Don't think the products are bad but apparently it's really difficult to claim warranty from them if something does go wrong.

Problem with ASUS is when you need to claim warranty service they provide such a horrible experience. Either they deny you're claims and blame you for the issues or it takes months of chasing them around.
Since you're in Canada buy from a brand that has local service centers within the country. For video cards look at Zotac, MSI, and Sapphire.

You're right! Must've had a brain fart. Gigabyte is just as bad as Asus. Corrected it for Zotac.

i rmaed a motherboard with gigabyte and it was the easiest RMA i've ever did. i didn't even have to talk to anyone the whole process to setting up the RMA on there site was automated. was also able to do an advance RMA and after getting the RMA number i called in guy emailed me the Advance forum in 5 mins and the next day the mailed the replacement out.

Look up some reviews on the 5700 Tuf. Seems like some marketing exec got an idea to take the TUF branding and make the cheapest card possible. I don't think other TUF products were as bad as the 5700 but it seems like it's Asus's worst attempt at finding a balance of performance/price in a long time. Hopefully their next gen launch will fix that but for current gen cards Avoid.

Also as mentioned RTX 20 cards appear to have had production stopped meaning that a new gen could be out shortly, if you're not in dire need of a new video card hold up until we see what the next gen has to offer.

Same. Did an RMA with Gigabyte, it cost me about $18 to ship it there and got it back a few weeks later with no issue.

There were a lot of replies, thanks a lot.

from what I see, provided the person is not a hardcore gamer. 1060 6G + 5%-ish = 1660 + 10%-ish = 1660 Super + 3%-ish = 1660 TI.

NVIDIA is known for selling video card by $ per frame/second, so when 3060 comes out next year, NVIDIA will charge whatever is equivalentto that frame/second. so I am guessinng 700$? :)

if the person is serious hardcore gamer, then any x60 line is not good enough for the latest feature, such as RTX etc.

IMHO, no need to wait for 3060 if the budget is 300-ish, maybe in 3 years, a 3060 used will come down to 300 CAD, lol

again, thanks for all the help and replies.

EVGA won't stand behind their product unless you can prove you're the original owner. ASUS doesn't care, they go by serial number. Same with MSI and Gigabyte. If you ask me, a company that has faith in their products covers them, period. EVGA and Sappire and AsRock hide behind an "original receipt" gate keeper, which to me is unethical, they made it, its bad, they should replace it no matter what within warranty....

They tend to stick to the Nvidia reference designs, some of the other OEMs do better by adding their own enhancements - which can also be a great or a mess. Really depends on model, do your research.

I've had to RMA both Asus and EVGA equipment.
Asus took months to fix my equipment.
EVGA mailed out the new equipment immediately after I shipped what they asked me to.

EVGA is definitely one of my favorites and I would pay the slight premium for the customer service. I've bought 7 GPUs since and luckily none of them have had any issues so I did t have to RMA anything recently. The only thing I had to send back was a PSU for EVGA as of late and it was a sketchy Amazon Warehouse deals (50% off) that turned out to be defective.

For such a large ticket item you would probably want a receipt when buying used. I know I saved all of mine for my equipment and registered everything online. Scanned it too in case I need to give it to someone else or sold it online.

So for their RMA process of the defective PSU from amazon, did they ask you to ship it back to their warehouse or you just get to keep it while receiving a brand new one from EVGA?
If that's the case then EVGA definitely has the best RMA in the biz.
Maybe purchasing their stock-b products when they have those sales going on wouldn't be such a bad idea for a video card and psu if they honour their RMA's like this for all their products.

Shipped old one back (just the PSU no cables or anything, the Amazon PSU was shutting down on load and was probably a return from someone else) and they paid for shipping. They mailed a brand new sealed PSU to me the same day. They did hold a charge on my credit card in case I was trying to scam them and released the hold when they recieved my PSU.

No problems with replacement PSU (it was brand new afterall)

I wonder why more manufacturers don't do this. Option of express warranty service if you give them a credit card to put a hold on. Sonos does the same thing too, and it just makes the warranty process so much faster and smoother.

Just going by the recent complaints from customers having to do an RMA with Gigabyte. How long ago was your RMA?
