Sapphire warranty for second owners?
Hey guys, if I were to buy a used Sapphire 5870 would I still be covered by the remainder of the 2 year warranty period with just the serial number (like Asus), or do I have to be the original owner with proof of receipt blah etc?
Sapphire doens't have a transferable warranty, only XFX does so you'd have to get the original owner to RMA it for you
What many people will do when being the second owner is make sure the first owner has receipt etc.. and then just have them RMA if there is an issue. That's pretty much the only way I do business just to be safe.
Flying Fish is correct though the only company offering transferable warranty to a 2nd owner is XFX.
Ughhh, that's so shi**y, I really want to buy a used sapphire 5870. Why won't they let you do it like Asus does?? All you need with an Asus card is the serial number
sorry to bring an old thread to life...
but i have the exact same situation... i found a guy with 2 x sapphire 5870 and im curious if there is a way i could take advantage of the remainder of the warranty?
Also what should i look for when buying a used gpu... i realize the guy probably OC'ed them... therefor how safe is it?
PS: if it matters i am considering this vs a 6950 toxic from sapphire 2gb (which is supposedely unlockable, has a bios switch)
AFAIK, the only cards with a transferable warranty are XFX. So, if the seller says he will help with any future RMA, take it at face value. If he has lots of positive rep, might be worth it.
2 x 5870 or 1 x 6950?
I came about 2 sapphire 5870 cards for an attractive price. a little bit more then the 6950
I will be using the cards in my new gaming pc for mainly gaming and a while idle for bitmining...
Is it better to get 2 used 5870s or 1 of the newer 6950s?
I bought a second hand Sapphire HD 6850 from ebay, which was only 3 months old.
I emailed Sapphire about transferring the warranty, all I had to do was take a photo of the gfx card & serial number and it was transferred over.
Appreciate the feedback, even though i just got myself an asus 6950 2gb. But i might need to buy another for crossfire down the line and this info could come in handy!
