video cards die or partially disable themselves more then any other pc part imo... it seems like more of them die then harddrives. i know it has a lot to do with hardware being stressed a lot more, but still....
Not sure what you're trying to say.
Maybe I missed something?
They changed the warranty on us is what he's trying to say. I remember it being a 1yr warranty when I pressed the "buy" button, but now the website says "3 months." I wasn't smart enough to grab screenshots of the "1yr" when I pressed buy. I'm glad you did!
Wow. Bait and switch eh?
Hope it's just a misunderstanding and that the out of service number is actually just listed incorrectly.
Eh, I highly doubt that. Read this they are having the same problems. http://www.overclock.net/online-deals/696010-compusa-ati-radeon-5850-259-99-a-12.html
Good luck on the warranty with that one. Hopefully you won't have any problems.
Do you have your 3 lcds and DP adapter ready?
WTF are you all trippen on anyway? The only thing I’ve that has ever gotten fubard was my motherboard, and that was completely my fault.
Like I said earlier, I JUST had to RMA my Sapphire 5850 because the reference blower fan burnt out. I bought it in early December. I would've just missed the warranty date if I only had a 3mo warranty. Did I run the card like shit? Nope.
A temptation resisted is a true measure of character
For those who missed on deal, Newegg has a sale on a Sapphire 5850 card with a proper 2 year warranty for $279, free shipping.
My experience has been that graphics cards either work when you plug them in and then forever, or they are broken straight out of the box. Maybe I've been really lucky but I've never had to warranty one more than a few days old.
You have been lucky then! I have had two VC go south on me. It sucks bigtime. I'll never buy unless it's made by XFX!
Well for those who you who aren't returning your card. You can purchase a full 3 year warranty for 30$ at squaretrade.
