A card usually fails after the first few weeks so if it doesn't fail within 2 years you are still pretty much good to go.

well we can't get the invoice as he paid with cash and he can't remember when he bought it so that would take a while for the retailer rep to find his reciept...this has gotten me really torn its such a good price...like REALLY REALLY good price

No, but I wrote this from past experience and reports here on OCN. Also, I saw him as heavily using the GTX 580 for two years, by that time he will probably already be considering an upgrade/have enough money saved up in case it fails

If its too good to be true, then there is probably a reason he "paid in cash, and cannot find the invoice" - that being said, I purchased two used Zotac Cards at a decent price and didn't need an invoice, ect. to register them.
