    Cards dieing randomly.
    Shipping an entire range (6800LE, first batches) with the wrong RAM chips meaning playing almost any 3d game on it would crash it (then failing to say there was a problem).
    Fans dieing and / or becoming excessivly noisey.

    Other, various, smaller issues...

    Well, all the bits (including the XFX 6800 Ultra) came through yesterday and we built the PC.

    Runs pretty well, although not quite as well as I'd have expected. He's got an FX-55 in there, 2Gb of Corsair TwinX 2-2-2-5's, and a 500Gb raid 0 set-up, and while it's fast, it doesn't seem to be leaps ahead of my 2400XP and 9800 XT......something's surely not right?
