EVGA GTX 780 Return Question
Hey guys, I just build a new PC about a week ago and got the EVGA GTX 780 for it. I recently just saw though were AMD posted information about their new card and how it should compete with the Nvidia cards. My question is would you suggest returning the card to see if their will be a price cut or would the price cut be so low it won't make a difference? I am looking to have dual monitors in the future and I mostly play games at 1080p right now. Any info is appreciated, Thanks.
I doubt there will be much of a price cut.
Though AMD could see better performance/optimization in the future due to new hardware and the consoles using AMD, I'd stick with a sure thing; your 780. That the 290X will be competitive is speculative until actual comparisons are run.
EVGA's software and customer service are 2nd to none IMO, and that benefit (to me) outweighs any marginal gains that could be had in the future with AMD.
That said, if you want to get a refund, it's officially doable if you bought it from EVGA in the last 30 days (http://www.evga.com/support/warranty/), otherwise you have to go through the vendor you purchased the card at.
If you decide to try and get a refund, if the seller won't do it, I'd still give EVGA a call; they may refund your $ even though it's not policy.
