we can play word games all damn day, that's fine, but no matter how many times you and I wanna dodge the subject it doesn't change the fact that none of the big sellers offer lifetime warrenties.
Best of class offers 3 years.

Can anyone actually find a company that offers a lifetime warrenty on a graphics card/motherboard/PSU ect?

XFX still does lifetime on video cards, and in a lot of cases, double lifetime (as in you sell it to someone else, they also get the lifetime)

Regardless of that, companies did do lifetimes on almost everything until recently, and even still, you can get 2, 3, and 5 year warranties on every part that doesn't have lifetime, for very cheap. I just checked the warranties on every part in my pc.

SSD - 5 year standard
HDD - 3 year $30
PSU - 3 year $15
Mobo - 2 year $17
RAM - Lifetime standard
GPU - Lifetime standard
CPU - 2 year - $17
Case - 2 year standard

That's every part in my pc warrantied for at minimum 2 years (and the parts that are only 2 years, are the ones least likely to fail in my experience. and some of my parts are cheap brands since it started as a budget build. My cost for the extra warranties? About $80.

Again though, why are we even arguing about warranties? 90% of the time if a part is going to fail it's going to be in the first year which is almost always covered under warranty. Unless, like in your case, you're hard on your equipment, then they might fail after that initial year. The OP made a questionable purchase in many peoples' opinions, but whatever, he's happy, cool.

Alright cool, that's literally exactly what I asked for.

not a single part on their site offers a lifetime warrenty. Just so you know not one.
Mine didn't back in 2011 either, So either you're making it up, or I want to see proof.
I wonder how many of you have gotten the hint by now. I don't give a damn about opinions, history, or anything like that. I only give a damn about ONE thing and one thing only. The facts/The truth.
No ifs, ands or buts about it.
I don't care about fanboys and fangirls, I have no allgience. I have no patience for liars and frauds, or crappy customer service. I care about the facts.
Show me the evidence. No evidence, no proof, no argument. Its that simple.
Im a hard ass I know, its the way I've done things for years, and I refuse to let anyone get away with anything other than the truth of the matter.

Want proof, Oh ill go though my list of products on my EVGA "My Products" with -AR model numbers, and show you that they have lifetime warranty.

Could we stop with the warranty talk please? We are getting a little off topic here. This is not what the thread is about...

Question to the OP. All the parts listed in there, you got for $1369? Aren't the two 580s combined like upwards of $600?

Wat.

I've no idea what Alienware costs in Japan but I still do not understand people thinking the I7 3930k is a great processor it is the enthusiast highest IPC sandy(besides the xeon priced 3960x) but that is about it.
On the other hand I've never been much of a single socket platform guy I prefer more power overall to power/core comes with the fact that I don't really game and if I game they aren't that intensive cpu based games.

I saw you upgraded to dual gtx580 well that is quite something I currently have a single gtx570 fact is that I find Dell a bit cheap to use a hd6870 biggrin.gif

Yes, but like i have said 1,000,000,000 times in this thread..I did not want to build my own PC again so I just got this and tossed in some old stuff I had laying around. Oh and about the Gtx-580..My last rig I had was quad sli 580's :-)
