All company's must not be using the anti static wrap as my 2900xt came in a box with foam around it and no anti static bag either, not just the first one but second one also....

Is there really a reason to worry about there not being an anti static wraper? I mean ram doesnt come in an anti static wrap. At least any of the ram iv ever bought. I think the risks would be minimum as theres nobody touching the card, correct?

I dont know why they ever bother selling cards that only have one dvi slot anymore.... This is a shame of a card.

Let me re phrase that. I dont know why they even bother coming out with "new" cards that dont have dual dvi ports.

Yea I bought a cheap nvidia based card the other day for a Linux Folding only rig and it was like this one, one DVI port and one VGA but it was less than $40.00 also...
