EVGA do a superclocked GTS ,Does that mean they've tried to OC all their other GTS cards and failed ,That would mean EVGA are bad overclocking GTS's wouldnt it cause they've tried and failed.

I dont think that any card can have a lifetime warranty by EU laws... if EU laws dont apply in the UK then its lifetime in the UK for EVGA as well.

Who cares about pointless lifetime warranties. Just get the cheapest card.

Evga warranty applies if you...

Overclock, Change the heatsink for a waterblock or aftermarket(as long as u keep the original).

They also have a reputation for the best customer support and they arent a company that just sell the card to you and forgets you, they care about you.

Overclock it all you want. If it dies send it back and get a new one. If you really cant have a card without the long warranty, go with the BFG.

What d'ya mean pointless lifetime warranties? Theres nothing but gain in buying something which is only 10 or 20 dearer and getting Lifetime over 2years...

What happens if in 3Years the card dies, With the cheaper one you gotta go buy a new card.. With Lifetime they send you one free, chances are it will be better than the 8800GTS as they will be old tech and won't be manufactured anymore.

Not really,but I was just being honest,right now eVGA is the best. :) What can I say ? I thought it over and came to the conclusion that the step up on these cards would be asking a bit much,at this time.Hopefully in the near future eVGA changes there position on the matter. :D
