Hi, I'm looking at getting a Vortex 3 (i7-3610QM/7970m/8gb/750 WD black), but the warranties and dead pixel guarantees are throwing me off. Most of the time when I see specs, people seem to go for Silver warranty, rather than Gold, is there a reason for this? I mean saving £65 is nice, but having a warranty that will ensure that two years down the line, I can get it fixed if it gives up the ghost, is important to me.
Also, I was looking at the dead pixel guarantees. I was told originally on the phone that if they don't appear within the first month, it's unlikely they will appear within the first year, but is this that important? I am a little OCD about dead pixels, but I thought the tech today means they only appear on inferior screens?
I know there's a good aspect of caution to be had, with decent warranties and guarantees, but am I being over the top, and spending money that all other customers would go "wha?!" at (especially when it can be used to upgrade more aspects of the machine!)?
