    Just wanted to get some numbers on failure rates on these graphics cards, see if this issue is serious or whether the problem has been exaggerated by the hacks in the press.

    You and the rest of the consumers would love to get these stats.

    You don't think you are going to get real stats by querying the users in a forum about their Mac, do you?

    The poll needs to match the negative result options with equal positive result options, i.e., "Fine, under 6 months", "Fine after 6-12 months", "Fine after 1-2 years"...

    That occurred to me a couple of seconds after I added the poll. Bugger. I'll do another one.

    You're going to a lot of trouble for nothing. We REALLY don't need another repetitive, redundant thread on this beat-to-death subject! You won't get any definitive, reliable information from a poll here, anyway.
