Buy a new card or RMA

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Evga has given me the option to RMA my gtx 280 one time out of warranty. However i have had 3 gtx 280s die on me already(pink screen of death).
The games i only play atm are minecraft, league of legends, and the soon to be released diablo 3.

The options i thought up so far is
1. rma and buy a new card when it breaks again(my last gtx280 only lasted 6months).
2. Buy a Gtx 460 or 6850

My wish is to spend at most $100-120 on a card and it cost me about $35 to ship my card to evga if i do rma which leaves me with $65-85 for a new card.
Thoughts?

Do both, RMA your current card and get buy a card you like then when the RMA'd card comes back put it up for sale on craigslist or something. You can also wait some there have been some good deals on the cards you are looking for just gotta strike when they go up. GL!

Might try just sending it in and keeping it for a spare rig. It will eventually be used somewhere =) Hold off a bit on the new card and wait for a deal wither checking here or on any other deal website. Not sure if I am allowed to put up other .coms on here but you can catch something good if you just keep checking.

RMA it.
When you get it back, just keep it or sell it.
