I've owned a 4670 video card from both Visiontek as well as Diamond. The Visiontek came with an install CD which did not correctly install the necessary drivers (tried two clean installs -- finally just downloaded a new driver package), and its fan had some very wonky behavior (software fan controls were backwards, and at one point fan spooled up to full and stayed there even after a cold boot). On the other hand, the Diamond version of the card came with the correct driver suite for the card, and the fan seems to work correctly so far (installed the card six days ago). So then, has anybody else had problems with Visiontek lately? I've gotten heavy use out of a Visiontek 2600 XT without one single problem, but this latest debacle will keep me clear of Visiontek cards for a long time.
