Question on Forsa 7900GTX


I can get one of these for 240 plus 15 shipping, seems like a pretty decent deal, but as I remember Forsa isn't a brand sold in the US, am I going to have a waranty problem and is this a decent deal?

I found this link that might be helpful

The card its self SHOULD be okay as they use nvidia board ref. design. But like you said, the only thing I would be worried about is RMA'ing if you had to. Looks like they are based in hong kong, so postage and round trip time would be problematic.

Well the card itself will be built by FlexTronic's in China just like almost every other 78/79 card in
the world. You can review their RMA policy here - www.forsa.com.hk .

The only issues I see is their RMA center appears to be in HK only so shipping costs will be high
and they only allow 7 days for a card to get to them after they issue an RMA number. Even using
USPS Global Express Mail the card might take longer than that to get to them.
