That's a good price for a 6870. Most likely if they fail, they fail right near the beginning, so I tend to not worry about the longer warranty. Plus in less than 2 years, if you're like the rest of us, you'll be wanting to upgrade again (maybe hoping the card will fail :kaola:  )

Go for the 6870. No matter if reference.
