I abused it...OC'd it to (and past) the max, swapped coolers a few times (currently using a modified Scythe Musashi), took it out of the rig a bunch, folded on it almost 24/7 for about a year, and it's still performing flawlessly. I even ran it for an unknown amount of time with one of the RAM heatsinks off while the RAM was OC'd. I didn't notice it was gone until I heard it hit the bottom of the case when I was pulling it apart for cleaning. I'm sure it had been off for a while, because dust had collected on the sticky tape side of it. It never gave me any indication that it was overheating.
Nice! Sometimes you get some Rambo cards. My 6600GT is still going strong in my file server

^ 24/7 for 5 years now. I OCed it back in the day, it got to like 100C, i didn't care, oven style case, etc.

still perfect

Evga -AR cards, lifetime warranty when regged within 30days. Too bad they don't do ATI. XFX's double lifetime looks good on paper but there are many reports of it being a real hassle in reality.

I really haven't had any bad experiences with them. Granted, I did initiate support rep/customer contact the instant I received the card and asked a lot of questions regarding what was within the allowances of the warranty.
None of my 3 cards from them have given me any problems but I don't think I'd have any trouble getting them RMA'd.

but remember that ymmv always
