since you RMAed to one of nVidia partners, you are practically giving money to nVidia because that partner would have to potentially buy more cards?
Well, PNY had a 5800-U to ship me in stock the day I called, so PNY didn't actually buy an extra card form NVIDIA. Eventually PNY receives credit from NVIDIA for any failed product shipped to PNY, so NVIDIA will likely eat the expense of my failed card in the final accounting.

However, as an NVIDIA stockholder, I wouldn't mind if PNY ate the cost of the failed card.
