    In the wake of XFX's reduced warranty service, this is good news. Guess all of my gpus will be EVGA from now on. Well done.

    I've only bought one EVGA product, an EVGA GeForce GTS 450. I have absolutely no complaints with this card. Ran the card at 100% GPU usage for over a year and never had a problem. I will definitely be looking to purchase EVGA again and this news makes it so much easier to buy EVGA products.

    Is there still a warranty for 3rd party coolers? I have an EVGA GTX 480 with a Gelid cooler on it and I would certainly like some coverage.

    Very good move, I'll take that point in mind for following recommendations and purchases. Really there was no "heavy" decisive factor for my purchases between the options where I live but the difference in clock speeds, cooler, etc. between the same model of different brands and their price. My friend's ASUS GTS 250 stopped working 1 year and 3 days after he purchased it, he couldn't reclaim warranty; after a year of trying to find someone to fix it, we ended up baking the card and it went back to life fortunately. I know I can't generalize for one case but EVGA's decision is not bad, not bad at all. Hope more companies follow -really, is not the big deal looking at the serial number.

    EVGA is one of NVIDIA's biggest partners for sure. I only buy video cards from them.

    Personally I've never had to RMA any components (I usually upgrade and sell them before they have time to fail) but this is a great move by EVGA, they will increase sales as people will buy them for the greater resale value.

    Very nice evga!
  13. Looks like I'll be purchasing EVGA in the future.
  14. All of us who bought before July 2011 are SOL, except for the lucky few who live in jurisdictions where the registration requirement is unenforceable by law.
