The only time the Step Up program works is if you plan on using it, which most of us don't. But the transferable lifetime warranty, we will/do

i think the step up is a joke with evga, I mean cmon guys who pays retail for the cards anyway. I counldnt think of a worse way to throw away money then to buy a step up evga card. Oh wait i can think of 1 worse way that is to pay extra to have a decent turn around on a rma cause they made ur card like crap and it failed after 2 months.

In my exp with evga , the customer service was terrible they were not only arrogant but gave me the wrong info also. I will never buy another card from them again. XFX FTW double lifetime warranty which already mentioned is transferrable and also they dont care if you mod it. Evga does anyone who says other is bs without proof in writing . As simpole as xfx has it outlined. Save yourself a hassle and just get urself the XFX and in 18 months when your done with it it has value with the transferrable warranty to a second owner. Crap i missed the warranty registration label on my evga didnt know any better i mean who reads all the crap anyway, so i dont even have a lifetime warranty on a 3 month old card that i already had to rma once.

Im not even gonna disrespect my pc by putting that pos back in there. I also belive the card was the root to another evil I was having trouble with but it hasnt been confirmed so i wont even bring it up. EVGA FTL IMO

LOL, XFX usually offers a model with a black PCB so that's the one I go for.
Seriously, we all know most models are the same cards with slightly different heat sinks.
Some clock better than others, but that's mostly luck of the draw.
So I pick by color.
I like to match the motherboard (what a concept).

I think any either eVGA or XFX (or for that matter, most of the 2nd and 3rd Tier manufacturers as well) will cover your back if it's not all hacked or dented up.
Gotta use thermal paste if re-installing the stock HS.
You can't burn the schnitzel out of it with a soldering iron and expect them to look the other way.

I can't believe ATI vendors haven't released a card with a lot of black (including PCB)and just a touch/hint/smidgen/dab of red.
Make it look like a big shiny black Harley.

I have no idea why manufacturers just make card's with swords, viking babes,
and other game stuff.
Nice classy metal logo would be just fine.
I mean the stupid graphic faces down in 99% of the PCs.

Marketing much? Geez dudes get it together and deliver some kewl product.
Same freakin' designs for 10 years

Oh yeah, start using better fans already!

This is what I could find on the XFX warranty:

Quote:
XFX is excited to announce another industry first: The XFX Double Lifetime Protection! Now you—and your card’s next owner—are both covered by the XFX “shield†of protection. Should something go wrong with your 6 Series or greater Graphics Card, and you’ve registered the card with us online, we’ll cover the cost of repair and service—absolutely free! And, should you sell or transfer ownership of the card, the same service applies to the next owner, as long as they register the card with us online.

Now, it’s all fairly simple, but here are the Double Lifetime Protection specifics:

1. The XFX Double Lifetime Protection goes into effect once the initial Owner (Owner #1) registers the product with us on www.xfxforce.com. At that time, XFX promises that the graphics card purchased (Product) will remain free from any defects in material or workmanship for the lifetime of the Product.
2. A unique Registration ID will be issued for the Product upon confirmation of the registration.
3. Products received by XFX must be in original condition and must be complete with all original components to be covered by the protection.
4. To qualify, any 6 Series or greatrer Graphics Card purchased on or after April 17, 2007 must be registered within the first 30 days of purchase or the protection for the card will be limited to 1 year.
5. To transfer protection to a second owner, the second owner will have to register the card with the same Registration ID originally issued to the card. The existing term of the Protection will also transfer to the second owner.**

What the XFX Double Lifetime Protection covers:

1. The XFX Double Lifetime Protection covers only the repair of a 6 Series or greater Graphics Card. XFX will repair or replace the Product (no refunds). XFX makes no other warranty, express or implied. XFX is not responsible for loss, damage or shipping charges to our RMA Center.
2. Additionally, XFX reserves the right to inspect and verify the defects of the Product(s) that are returned.

XFX's liability under the Double Lifetime Protection is limited to the repair, or, at XFX's discretion, the replacement of the portion(s) of the Product that are found to be defective in material or workmanship. XFX reserves the right to claim shipping fees as well as a service charge* for any incomplete or modified Product that is returned and that requires repair or replacement, or when the Owner is not entitled to any coverage under the XFX Double Lifetime Protection.

To request a Double Lifetime Protection repair, simply go to our Help Desk and fill out a Support Ticket.

This exclusive program is valid only to purchases made in North America (USA or Canada).
just posting it here, not trying to argue

* Service charge is variable based upon actual material costs to repair or replace missing or modified parts to return them to original factory condition.
** See additional details on the XFX Product Registration Page.

Well this is interesting.. i left yesterday with a clear path towards EVGA an i have a look today and the conflict continues..

Now from what im reading.. XFX is modder friendly meaning what exactly.. to what extent do they mean modding.. Overclocking sure.. Voltmodding through software.. or soldering bits to your motherboard?
