Since your card is working good now and has a lifetime warranty, a refurb would probably be a step down.

3) Have you looked into using it for like physX or something?

Thanks for the reply, looking at this its probably not worth rma'ing it due to refurbs. I will probably try selling it (dont think it will though) , since i cannot think of one game I play that uses phyx.

They were actual lowest on the site as I just wanted to be rid of the parts. Kijiji I tried selling my q6600 for 100$ months ago and I tried selling this 260gtx on craiglist for 60$

Before this thread is closed, as it should be because some of you are being extremely immature about this guy's question, I thought I should note that I had a damaged PCI-E slot on my old 680i board and managed to go through 3 8800GTX's (One original, 2 RMA's) trying to trouble shoot the problem. It wasn't till after I returned the 2nd RMA 8800 that they sent me a GTX260, and probably just because they were sick of wasting 8800's on my sorry butt.

So in short, you definitely should never expect them to upgrade you on the first RMA.

Hope this helps unlike 90% of the other posts.

Coolstory, bro.


Like others have said, sell on Kijiji.

I've sold about 40-50 computers this year and tonnes of individual parts just off kijiji!

Learn2Sell before you make stupid decisions and ruin warranty for everybody.............

If they replace his card with a refurb 260, if it breaks again he'd still have the lifetime warranty right?

I guess you did not read the OP. He clearly asked if it was a good idea to commit FRAUD. If you think people telling him NO is "immature" then WHATEVER there dude......
