Newegg's returns are amazing. My friend needed to replace a DOA power supply and motherboard this week from newegg, and they sent replacements before he even mailed the damaged ones back.

But yeah in terms of warranty XFX and EVGA are the top two.
All eVGA needs is a Black PCB for all their cards and you'll be moving to them from XFX

BFG covers overclocking, too. I have a BFG in my wife's computer. All three companies offer a lifetime warranty on their cards (or did... not sure about the new ones).

Yes, EVGA, XFX, and BFG are the tops for Nvidia cards, at least they are currently. It remains to be seen who is and is not staying with Nvidia.

Who needs an additional utility when there are already great ones out there?

Yeah that wouldn't work, you usually give them a credit card number and they put a hold on the cost of the parts until they get the old ones back...

L2P.
