Bad card, ugly design, terrible support, poor resale value since Asus only honors original buyer.

That is true for every manufacturer except XFX. No manufacturer has transferable warranties except XFX - and even XFX requires the original buyer fill out a form to transfer the warranty.

I've got to say, there's just one thing that confuses me.

Me: "Hey, my card has a problem, will you take a look since it's within the warranty period?"
SomeCardCompany: "Sure, but we'll need proof of purchase."
Me: "No problem, I'll include a copy of the receipt."
SomeCardCompany: "Great."

How often do they check that the mailing address doesn't have the same name as the receipt/registrant?

Would they ask for some kind of proof (and what could that possibly be) when you handle that query with:

"I'm currently living with Not Me, who is listed on the address above the C/O Me MeLastname line."

or

"He/She is my retired uncle/aunt/stupid brother/sister, doesn't understand computers."

Since when? Asus, Gigabyte and EVGA are all based on serial number for warranty purposes.

Since the original purchaser needs to register the product's serial number within 30 days of purchase with his/her name, purchase info, and billing/shipping address.

It varies depending on the card model, if the original buyer registers it, and/or where they buy it. The 3 year warranty is for the best case scenario. If it's purchased from an "unofficial" retailer (eg. Jet.com), then the warranty starts from when EVGA ships their product to the manufacturer, not when the person buys the product. So it a product has been sitting on a Jet.com's seller's shelf for 3 years, the buyer is SOL.

If you get a cheaper model or refurb, then you're going to get warranty less than 3 years. If the original purchaser forgets to register it, and you're the secondary owner without the original proof of purchase, then EVGA is likely going to use their shipping date as the start of the warranty. Similar to the Jet.com example, you're SOL if they shipped it out to manufacturers years ago.

Regardless of how long the warranty is, the original statement was that unless you are the original buyer you have no warranty and of course you stated that you had to register it within 30 days. Neither which are completely true. You get a warranty from Asus, Gigabyte and EVGA based on serial number whether you buy it from Newegg or Ebay. The warranty might be only a couple of days or none at all if the video card is old and you have to rely on the serial number, but you probably already took that into account if you were buying it from Ebay.
