actually no, you cannot tell it's been there. and I know because I've removed it before.
anyway, you won't have to RMA if you do it right.
anyway, by volt modding, my card is faster than an X1900 XTX and a 7900 GTX.
sure it's only got 256MB VRAM, but that 100MHZ extra over the GTX more than makes up for it. plus it cost a fair bit less.
