In my opinion the extended warranty is some of EVGA's best pros.
Stock it's 3yrs but you can extend the warranty by either +2 years for 15$ or +7 years for 30$ (that's for a card with under 300$ msrp)
What if your card decides to crap out few months after the original warranty runs out? Buy a new card.
Or with EVGA rma it and perhaps get something more recent in return..
When one of the gpu's on my 9800GX2 crapped out back in 2010 I rma'd it and got a GTX470 Superclocked+ with backplate+High airflow bracket. And it was brand-freaking-new
Or if you get bad temps with your MSI card, do they allow you to take the cooler off and reapply TIM without losing warranty? Some say they do but I don't know anything official.
Stumbled upon the 04G-P4-2766-KR product page in EU EVGA and it happens to show the price of that card..
So reference clocked 2GB model -> reference clocked 4GB model = 40% price premium. But that's probably not the case, I seriously hope so
Looked at the US EVGA pricing where it's 249.99 -> 289.99 = 16% price premium.
So if the EU pricing would get a ~20% price increase then it would be 239€
That would fall in line with these prices as well.
If the 4GB reference model is going to be 239€ then add the 10€ premium for each overclock step reference to SC is 10€ so hopefully SC to FTW is 10€ as well.
4GB FTW ACX could be 259€ then. That or 269€ MAX would be appropriate pricing for it if you ask me.Edited by lagittaja - 6/27/13 at 3:26pm
