warranty issues with evga

Summary: They make darn good cards so it pains me to say this but I will not buy again from this company.
Pros: This has been a great card for little over 3 years. Fast and quiet.
Cons: Card finally died needed to use lifetime warranty. Evga has horrible customer service with people that do not really care. You must register a lifetime warranty card with evga within 30 days or it defaults to a 3 year warranty. Where does it say this? They claim on the box which no one probably h...
Summary: 1GB, although perfect for its time, just does not cut it anymore with the increasing number of applications (games) that recommend for 2GB or more.
Pros: Decent card for the price, and has lasted me since half-way through 2012. Can run a bit hot at times, but temps can be easily maintained through having a well ventilated case.
Cons: Only downside to the card is it's limited vRAM. 1GB vRAM just doesn't cut it anymore. Only after receiving the 1GB vRAM model did I come to the realization that I could have gotten the 2GB vRAM model for a nominal difference(only $30, give or take), but I decided to stick with it because I did no...
Summary: Most people seem to like this card, and until recently I had nothing to complain about. A bad driver update could easily cause the problems I'm experiencing, but that is fixable. I still like this card.
Pros: Ran great for over a year. Quiet, smooth operation. Great performance for its price. Really solid card overall.
Cons: Around the 1.5 year mark things started going wrong. Several crashes and freezes caused by the card. Supposedly the problem lies within the driver, but after updating, deleting, and reinstalling the driver, the problem was still there. Maybe a mechanical problem developed at some point, or maybe ...
Summary: It's a gamble with this card. It's inexpensive and effective, but at the cost of potentially being a paperweight. I don't game much anymore these days as life has taken over, but for someone like me it's a perfect card (minus the crashing.)
Pros: I've had this card since December of 2011. For the first sixth months, it ran without flaw and all was well. It ran most, if not all of my games on max at a very playable framerate, it was quiet and when it wasn't I didn't have an issue. The card fits just fine in my case, which is on the small s...
Cons: After those first sixth months, the card started to have the notorious tdr bug with a lot of nvidia cards. My computer would get artifacts all over, and then the driver would crash - ending whatever I was playing or doing without warning. It seemed, interestingly, it was only for a few games. Bat...
Cons: It's a little buggy. Every hour or two, it freezes for a couple seconds, then everything goes real fast to catch up. It's still functional, just annoying. And for $200+, I expect it to have no bugs
Summary: It was saddening when the GPU started showing signs of failure after 4 months of use. The GPU's functionality, however, surprised me in how well it performed in graphically-intensive games such as Skyrim and Battlefield 3 on Ultra settings.
Summary: If anything, I hope to get this card replaced either with the same card or newer. I'm glad it can take certain tasks, but as a casual raid party member for WoW, I'd rather face the bosses and trash more than the FPS.
Pros: Low to quiet noise during heavy workloads, puts out brilliant colors and can play majority of things just fine.
Cons: Possible the card i received is faulty. I've tried tinkering with the settings, overclocking in the safest level, yet I hit FPS around 5-18 during WoW Raid bosses and I lag 40% of the time during Diablo III.
