New Modder Friendly Warranty
I am happy to announce that XFX has modified our warranty on the 6,7, and 8 series video cards for our North American customers. We now offer a "Modder" friendly warranty per many of your requests. You can see more about the new warranty at:
or if you have any questions just ask myself.

That is great news!! I wish I'd known about it before launching my review as I would have made sure to devote a few paragraphs to this! I updated the review with the info + link.

Taken from my review.
As far as the warranty goes XFX so far is the best in the market offering their usual Double Life Time warranty
wich means you can sell it or give to anyone and that person gets the lifetime warranty.
BUT you also get the new Modder Friendly warranty, wich is a first in the industry.
It lets you Overclock your card and if things go wrong well guess what, XFX will honor the warranty.
You don't have to lie your way out to get your card replaced.
This is good for all series 6,7 and 8 cards !
So if you have a XFX card, whatcha waiting for, register your card and start pushing it !
And again this is also valid for the double life time warranty !
You don't have a deadline to register your card so I really recomand people to register their cards even if you bought it a while ago.

So, is this modder friendly warranty immediately? And does it cover previously purchased cards? Or just any purchased card from here on out?

The warranty changes are already in effect and are backdated to previously purchased 6,7, and 8 series video cards. Do however keep in mind, initially these warranty changes are for our North American customers only. I am currently unaware if other regions will also adopt these changes.

It does look a little confusing so let me help clarify the terms of this new warranty. The website displays
"To qualify, any 6 Series or greater Graphics Card purchased on or after April 17, 2007 must be registered within the first 30 days of purchase"
What this means is that if you purchase a 6,7 or 8 series video card on or after April 17th 2007 you will need to register it within 30 (as is the case with many product warranties these days). However we did not forget about our customers that currently have a 6,7 or 8 series cards. They are also covered by the new terms of this warranty and we recommend they register their video card online as well if they have not.
