    Don't take this the wrong way but good luck with that. Damned fine cards, XFX - but they are absolute toss to deal with on warranty claims. For that reason alone, I've tended to recommend away from them unless the buyers are legal-savvy and dont mind shouting at people. Personally, I quite enjoy ranting at them

    As an avid gamer myself and only ever buyer XFX products for their warranty alone. I have yet to have a shitty return due to warranty.

    I've returned three fried cards due to overclocking, without quibble, however response times can be sucky, but never waited longer than two weeks.

    And the ranting part is valid. You do have to talk with some aggression when talking to them They dont tend to have grounds to argue

    The last 3 cards I've had were HIS ati ones. The ICEQ range are unbeatable for quietness. dont seem like scan do them ones at the moment. Last one I got had to get from ebuyer.

    Quite like HIS stuff. It always helps when the retailer is happy to deal with returns, but most of them are blissfully unaware of regulations and laws regarding warranties too (in fact, there's an article on BBC tech website currently about that). Another reason to be thankful of lifetime warranties, less arguing
