Earlier today we spent $5 to get a suitable postal box. Then the postage for the box with the video card (710 grams) set us back $19. So in total the RMA set us back $24 Canadian.
Canada Post said it will take about 7 days to make it to Brea, California where EVGA’s RMA department is located.
We did not pay extra for a tracking number as that would have doubled the cost and we prefer to retain funds for more hardware. We have proof of shipping with the receipt so we expect the package will surface sooner or later.
EVGA suggested 1-3 days after receipt for a replacement to be shipped. We mentioned that the machine is µATX which is why we bought the model with a single fan. EVGA will upgrade a card if the model under warranty cannot be replaced with an exact model.
The GTX 1060 is a very powerful card which is why we chose it for 1920×1080 gaming. With close to 4 TFLOPS of performance it’s going to be adequate for several years to come.
