Couple weeks ago, my GTX 780ti died on me all of a sudden. I was getting tons of white boxes and lines all over both of my monitors. After doing every textbook diagnostics, it was time for my to contact EVGA to check on my warranty. Thankfully, I had about 50 days left before the expiration date. So I sent mine in through UPS with their pricey shipping label ($28) and waited a few days. Afterwards, I got an email response from EVGA about sending me a replacement card. Curiously, I googled up the serial/product number that was in the email, and surprisingly, they sent me the GTX 980ti. What an upgrade! I couldn’t be happier. That saved me $500 right there. It’s too bad they didn’t include a backplate on that card but whatever. Back to intense gaming! 😀

By the way, please shut the hell up about the stock heatsink, tech elitists. I have no plans to overclock. I like to keep things efficient by saving power and care less about aesthetics. So just deal with it and move on.
