Well, you must remmeber they don't actualy ship it, whoever you choose for shipping does, tigerdirect gives your package to UPS or fedex or whatever option you choose then its theirs from there on out.

one good thing about tigerdirect is that those products they sell with the tag " 30 month guarantee" can be returned for WHATEVER reason you want in 30 days

for example, you bought a 6800GS and found out that it cant play your fav game at preferable settings, then you can send em back the card and ask for your money back

but remember if you want a very fast card, get a bigger psu so it wont burn the card and also a faster cpu so it wont bottleneck it.
