Myself I have used PNY for years, always been very reliable, until this last year. I have returned XLR8 video cards twice to them and then they failed again. However it is passed the 1 year mark now and they are denying my 3 year warranty registration. They used to be very good, but now i think they are 100% crap, I still have my old cards from 10 years ago and they work fine still, but these new things are junk in my opinion. I won't use their cards a gain, will choose another company like Asus myself.
