Good day.

Anyone know which one is about the best in terms of build quality and warranty? I see MSI typically uses more phases then stock, also typically here decent things about asus and gigabyte also.

Well, when you say warranty.... only XFX still provides for a lifetime warranty on their cards.

Newegg only had one XFX 270 and it was the 270X model. Has an aftermarket cooler though, and comes with BF4 if that interests you. OOS for the moment though: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 6814150686

LOL... Just because Newegg (as usual) writes misleading information in product's description doesn't make it "true".

"How long does this limited warranty last?

The limited hardware warranty for Graphics Cards lasts for a time period of two years.

Which products are eligible for a limited lifetime hardware warranty?

The following Graphics Cards are eligible for an extension of the standard two-year limited hardware warranty:

1. XFX Radeon HD 7000 Series Dual Fan (Double Dissipation Edition) Graphics Cards with Ghost Technology; a floating cover design that maximizes airflow by creating exceptional venting throughout the card.

2. XFX Radeon HD 7000 Series Graphics Cards with 10-digit model numbers ending in “R” (example: “FX-797A-TDFR”)

3. XFX Radeon HD 6000, HD 5000, and HD 4000 Series Graphics Cards

4. XFX GeForce GT 520, GT 430, 200, 9000, 8000, 7000, 6000 Series Graphics Cards purchased after April 17, 2007.

If you register any of the specified products noted above online at http://www.xfxforce.com/ within 30 days of purchase, your limited warranty will be EXTENDED for the duration of your life. Registration within 30 days of the date of purchase is a condition precedent to receiving the lifetime warranty.***

*** Products that are not listed above are NOT eligible for a limited lifetime hardware warranty."

Two years if you don't register, and lifetime if you do. So it's still correct...

To quote Anandtech:

Finally, as a Double Dissipation product the 280X DD is covered by XFX’s lifetime warranty policy, contingent on registering the card within 30 days of purchase.
