But if you don't care about the warranty and don't want the EE, then those are the cards for you.
Fair enough on the warranty aspect, but there are other manufacturers that offer two or three year warranties (and Zotac also offers lifetime warranties), and realistically, by the time the warranty is up the cards will either be nearly obsolete or you'll be able to replace them with something equal or better for a low cost. But that's just my opinion; if you feel safer with a lifetime warranty, then more power to you.
