At least. EVGA still have a good lifetime warranty! but no ATI card :(
Which is the primary reason I stick to Evga.....GREAT customer support period!! If I'm investing upwards of $400 - $500 for multi GPU's I want my _ss covered!! Sure, no ATI from them (yet).....Hell I haven't even gotten home from my month at work yet, but got my wife to email me the Serial #'s of 2 x GTX 480's sitting at home in the boxes waiting for me and they are now Registered @ Evga.....complete Lifetime Warranty....

....hope it works for you....if I ever did go ATI (very unlikely) I thought I'd go with XFX...

Every XFX GPU is cover with double life warranty. Having it registered is another story.

Why? Registration is never a problem, is pretty simple. I've owned 4 cards with them and never had a problem with registration.

I was going to post a "Wow dude. You got a free upgrade from a GTX 285 to a 5850 and you're crying over shipping? Suck it up," but then I re-read all the posts here and something doesn't seem right. I haven't had much experience with RMAs for any company, but try talking to the manager or supervisor. If not, send XFX an e-mail and talk to them in a nice manner. I'm sure they'll sort things out for you.

@MrDiaz. Please keep us posted on what happens. Couldn't you RMA it to NCIX instead though?

@Both. Are your GPUs registered?

I could, only problem is that NCIX does not have my card on stock and it could take weeks maybe longer for that to happen. And oddly enough it cost me more money to ship to NCIX that to XFX all the way down in California. I'm just waiting for hear back from XFX, I sent the card today so it might take a few days
