my evga 8000gt blew up on me last week, as did the motherboard. Im guessing the card took the motherboard with it. I bought the card used though so what do you expect...even though it was in good shape when i bought it. I also bought the power supply used so it could be that aswell, however it seemed to work fine after the card went but i still dont trust it so i bought a new one. At any rate motherboard rma...the card wont work in the new motherboard it makes the alarm noise where there is not enough power even though there is....anyways, its FRIED...like anything off the menu of black fast food chicken joint.

EVGA GTX580 comes with 2.5 yrs warranty, just go with whichever brand has a better rma policy in your country in the end they are all reference card, i actually like msi since its cheaper and cover 3 years warranty.

uhh no
the 580 has an ending in AR (or at least most do, IMO it's hard to find one with a TR ending) meaning it's lifetime. Get your facts straight.

It seems to be the same guy in all those videos and yeah he got a bad card or two or however many.... or it might be his motherboard he could have crap in the pci-e slot causing that. I'm not saying that's the case..... but maybe.... or something else or just plain bad luck but that is not the rule it's the exception

Personally I've had great experiences with EVGA and I buy their GPUs that have a lifetime warranty
I won't buy an Asus GPU because of that exact fact. I will however ALWAYS get an Asus motherboard because their top boards qualify for cross-shipping
EVGA also offers this at I think 29.99 yeah it costs an extra 30$ but you know you won't get your GPU back that has been repaired and might fail again any day

I guess in the end it's what you prefer but I wouldn't make my choice based off one or even 10 people's bad experiences I'd do a couple weeks worth of research and find one that fits my preference.

I went with the EVGA GTX580 and LOVE IT!!!! I was replacing 2x GTX260s and wasn't expecting a big jump in performance but I got it.... I am impressed

Not many GPU makers are still doing lifetime warranty even EVGA is only doing it on the top cards but they have something nobody else does.... the Step Up Program if a newer better GPU comes out within 90 days of your purchase.... just pay the difference and upgrade....

Also as the poster above said ANY EVGA card with a model number ending in AR gets the lifetime warranty I know I just registered my 580 TODAY

looks like we found a fan boy
i had my probs with evga cards. my 8800GTS went out a while ago after the 3.5 year mark. I was hoping to get longer life from the card and since i had a 1 year warrenty i thought i was screwed. I had to resolder the connecting joints to bring the card back to life. Not to mention the 2 boards i owned that were shoddy quality and did not live past 2 years. Quality my a**. Both boards overclocked like crap too....

I have had great experiences with EVGA and horrible ones with Asus, just saying... Six RMAs on my motherboard to receive a working board-- two of them had backplates glued to the bottom of the CPU socket... Go figure.

search for cdolphin RMA to see the story...

EXACTLY!

Yeah I have an Asus motherboard not only that it's an Nforce based motherboard the Striker II Extreme the first one was DOA LCD Poster said "CPU INIT" all I did was call them up and tell them what happened they cross-shipped me a brand new board I had another fail on me (probably my fault but not sure) and I had another one cross-shipped. BTW the one I sent back was covered in dielectric grease from running sub-ambient they didn't say a word about it. So all in all good customer service

As for EVGA I've never had any issues with them, however I've done probably 10 RMAs through them while working at various PC repair shops and have NEVER had ANY issues with their customer service either.
10 RMAs sounds like a lot but others have had more also this is over a 10 year period and 1000+ customers so that's a pretty good ratio if you ask me

if you look at the reviews on say Newegg you have to take the negatives with a grain of salt sometimes because a lot of what I see is user born issues
and a company that does that much business is bound to get a few DOA components not their fault.....

Moral of the story: Do all the research you want, but in the end it comes down to 2 main things.... Luck, and preference
