I once owned an EVGA 780 SC and with 3 days left on the warranty it gave me a green line on my screen. I sent it to them as requested and they told me that I would be getting one back. When it arrived it was actually a 970 variant and they basically just said, yeah we were just messing with ya… enjoy.
Well my 970 has since been upgraded to a 1080 ti… and yes, it is EVGA. I’ve never had a problem, and I did when I owned an ASUS gpu (not saying I would never own one again though… thats just silly)
