If the card breaks you can always RMA it to EVGA. I bought my 560ti 448 cores FTW off of a guy for $150 on craigslist, he didn't register it so I did. It shows up with the 3 year warranty, and if it breaks I can RMA it!
thats what I was thinking..but this pny has a lifetime warranty and is still inbox new. i think that is worth another 40$..but as long as he hasnt registered the card yet, because lifetime only applies to OP, not second hand buyer.
