No I used to buy broken cards on ebay then RMA them. But that was a couple of years ago. This is a good reason for saving the boxes your parts come in, and I keep a folder with conputer parts purchases reciptes, besides when you go to resell them they are worth more if you have the original box and everything it came with not to mention the proof of purchase seal.
Now days as soon as I get a card or whatever that requires registration I do it as soon as I get them. Fabe

The thing was they offered a lifetime guarantee. If you read through the terms( at that time) it didn't require you to register the card or say you had to be the originall owner. The only requirement was that all the original stickers had to be on the back of the card and untampered with. So I wasn't violating any of their requirements. Fabe

I had my voice to that, I RMA a 9600GT a couple of months ago without any proof of purchase, they sent me a RMA# along with the shipping address, 3 emails, 10 minutes. It took a week and got back a brand new card which I now have to sell to anyone since I bought a GTX260.

Seeing as how I came into some extra money last night after having to swap my aunts old graphics card for a new one since it died as well, I don't feel like waiting on BFG for a new card and having to pay to ship my old one to them. I've read many complaints on BFG cards saying they don't last very long, so, I'm leaning towards another company.

The card I bought for my aunt last night was from Asus, the same manufacturer that my original card was from, as well as my aunts. The only thing I didn't like was that it had no fan, so I would assume it would overheat very easily and isn't good for doing lots of high end applications like video, photo, games, etc...

I can go into my local Frys to buy a new card as they have many manufacturers to choose from, I just need to know which card won't die out on me in a few months.

Thoughts?

I try and stay with XFX cards or Evga as I take their warranties into consideration due to the fact it seems that graphics cards have some of the highest failure rates out of any other piece of hardware in your system..
That's just my opinion. Fabe
