    He is either operating on some razer thin profit margins, they are imports or something more sinister, lets hope its not the latter :D

    Must come from Asia or the like.

    The prices of all his stuff are damn low and has too higher rep to be a scam (i think) .

    I thought you needed a valid receipt for the 10 year warranty and 'auction sites' were not legitimate retailers, so you wouldnt get the extended warranty.

    Could be wrong though.

    EDIT: Quoted from EVGA

    "The EVGA warranty is non-transferable. Products purchased second hand, or from an auction site, do not carry any warranty."

    Look at the item values on his 100% feedback. I'd trust that guy with my newborn baby.

    Good feedback but no returns and no warranty makes it too risky for me.

    that's awesome price for a new 580, ebay or not. i'd expect second hand to go at that price at the moment.

    eBay Buyer Protection covers you for 45 days. The option to state a no returns policy is actually a trap for sellers. It means bugger all from the buyer's perspective if you file a claim, basically ebay interprets it as "i just refund without wanting the item back"

    It's more the warranty issue, DragunovHUN. EVGA offer a 10-year warranty if you register in the first 30 days of purchase and show an invoice.

    well im going to give it a try as soon as i get it i mean the ebay invoice along with the paypal invoice should work as its not second hand. Whats the EVGA warrenty if you dont register for the 10 year? is it 1 year normal warrenty?
