XFX Deceptive Business practice

Summary: Their online support system sucks, and they don't reply for days and days on end. You're unable to contact them at a number so you just sit and wait... Poor communication and deceptive business practices.

Summary: It was a great performing card for about six months then died. XFX customer sevice is impossible when I submitted an RMA they requested me to perform tests that I had stated I already performed then when I replied to them they never responded.
