Damned Capacitors!

Well I recent lost a motherboard due to one of my two gForce 8600GTS’ blew a few capacitors. I had decided to hold off on calling support at EVGA until I could determine the status of the processor that was in the board that blew. I was content to use the remaining card with the new quad core guts that I had purchased. Well low and behold, in accordance with the laws of our good friend Murphy, the other card blew out. So needless to say I’m angry. More so now then this morning due to the fact that EVGA reports that the cards were not registered so they don’t have access to the lifetime warranty. So I need to shell out more money to get a badass card that will run what I need it to. See below for a depressing pic of the blown cap.
