If XFX offers the same warranty they will be top dog in the ATI market by 500%. I would say 75% of people would use ATI over NVidia if ATIs partners didn't suck and rip people off.

I guess then the only question is will XFX based ATI products be included in their Modder friendly double lifetime warranty?
