Default Videocard Packaging

What should I use to package my graphics card to send for an RMA?

Put it back in it's original packaging. Then go to UPS or USPS to get a box for your video card package and use peanuts or stuff it with old newspaper.

That would work too, but it's better to have the original packaging for RMA. They kind of expect that. That is why I always keep all my boxes just in case if I have to return it or sell it to someone.
