The ONLY reason I waited 6 months in the que for a 30 series was so I would get one with a 10 year warranty. Sure I will likely upgrade before then, but this one would definitely be used in one machine another machine for its entire warranty period. Had i known they wouldn't guarantee warranties I would have gone with another company or bought something used. I have now gone from a guarantee I would have a working card for the next 9 years to being offered a $60 return on the warranty, and a card that could die any second. This is no way equivalent, and I would never have spent this much on a card without a long-term warranty. They need to be very clear about the plan for warranties 8+ years form now. As it stands I will never buy anything EVGA again, until I see an actual guarantee this current warranty will be honored. If you cant announce said guarantee, I think I may be selling my card and buying from somewhere that does honor warranties. A $60 refund is not even remotely good enough. The comment of" We will honor them while supplies last" is even more problematic, leaves me praying my card will die near the end pof current stock so i can at least have the best chance of having a working one as far into my extended warranty period as possible.
