Trubitar went crazy on overclocking one (and killed it on Youtube)

They gave him a replacement...

So, BFG, XFX, and EVGA are the best brands for vid cards? They all cover overclocking with lifetime warranties or is it just XFX and EVGA that give you the lifetime? Any other brands cover overclocking? Speaking of overclocking, r there any processors or ram that is covered under overclocking?

XFX gives you a double lifetime warranty that covers overclocking which means when you sell your card the second owner also gets a full lifetime waranty. as far as I know that is the best waranty any company offers.

EVGA has the same warranty except its not double lifetime...but i think they are in the process of making it to compete with XFX.

But yeah in terms of warranty XFX and EVGA are the top two.
