I bought an XFX RADEON HD 6870 from Scan for £178 delivered.
There are slighly cheap 6870's around but Scan offered the 6870 with a 5 year warranty as opposed to the other cards all offering 2 years. So I paid a little extra and went with XFX.
Upon receiving my card and registering it with XFX I was told that XFX OFFER NO WARRANTY IN EUROPE at all. The responsibility is witht he retailer....ok, fair enough.
Now Scan say its 2 years with them and the latter 3 years with XFX.
Firstly...are XFX as a manufacturer allowed to do this?
Secondly, the box of the card came opened at one end and ripped (at the corners like some numpty had forced it open - there was also finger indents on the inner box). Does this mean I have been sent some dodgy return or something?
Combined with the warranty issue and box situation above, do you think I should return this within my 7 days of purchase?
This card is for Christmas so I have nothing to test it on either.
