Was looking up this info today and decided I might as well share what I found. It's not a comprehensive and details are missing, but you can hunt down whatever extras you want.

Graphic Card Manufacturer Warranty

I was too lazy to mark it down while surfing, but some may require the owner to pay shipping (at least to the manufacturer, but they may cover shipping for the RMA product) and/or service fees.

Just an FYI. Not all EVGA products have a lifetime warranty. Their warranty page lists two letters that the part number ends with for parts with lifetime warranty. For instance all the recent $50AR 9600 GSO cards do not have a lifetime warranty because their part numbers end with "TR." Generally speaking their higher end products have lifetime warranties, but their lower end and midrange products may or may not. They just did a great job of making everyone think that they have a lifetime warranty on everything. ;)
