I'm getting an XFX 5850, but the one on newegg says it's currently unavailable http://www.newegg.com/product/product.aspx?Item=N82E168... . Will they be getting any more in stock ? What other trustworthy, well-known website could I buy this card from? Must ship to Missouri. Is this card I good choice? If not, what is a better XFX 5850? Tigerdirect is also out of stock, why is this card so hard to get? Everyone always seems to have plenty of the 5870s, but not 5850s.

That one has been discontinued not just out of stock.

This one will work perfectly for you. It's a reference model and will allow voltage tuning

Only has a 1 year warranty, don't really care for it much. I want only an XFX or any other brand that has a lifetime warranty. But why was it discontinued? By the look of the reviews, it seemed to be a pretty good card.

:lol:  You've never tried to get warranty work through XFX have you.
No, but will they be making any more of them? And what is wrong with it? And if I did get the XFX 5850, and wanted to replace it in the distant future, would they be able to? Since it would be discontinued.

I need a reply soon, I only have a limited amount of time to get a GPU, and I can't manage to find any good reference cards with lifetime warranties.

I may not upgrade by the time the warranty ends though. Are there no other similar cards with lifetime warranty? Picked out a visiontek card which had lifetime warranty, though the XFX was superior. But as I asked before, would XFX be able to replace the 5850 in the future if it were to stop working, since it is discontinued?

So if I contact XFX to replace it, they'll send one of lesser or the same quality? Like if I bought one a month or so from now and it was dysfunctional, they would send me a different model card? Will they not be making any more of them in the future? And what would be the difference between the ZAFC and the ZNFC? I notice that the ZNFC costs slightly more and they both look exactly the same, and the specs are also pretty much the same.

I have the 585X-ZAFC that is the one with the fan in the middle )the new cooler revision) And i can say that is works extremly well under load and is fairly quite, The 585x-ZNFC is the egg shaped cooler that they raped off the 5770 my opinion leave the egg shapped cooler where it is as i doubt it would be effiecient enough to keep the gpu and mem cool under load for extended periods of time.
