Re: Warranty when buying a GPU from Amazon, Newegg?

Updating this if anyone have doubts of buying from Amazon etc.

So I bought 4 items altogether. And it reduces the shipping cost+taxes to $20 for each or so unlike purchasing 1 unit. No additional custom fee/local tax or whatever.
Amazon clears everthing up & send to your house via courier (DHL in my case).

I bought these items - Sapphire Nitro+ 5700XT, Silicon Power 1TB SSD, CM Hyper 212 BE RGB, CM CK550 Keyboard  (Total around $730 including shipping)

3 items aren't available locally but quite good products while the other is unreasonably expensive imo.
The GPU wasn't in stock at the time I placed the order but as soon as it was in stock & shipped, I received the items in 4 days. Received the keyboard 2 days earlier since it was shipped sooner without additional charges. (Same duration)

All items are working fine without any issues & I'm quite satisfied.
So I'd say if you are going to purchase a couple of items altoghether Amazon is quite good. No hassle, unnecessary delay, no additional taxes/charges as far as I know.
I'd keep an eye out for Black Friday if you are shopping  :P

Also for some items like Monitors,Casings & PSUs it isn't worth buying cause taxes are quite high. So better to buy them locally. There are import taxes for some items. But they are added in the bill
Great update, thanks and congrats on getting the new parts and all working well! :)

Small clarification, did shipping + tax cost only around $80 since you combined the items? That's insanely good value especially since it's sent through DHL. Assuming your order was around $650 just for the items while locally it would have cost close to $1000?

Yes total for shipping/handling+ import taxes around $90-95. I don't think they charge additional shipping fees for each item. Just the tax cost. Sometimes that even isn't added.
I wouldn't say $1000. More like $900-950

Damn!!. Didn't know there won't be any taxes locally if you buy directly from amazon. And Glad to see many people are buying 5700XT cards. Just ordered an Asrock 5700XT Taichi X version because they gave a free Asrock G10 Router which costs over $100 and the total price was just $440. But I sent the package to a friend's place in US because i thought our customs will tax my ass like 10-15K for those stuff when they see amazon label and the price. Time to waste more money on blackfriday deals. Thanks for the information.

Well I sincerely hope your friendship is worth more than $440 cuz in 2011 I sent a GTX 560 Ti and an overstock GTX 260 216 to a 'good' friends place since he was supposed to come to LK a month later. Never heard from him ever since. Just sharing my own bitter experience 🙁, don't think much of it

Holy shit dude. Wew. Is he a Sri Lankan? Luckily I don't think this one will do such a thing. Haven't met the guy but I work for him. He is basically my boss. He even sent me a huge box of snacks, some Network exploit tools, kratom powder and a knife once. And my designs worth more than a graphic card for him.

Yeah, he was a Sri Lankan whom I knew for many years here, before he moved to US.
Given your circumstances, sounds like
him losing you won't be worthwhile, besides he even pays you at the end of the day so no worries! ;)

In my personal experience, I did RMA a GTX 1080 bought from new egg. It was bought and shipped to US address though, and RMA product i addressed it to the same USA address. I sent it from here via DHL and costed about 14.5k for courier. No taxes.customs chargers charged since its RMA - i think. they have repaired and sent it to us address in 3 weeks.

If you dont have a US address, check kapruka. they will do from one of theirs, but chargers a small convenience fee

buy from Amazon. Newegg is known to be a pain in the ass for overseas customers.
Amazon has very good support. So even if you send it for RMA you can request for them to pay for the shipping fees after you forward them the bill both to & from.

Was it the standard warranty newegg offers or that Square Trade VGA protection Plan?

This only applies since you got it delivered to a US address, only 30 days if we get it delivered to LK directly, correct?

What went wrong with your 1080 btw? I've never really had anything go wrong with a single modern GPU, last time I had severe issues was with an HD4870 which was notoriously hot, power hungry and prone to failure anyway.
