I can get the MSI GTX 260 with free COD:WAW and Far Cry 2. Is BFG's lifetime warranty worth more than a potentially $20 cheaper MSI card (after MIR) with two free games? Or should I wait a little bit more for cheaper deals? Thanks in advance.
I have an AMD 790GX board. But the HD 4870 1GB are a bit out of reach. I want to keep budget under 190-200. EVGA and XFX are all $210ish and then 190 after a rebate I can't get for sure. GTX 275 is out of range as well as the HD4890. Plus, I don't think my PSU can handle the increased wattage needs of the two new cards.
You have to watch EVGA. Some of their products no longer have life time warranty.
That is correct, but all there mid to high level graphics card fall under lifetime warranty. Basically anything 150 and over with few exceptions. XFX by far has the best warranty of them all. http://www.evga.com/support/warranty/
Well honestly till I just read the new warranty, I thought EVGA had the best overall. But still, if I had to chose between an EVGA card w/Lifetime Warranty and an XFX, I'd still pick EVGA. Warranty not considered? I'd pick the cheapest or best value, Which has been MSI quite a bit in the range of products I've considered.
Oh, and all of EVGA's GTS 250's(listed on Newegg anyway) have a 1+1 warranty now.
