while playing that, overheating, nothing. Wonderful and stunning graphics though. Oh well.
EDIT: On the bright side, I believe that my AS5 has cured. It's @ 50 C now after folding for a few hours, which is exactly what it used to be before my RIP 3200 burned up.
