Even for a lifetime warranty?
I deal with Asus on a daily basis, Gygabite and MSI...I can't actually say my personal feelings about these dealings because I know the reps I deal with are actually members, here but, let's just say I'm less than satisfied.
Calling EVGA is actually a highlight of my day, I speak with people that KNOW what they're talking about. Their RMA program is beyond reproach and in general, they're service is very pleasant.
If you pay a bit of an exaggerated price for a lifetime warranty and "amazing" customer service, I personally think it's worth it...I'm sure the entire EVGA community would agree with me.
If you don't feel that way, that's your business.
If we're going to make comparisons, however; I do ask that we actually compare apples to apples and not apples to oranges.
