how long are video cards made to live, in other words is there some magic number when video cards will start becoming defective? i know all cards are different and what not but is there any number that can be taken into consideration?

I would say no, just like any electronics it could last 1 day or 10 years

I have 5 to 15-year old video cards that still work, and I have a 2 year old one that's dead. It's a mixed bag and totally random. Regardless, the odds are it'll become outdated and underpowered in regards to it's ability to handle new games and advances in general graphics before it actually dies.
