This is in relation to a different version of this card.
I purchased the
PNY VCG88GTSXPB GeForce 8800GTS 640MB 320-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card
worked great for just over 2 years.
...shortly there after I had a random reboot problem that I tracked back to the video card. This took me 2 months to figure out... due to the fact that the card has error codes that you have to catch on the card and then look up online. I was dismayed by this but hoped I was inside what I thought was a 3 year warranty.
I called PNY to ask for a replacement because I assumed I had a 3 year warranty but was told that because I failed to register online I only had the one year warranty. I was also told that the series had been discontinued and so I could not be given an equivalent cart. I don't believe that since it would seem that newegg still stocks the same line. I wasn't expecting the same card per say but the "gentlemen" on the phone was completely uninterested in helping me and gave the impression that he hoped I was just hang up and go away. I paid $350 dollars for that card and they were willing to strand me with none at all do to a clerical err on my part, though I think they would have used the same reason to deny me anyway. PNY has lost a customer for life and I make sure to tell others of my experience with them. I ended up with a 350 dollar paperweight.
