Just to note, none of these have lifetime warranty. Only 1+1 year. Possibly why they are cheaper.

This is pretty good for a 280, but you can still get a 4890 for <200 if you shop around, and that card will match it and even beat it in some cases.

There are around 4 or 5 different letter combinations at the end of EVGA product skus for video cards that DONT include life time warranty, TR is one of them..

Quote:
Lifetime Warranty is for all retail Graphics Card and Mainboard products ending in the part numbers AR, AX, BR, BX, DR, DX, FR, FX, SG, SL, or S2.
1 + 1 Year Warranty applies to TX, & TR, LX, and LR cards.
Lays out the codes pretty well, personaly im under the belief that TR codes are the returned for step up or recertification model PCBs and hence they receive the lower end warranty, I might be wrong though.
