    no step-up program and only 90 day warranty is a deal breaker for me... I prefer paying 149$ for lifetime warranty + step-up :D

    honestly, no good warr=no thanks.

    Openbox Biostar boards for example get fully supported by biostar, but evga's recerts/openboxes get effectively jack :(

    some people would jump on it, I just value the warranty to much, I dont hardmod my cards so if they die i have zero compunction rma'ing them.

    EVGA should just give a 1 year on them, that would be enough to make me consider it, 3 years i would jump at it, but 90days=meh

    Wait somebody will probbly be very happy you posted this info.

    Looks like a folders dream. Recert's are the way to go. I have been folding 9 recertified cards 24/7 for almost a year with no failures. Thanks Boomstik360!

    I'd jump on this if I didn't get crushed with taxes at Newegg. Damn 9%...

    You can step-up recertified cards, but the new card will have the same 90-day warranty...

    Hmmm, they must have changed their step-up policy then, because before cards with 2 and 3 year warranties were eligable, but the new card had the same warranty.

    The new cards now don't have the same warranty. except of they are AX cards... But there are no AX cards to choose atm, therefore the only warranties you can get are either 1+1 year or 1+2 years (the +x years is after the registration of the card). Also, you have to register inside of 30? days in order to get your +x years
