Actually XFX is the only company to offer a double lifetime warranty. You can register the card if you are buying it used for someone else.

It might be fair to say XFX is better for buying used because you get the original warranty.

Yet if your buying new both of them offer lifetime warranties no matter what (unless you physically mod the card or remove sticker I believe)

its lose, not loose...

and we've got our latest flamer/immature guy on the forums :laughing:

lol j/k

anyways, XFX is great because of the double lifetime warranty, but I don't think that really plays a factor, people will buy your graphics card (if you sell it, since thats the point of the double lifetime) even if it doesn't have a warranty anymore

personally, I'll stick with EVGA, plus their heatsink cover things are nice and black, clean and non obtrusive

In case no one knows, all nvidia cards are made in the same factory ( meaning evga and xfx are practically identical except for heat sinks and artwork ). Just go with the best customer service and warranty rating.

wrong..BFG does as well

XFX and EVGA are both very good products...about the same however EVGA is usually cheaper.

I don't see anywhere on BFG's website that its a double lifetime warranty. and BFG will not RMA the card if you over clocked it.

personally I had horrible service from BFG. I got authorization to RMA my card, and when I finalized that, they wanted me to do even more steps, and I said screw it, not dealing with this.
