my x1900xt in my mac pro was giving me issues that i noticed once installed leopard such as pixel artifacts and screen freezing. I installed windows to see if it was leopard or the card and ive come to the conclusion that it is the card. in windows my screen will just go blank and then eventually come back over and over. before i installed leopard tiger was being slow and the screen would lock up but there were no artifacts so i didnt think it was a gfx card problem. the problem is im pretty certain my warranty just ended as i got my computer in october of last year. Anyone had any luck in getting apple to replace bad parts right after the warranty has expired?

If you do not have extended (3 year) Applecare, looks like you will be buying a new card.

It'd probably be worth talking to them about it though. They might help you out, especially if you can convince them that the problem started before your warranty expired.
