Theres 2 ways to become famous in tech world. 1. Provide products carrying good value at cheap price. 2. Bring products that thrashes its competitor. well Palit just found a 3rd way, bringing WORST PRODUCTS.

Most companies don't have international warranty so if you buy from US then you'll have to send it to US to claim warranty, so that's out of the list.

The GTX480 runs damn hot so you'll either need an air conditioned room or liquid cooling else the card will start to throttle, specially with the massive ambient temps during summer, HD5870 looks like the best option for you, tell your bro to buy the card and test it extensively, if it passes the test for a few days straight then it'll probably run for a long time.

And beware of XFX Cards, they ditched the reference design and the new design has lots of issues, look at my sig, my HD5850 broke with the first pass of furmark. Tell your bro to get a HD5870 with the reference design(the card that shows up in amd website).

PS: A lot of cards from new egg is DOA(dead on arrival), so make sure that your bro tests the card before returning.

I'm not sure about most cases but rashi WILL NOT give you warranty for a card that was bought abroad, they clearly stated that to me when my HD5850 broke, the card must be imported by them, you can ask the distributors about that.

Given the circumstances its always better to buy computer peripherals from indian stores.

have heard that hd5000 series dont like furmark and when tested, throttle down to low clocks.
the only charm of ordering abroad is the price.I can get a 5870 from US for the same price as a 5850 in india.
and a 480 in usa is almost the same as 470 in india.
too bad yours went kaput :sad:
did you send yours to USA?

RMA done(yippy), they gave a new product, no refurbish or anything, a brand new model that I just registered in the XFX website(weird thing is that the last model is still shown as registered, wonder which unlucky idiot will end up with the broken card :lol: ), model is same, the package is different though, it has a free Assassins creed game(in a disc rather than that crappy AVP digital download last time), the model number does not appear in the website, but the website accepted it, a little bit of googling tells that this model is for european market only :-|, the guys in the center were very very helpful(akshay enterprises), they actually tested the card with the taxing Lost planet 2 benchmark before giving it to me, much better than the crappy rashi service center, I definitely recommend akshay for any kolkataans going for xfx products.

PS: played crysis warhead for sometime, no problems, but I have my fingers crossed.

Nah, that was the case for the HD4xxx series, the HD5xxx series runs damn cool and no throttling in case of furmark, the GTX480/470 however reaches 98c in furmark in european countries with 22c ambient, here it may hit 105c in furmark and throttle down, you need to manually set the fan using Kombustor.

No, mine was a parallel import, the dealer took care of it(actually rma'd it faster than rashi usually does, a bit over 3 weeks)

Re: All Graphics Cards related queries here.

congrats on getting your card back (also the free game). enjoy :smile:
Thanks, and the interesting part is that I still have the serial for AvP noted down, since its still registered to my name tells me that I can use that AvP game code in steam, so I actually ended up getting 2 free games, now that's service :lol:

Re: All Graphics Cards related queries here.

whats the size of the AVP game? surely above 10Gb. so i think you need to run your PC for a few days at least to get it downloaded (almost all 2010 games are above 10Gb).
