I think we can all agree a lifetime warranty is a pretty good trade off and honestly I don't the red and black is all that bad.

Sadly and eventually yes, still the 88xx series for nVidia was a huge milestone. I didn't take part in the earlier 88xx series but my 8800GT was an awesome card when I had it.

That 8800GTX is still a great Card if you're not playing games on High Res monitors. I played Crysis, Bioshock and COD4 through on high settings on a 19" monitor with that Card and it really was awesome!!! Even Crysis I played through the second time on a 22" and it still was pretty damn good....actually now regret selling it as I could use it in my "hand-me-down" Rig!
