Buy a Asus or Gigabyte and RMA's follow the SN instead of the buyer.

Why gigabyte instead of MSI? MSI and Asus have and RMA centers in canada but gigbyte you need to ship it to the states.


I will look and see what prices I can find a used 580 for.

Asus IMO.. they have warranty for the card not for the original owner and as you said a RMA centre in Canada..

Any brand that does both and warranty starts on day of purchase rather than manufacture date (gigabyte) will be good.

I didn't know that MSI was by SN as well, I assumed they weren't when you mentioned needing the sellers help with RMA if bought used.

I'm sorry, but it is well known that a GTX480/GTX570 perform better then a 560Ti, i have used 560 Ti's in 6 builds so far, and over 20 GTX480/570's and the 480/570 wins every single time.

The 7850 is a good card, I have one. Mine is over locked to 1100/1300 it's the msi tfiii one, haven't touched the stock voltage to get those clocks. I had higher clocks at 1150/1375 with slight voltage bump but I was gettin some vertical line crashes so went back to this and so far it has been good but not sure if it's really stable yet. I get a constant 60 in skyrim and around 40 ish in bf3

Killswitch has a 580 in the BST forum at the moment... worth a look.

How does the previous owner do this?
