Giga cards are volt locked no?

And if anything goes wrong with the card it usually happens within the first two years.

Giga cards are volt locked no? source

maybe, maybe not - give me 50% extra warranty over any brand and for resale purpose as well.

Also i think you will find better components used thumb.gif

Newegg has gone down in service.

Less than a year ago my father got a price-match within a day via customer service when the price dropped $20 or $30.

This time he used Newegg "Iron Egg" for a SSD and didn't get a response and it's been a week...

Anyway I don't know people are recommending Gigabyte R9 290 series. Every review I've seen thus far puts the Sapphire Tri-X as the top card out now (Asus/Gigabyte/Sapphire), Powercolor/HIS/MSI aren't out now

Need to decide soon but I do not see any reviews for the MSI card.

I actually prefer the msi card. They improved the twin frozr cooler quite a bit for the 290 series (much beefier), their warranty accommodates replacing the cooler, and it isn't as long as the sapphire card, which matters for us SFF guys tongue.gif I'm excited to see how it performs.

Also, I use Amazon over Newegg whenever possible. I'll even pay a little more to use Amazon because of Prime and a MUCH more customer-friendly return policy. I love Amazon. <3

forget i said gigabyte - do you care more for maybe 2 - 5 more fps than extra yrs warranty?

Not a bash at you just curious if others think the same thumb.gif

At this point I'd bet I'd be more likely to have to use gigabytes warranty considering they're already recalling
