I just picked up a BFG from Future Shop, the best part about it, I won a $130 gift certificate 2 months ago for Future Shop at work, so, in words it only cost me $38, now that's a good deal!!!!!!!!!!

You seriously can't be that lazy to not want to register your product? I think the fact that EVGA's warranty covers your card even if you mod it, is insanely generous of them. I'm not saying that one is vastly superior to the other, but I think your down talking of EVGA is unjust.

No, the real problem is that everyone thinks their warranty is the greatest and yet most other makers warranties are far better and actually transfer if/when you sell the card.

Warranty is overrated IMO, like people usually just upgrade within a few years anyways , like a 5 year warranty would work out great, as it leaves head room ,and it`s not about the length too completely but the quality, so as the w.e goes `quality over quantity`
