If you have a GTX 480 and NOW wondering about the warranty, then you could've missed out on the 30 day registering period.

Better do it now, to see if they accept the registration.

But if they decide that your killed your GPU from bad usage (too OCed, burned something), its gone.
Not true.

Can OC etc etc etc...

Just don't be dumb about it and re-flash your bios or fry the card out on purpose.

If you're being careful and they deem it to be "accidental" or you're not at fault...They RMA it.

They're actually the only company that WORKS for you in terms of getting an RMA as opposed to being denied.

Most gpu companys like, EVGA, ASUS or MSI don't care if you take their cards apart as long as it returns in stock form.

Isn't that exactly what I said?

That if you burn something or do something bad to the card, they will not RMA it?

So how exactly its not true?

Your post implied if you oc the card and it fries out, they won't RMA it...That's false, they absolutely will.

They'd RMA anything on the pretense that you didn't purposefully destroy their product.

Blown VRMS, fried out PCB slots...EVGA is extremely occomodating.

I think Defoler ment that if you "too OC, blow something" (basically brick your card by being an idiot with volts/OC), then they normally wouldn't. But, I'm sure it depends on how bad you screwed the card up and what you actually did to it.
