Nevermind... This Epox board is definitely defective - probably due to bad/bulging capacitors. I replaced it with a ASUS board that seems to be running properly with the 5500 at least.

Thanks!

Okay, I got another board, this time, a SOYO KT333 Dragon Ultra Platinum Edition. After testing with the 5500 with no problems, I switched to the 6000 and everything is working quite well. I'm running an Athlon XP 2600+ in this system.

Since someone asked, here are photos of my 6000

I added heat sinks to the ram chips, and the power connectors to the board.

Cheers!

I am quite pleased. I was worried that the motherboard failure might have damaged the card, since there was display corruption while the old board was in its last hours. I have had to dispose of several video cards in the past due to failed video ram, so I was afraid the 6000 was damaged.

Fortunately, after getting a good board (with no swollen capacitors) and running tests for several hours, there have been no video errors at all. I also have another board on order which should be compatible with the 6000, and is brand new in box, so I hope I will be able to keep this card running for a long time.

I did have a backup of my system configuration, so the 6000 is fortunately still configured as I left it. Now I just need to play some games.

Cheers!
