After using a few 5k cards, I haven't had any problem with the new 6k cards I just love them. Performance is great (improvements and hopefully more to come) and no crashes or all of that.

I mean.. the GSODs were annoying back when the 5k cards were new but these launched without much of a problem so drivers do seem better and CF users don't report as many problems it seems. A single card doesn't generally give many problems anyway. Well I don't have that 6950 anymore.. well I do, but I don't use it. I'm just waiting for Bulldozer and then I'll upgrade at once to whatever is around

The warranty will be covered by Scan and not XFX (it is like this for the majority of products in the UK with registered resellers) so you'll be fine. It doesn't matter which brand you buy.

I'm glad that it looks like we have moved on from our little confrontation.
I am not a prick and once again apologize for anything I have said. I can be a real dink sometimes. Take it for what its worth I just wanted to let you know that. If you still have something against me thats fine, I just wanted to clear things from my side.
Knocking dual cores is not my life goal.

As far as AMD,
I loved my Radeons. Loved them.
I stuck up for them, rooted for them and supported them.

In the end most of my games played ok and I was happy with the performance, but not the reliability. I am a pro-troubleshooter and got many things to work right with patches/updates/driver set changes but I still had a glitch here or freeze there.

I actually ordered a Gigabyte 6970 then canceled it 15 minutes later and got my 570. I have seen many more people with smiles on thier faces as Radeon owners with the 6XXX series, but there are still many more AMD driver issue threads then in the Nvidia section, some I have participated in.

It looks like AMD are finally getting around to tackling this for the most part, and this is great news for everyone.
