Good luck with your RMA, it certainly wasn't your fault those cards died.
I forget which 650ti boost you bought, but I personally never buy reference based
cards if I can help it. Most EVGA cards mainly differ in stock clock speeds, nothing more, but the majority are reference cards.
I'm not saying reference cards are bad, but I prefer cards with after market coolers on them, and you should look into one for your next purchase.
If I was buying a 670 today, I'd go with this one:
My card has been going strong for almost 3 years, and whenever I play games, it's always overclocked. It rarely if ever goes over 70C on full load, and is very quiet too.Edited by 2010rig - 4/2/13 at 11:38am
