im just looking for a hd 6870 card with lifetime warrenty so if it breaks i can get a replacement without spending another £125 ish

i have found loads of xfx 6870's but how do i know that if i purchase any of them that i will get the lifetime warranty on it? surely if the company selling it had already had it for 30days and they had nor regestered the product with xfx then the lifetime warranty would no longer be able to be activated?

how the life time warranty works i would think is that when a retailer sells you a gpu, a code comes in the box that would ask you to register online so that it is cataloged on their servers. XFX comes with 1 life time warranty(first break, they give you 1 replacement, then no replacements after that)

They have "Lifetime Limited" warranty on the card below from Newegg, so I'm not sure if that is what your looking for?

Not sure what the "Limited Lifetime" warranty covers (currently looking into it).

i would assume limited lifetime was sorta what i was saying, as its life till the first incident, and thats your last warranty card. your warranty ends after receiving the 2nd card.

or perhaps it means when you die the warranty runs out...

a company cant do a human lifetime guarantee only because it would have costed them more in the long run. if a company truly did offer real lifetime, then some users would abuse it and purposefully break their gpu in order to get a replacement. no tech company can really offer for your lifetime guarantee as sending off parts gets pricey. especially over a human lifetime.
