Another thing.. you know EVGA's 90 day step up program.. how does that work??

say for example i went ahead and bought a GTX 280 right now.. and within the space of 90 days a new card came out, i could step up at the cost of the price difference?? is that how it works?

The day EVGA gives double lifetime warranty they will emerge as the best GFX manufacturer IMO.

QFT. Unfortunately they're like, the world' biggest graphics card manufacturer and that could cost them too much compared to the additional business they got in response. How many people actually know/care about the warranty difference?

Resale value.

Would you consider paying a few more bucks for a used card that was fully under warranty for the rest of your life, or one that was used and no warranty?

XFX has DOUBLE lifetime warranty, so if you sell your card the next user will get a lifetime warranty too. You also get "modder friendly" meaning overclock, heatsink change, and some voltage mods are covered under their warranty.

Yeah.

I went XFX.
That is the same reason I went XFX...three times. I called them and they told me that even though I did a vdroop mod to my XFX 780i board, I could still RMA it if I needed to
