Pros:

Recieved this card when my XFX PVT98GYDLU GeForce 9800 GT 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP SLI card failed on me after 2 years.
My nvidia card died and I set up a support ticket on the xfx website not sure what to expect given past reviews of xfx support. I did register my card when I first bought it - this insures the warranty (not sure if the lifetime warrenty is offered on this card though). Turn around on the online support tickets are around 24hrs on business days. 2 response/replies and I got the go ahead for the RMA - yes I had to pay shipping - but my card was dead so $10 is not that big of a deal. 5 business days there - 3 business days to test and replace (they can send an ati card in lieu of an nvidia or vice verca - I asked for an ati) - and 5 more days to come back (so your looking at 3 weeks give or take a couple of days turn around). The time is a little long but rather than being stuck with a broken card - I got a new one! XFX was true to their word!

Cons:

I did have some issues getting this set up as I have never owned an ATI card before and have to run my system memory at 1333MHz to keep everything stable (the 5 eggs are really for the xfx support that I received). I would give the card 3 eggs as it does not offer crossfire support (but given that it was a replacement for an SLI card that I did not plan on running in SLI - can't complain too much - but would have been nice to have crossfire).
If you are switching from nvidia make sure you uninstall EVERYTHING nvidia - and keep your updates current for Win7. I did have multiple crashes due to system instablity running at 1600MHz - I dropped my DDR3 memory to 1333MHz and increased the voltage manually to 1.6v and have been running smoothly ever since (sucks that I can't get the full 1600MHz out of my memory but not really seeing a performance decrease)

Other Thoughts:

Just wanted to give you fellow newegger's more insight on the return process for XFX - it's not fast service but it's solid. The more you know right?
