Here's an interesting story with emphasis on graphics cards failure rates. It was interesting for me to see the results, and I hope it will be interesting for you too. The original story comes from Hardware France and is based upon results from a major un-named French retailer. The data of faulty graphics cards was collected in the period of seven months from August 2008 to March of this year. To build the statistics, an ideal sample amount of at least 500 units was used. The statistics provide reliability information on a 'per brand' and 'per GPU model' basis. You're welcome to comment on the results. Read the English version at GPU Cafe here, or the original French version here at Hardware.fr.
