Until you actually try to file a claim with them. Lifetime only means lifetime of the card...and they decide when that lifetime is up.
Perhaps, but I would imagine that would still be longer than some warranties.

I was very impressed with the 460 all by itself, le alone the resonable price (Got it for $150 on sale).

I bought a 480 for my main machine when they first came out and later, a 460 for my media computer. The 460 performs about 95% as well at 1/3 the price I paid for the the 480.

I just bought a GeForce GTX460 and it is serving me very well for my video and movie watching needs. Probably way too much card for just that, it's more geared toward gaming use. Solitaire works fine with this GPU.
