It doesn't seem to look anymore promising at this time either.  There
doesn't seem to be any added hope expressed by the tech support staff's

Luckily returning my card was fairly painless.  Now I just have to wait
a couple days to receive my ATI Radeon 9250.  It ships out tomorrow, so
if there's any last words of advice/general info... please speak
now!  :)
