Yes EVGA is going to going to die or go crooked because of me and my one RMA'd card, they will not thrive because my one RMA'd card outweighs the years of purchases i have made from them and purchases I will make in the future. This card is not for myself but a friend I was thinking of giving it to, as I plan to get a 5xx series or better.

My ebay ranking is like 1 so I cannot sell there
Craiglist where I usually buy and sell stuff, nobody in my area cares about computer parts
I do not have a high enough rating on OCN or I would have sold it months ago along with my old build.
If you can't find places online to sell items, or are not willing to contribute to OCN to sell here then maybe selling a graphics card isn't you're biggest problem.

I don't think he lives in Toronto because he said he lives in a small area where no one cares about PCs. If he does live in Toronto then I think he's thread is actually just trolling OCN.

agreed. There are better ways to obtain a new card.

Except there are more morons than you with the same line of thought.

How does it feel knowing:
YOU Make warranties limited, and hard to get
YOU Make the wait longer for everyone
YOU Make the investigation and testing period take twice as long
and YOU make companies more skeptical when parts are RMA'd.

There is no glorifying or sweetening what you wanted to do, or thought of doing. Nothing you can say would make it seem more justifiable. Don't do it, Not because you're one person but because you're contributing to it.

Your logic could go so many ways for so many different things you'd find wrong. Just don't do it.

And another thing? You're treating the people posting in your thread badly? No way to gain friends, buddy.

The key is on a free account your ad constantly gets bumped down as new ads go up.

What I do to make sure my ad gets more notice is replace the ad every day to bump it back top the top. Just delete the old one off my account and remake it.

Seems to yield better results that way.

Regardless, if you aren't happy with your current card then you should have done more research before buying it. Deliberately breaking your card to get a new one is unethical no matter how you slice it.

wow, don't sabotage your card to try to get a better one. there is no guarantee they will give you anything better even if you do. if you haven't had any luck selling it, why not try donating it here or giving it to a friend? do the right thing, earn the money to buy a better video card.
