I plan to buy a Palit gtx 460 sonic platinum 1gb with 1 year of warranty left. It's in immaculate condition and the price is right too. Besides, I can't afford a new gtx 460/hd6850. My system is capable of running it (amd quad core, 4gb ddr3 ram and a vx550 psu). Is Palit a reliable company? How's their build quality and RMA service? Thanks.
I think there warranties are non transferable so if the card has been registerd in someone elses name or you don't have the original sales receipt you won't have any warranty whether or not there is a year left.
I have a palit GTX 465 since last October, no complaints so far, it has better cooling than the EVGA it is paired with and seems to be solidly built.
