@shadow xfx may have 2x lifetime warranty but it only offers 2 years on hd 5970
@jerreece atm xfx black edition is cheepest 1 i can find(on ebuyer) for only £499 ( it was £540 but recently droped in price) . which is cheeper then asus(£519)and sapphire(£540).
I guess i might just go with asus or xfx cant choose.
btw any 1 know how long is his warranty on hd 5970?
If you can get the XFX BE for cheapest, I'd say go for that one.
As far as warranty length, honestly I've never owned a computer component (other than a power supply) for that long without upgrading it anyhow. Granted the 5970 is a high end product right now, so it should serve you for quite a while. But still, anything beyond 2 years is sort of meaningless in my personal opinion.
