I think he said he'd put the card in another machine rather than 'replace' it outright. If you try to sell it, after 2 or 3 yrs, the warranty is over. Isn't there a chance that might lower the value of the card to prospective sellers? Say, there's two cards for sale and the series is the same but one has no warranty left and one has lifetime, would you choose based on that if the asking prices are close?

Btw, you stated previously in a post:
If I were you, I'd avoid the EE models and get one with the reference heatsink if possible.
What's the reason to pursue a reference heatsink? Because, you know what to expect? I am not familiar with the reference heatsinks on GTX 460 cards. I'm familiarizing myself with it, though. Check this?:

ASUS, EVGA, Zotac GeForce GTX 460 Cards Overclocked and Reviewed - AnandTech :: Your Source for Hardware Analysis and News

So, this is a reference heatsink version, right? - EVGA 01G-P3-1370-TR GeForce GTX 460 (Fermi) 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
