ATI has gone crazy I think

I was over at Rage forums and saw this. ATI is only offering a 1 year warranty on cards bought after AUGUST 31, 2005. So that's any of the new x18** cards. I'd be pissed if I paid $600 for a 520 and 13 months later it craps out. Are they trying to hurt sales? You have to click on "1. Current Warranty Statement and Conditions" after clicking the link.

More about crazy think
  1. Hey I lucked out, I bought two cards directly from ATI in August with 3 year warranty. Funny their site still has products listing 3 year warranty.

  2. I was majorly bummed when WD retail HDD's went to 1 year. I just stuck to OEM 8MB versions with 3 year, but the cheapest deals are still after rebate retial box versions. Speaking of HDD's, when are the Raptor 74GB's ever going to come down in price. :frown:
