Getting BSOD multiple times a day and manufacturer refusing to honor 2-year warranty

Summary: Don't buy this product or from this manufacturer. I've had mine work for about 10 months and then started to get the Blue Screen of Death (BSOD). I created a ticket at their website - [...] sapphiretech.com. They replied that they don't handle RMAs. They told me to email email@example.com. I have emailed firstname.lastname@example.org twice, attaching my Amazon purchase receipt and they have not replied.
Summary: ************** EDIT 2: After only a couple weeks the card started lagging very badly when running games. I've contacted the manufacture for support by email (because they have no phone number) and they have been useless. They send me one scentence replies with no information as to what I should do. How do I diagnose the problem? Is the temp too hot? What is the normal temp? Are there settings I can adjust on my computer? Should I return the card? Can I get some support?
Summary: The card is cheaply made and does not overclock well at all. They also denied my rebate for some technicality and won't allow you to re-apply not that I should have to, I bought the piece of junk, wish that I hadn't now.
Summary: Idk if its driver issue or problems with the video card... Installed latest drivers for Windows 7 64bits, so far games works fine, video playback via HDMI port doesnt work well for me. Have got like 5 BSOD today already. It starts playing video fine, as soon as I touch the PC while doing video playback, video will screw up, mouse cursor also, all text rendering goes weird in my PC screen, and then BSOD.
Summary: I went online and fill out the rebate form but while you are filling out the rebate, there is no where that said the address have to match the billing until you go to print out the last page (which you normally assume is correct). I sent the rebate in right away, and it shown that they received it but they did not send me an email regarding the rejection until the last day that I was able to resubmit.
Summary: I researched this card extensively and it looked like a great buy. After I received it and installed it on my new desktop, I got the blue screen of death. I had to bring it to a professonal to look at the situation. He concluded it was not the card, but the software that came with it. I updated everything and it still did not work. I looked online and found out others had the same problem woth the card being "dead on arrival".
Summary: Der Anzeigetreiber "amdkmdap" reagiert nicht mehr und wurde wiederhergestellt. Das nervt schon seit ich die Karte hab (Juni 2012). Laut Foren liegt es an der Grafikkarte. Ich werde daher erstmal 1 Stern vergeben nachträglich aber falls es doch an mir lag (sprich die Standardspannung meines Mainboards war für die Karte nix oder ähnliches) bekommt die Karte mehr Sterne von mir.
Diese Karte funktioniert nicht mit einem Asus M32n SLI Deluxe

Summary: Nach langem Suchen habe ich mich für diese Karte entschieden. Doch leider wollte diese Karte nicht auf meinem Asus M32n SLI Deluxe funktionieren. Ein paar Pieptöne und mehr passierte nicht. Auch auf einem anderen Asus Mainboard (ca. um die gleiche Zeit wie das M32n SLI Deluxe gekauft)gab es nur ein paar Töne aber kein Bild. Mein Netzteil bringt weit mehr als 600 Watt, somit sollte das auch kein Problem sein.
