Red face Asus Strix Or Gigabyte Aorus

Hi people, I'm in the market for an RTX 2080 but am deciding between the following 2:
Asus Strix RTX 2080 Advanced Edition (3 Years Warranty)
Temperatures: 61-63 degrees (100% Load) / Gaming

Gigabyte Aorus RTX 2080 (non-extreme) (4 Years Warranty)
Temperatures: 69-74 degrees (100% Load) / Gaming

Temperatures are based on the many reviews on youtube and on bench websites.
  1. Which out of the 2 is a more better choice? Taking into account the additional warranty but higher temperatures the aorus is offering as compared to Asus Strix's better thermals but 1 year less warranty?
  2. If you'd pick the gigabyte one because of the 1 year extra warranty, would the ZOTAC AMP Extreme Edition be then, a better option since it has 5 years warranty? (Just that the reviews are stating bad thermals (around 70 degrees) and flimsy build quality.)
  3. Does build quality and better thermals matter more than warranty?

How about evga xc ultra/ ftw ? Beefy cooler and international warranty, to taiwan. I think it is slightly cheaper than asus or the gigabyte card.

I see, which means I would have to buy from overseas sites like amazon, new egg etc? Can't seem to find a shop in sim lim that sells evga gpu. Have not tried an EVGA gpu before, how is the quality like compared to gigabyte and asus?

Also any idea how long is the wait time if the evga card needs to be sent for service? And how is the transit handled by evga? Would they send a courier to my doortstep to collect the card and send over to their service center (back and forth) / transit costs covered?

How long do MSI gpus typically last?
My previous Gigabyte GTX 670 Windforce lasted me 5 years+ before burning out. (Without needing a single service during the 5 years) Not sure if that's considered a decent lifespan or not

For EVGA you will have to pay shipping there to taiwan, they would cover the shipping back. Yes the shipping time depends on how much you are willing to pay, more = faster. Once rma approved and no physical damagesm they would ship one back to you, typically quite fast (normal shipping time like 7 to 9 days). EVGA can be bought over amazon or newegg. Honestly if you dont mind the wait time in the small event you need to rma, the cost is significantly lower than both of the card you mention. 1328 with gst already calculated in free 7 days shipping. Evga support is 24hrs btw and widely known to be the best in the business. Local card dont always = 1 to 1 exchange if need rma. If they have stock they would give you 1 to 1 but if they dont then they will ship it to taiwan too. So its the same if you think about it.
