Default Video Card Question

My new eVGA 7900GT Video Card has a sticker with the serial number on it. Do I have to take it out or no? Thanks

It's on the video card, not on the box. Is it fine to leave it there anyways?

Yes, leave it on there. I have a 7800GT and also have the same sticker on the video card. It won't do any harm. It's good for it.

Keep it on there. You will need that SN# in case you need to RMA that card. It's doesn't hurt the card in any way to have it on there.
