Lou the first card ran long enough for me to set the CMOS ok and went on 
for a full boot but next day I got nothing not even a splash screen. I 
returned it and they (Sparten Tech) dragged out replacement for 3weeks 
but then it ran fine for 3 days and nights, I installed several software 
packages with no problems so thinking it stable, I broke it down and 
sent it to Cheryl. It fails to boot, no splash with either an LCD or a 
CRT monitor. It is an ATI but I forget the mod #. Thats all the info I 
have on it. Handling was careful and was packed in anti static bags
