Default Idea...

I have a BFG 6600GT PCIE.

I was just thinking... If i went to futureshop and bought one of their, say, 7800GTX's or something, by BFG, and I brought it home, installed it in my computer, and returned my 6600GT pcie in the 7800GTX box, do you think they'd notice?

I mean, I buy lots of stuff and return it, they never check the box. THey have a 14-day return policy, and their customer service isn't exactly what you call, the brighest, when it comes to returns, usually they never check the box

Do you think they would for a large purchase like the 7800GTX? Valued at about 600 in Canada @ futureshop
