My whole plan for this rig was to last "5 years" so a "lifetime" warranty is kinda wasted on it.
Means the second owner gets the warranty too. That can help you sell a gpu no prob.
I'd go xfx too.

I have heard some stories of some pretty nice upgrades.
Your not going to do much better then this story
So get this... I was at a lan, and this guy was telling me how he got his gtx260 216's for almost free. (I know the guy too, I play supcom and coh all the time with him)
He had 2x 8800gtx's in SLI for years.... one of them was having some problems, only ONE of them.... So he rma'd it...
They wanted to send him back a gtx260....
He said "But I have another 8800gtx..... I can't sli both... it would be a downgrade for me!"
So xfx says "send us the other 8800gtx, we will send you out another gtx260".
Now that is just amazing support.
Oh, and they RMA'd my 8800gt that wasn't stable at stock clocks, and I needed to lower it from stock to get stability. This was after I had taken off the stock cooler and replaced it with an accelero.
Come to think of it... I like Asus a lot too... but I think I will be going xfx next time I buy brand new
