If you use their Step-Up Program, the non-transferable warranty isn't really an issue.

If you are outside of the 90 day period it is. I personally would never use the step-up program unless I have a spare GPU laying around, I couldn't stand having my computer sitting around doing nothing for 2-3 weeks.

And if the OP doesn't plan on overclocking, I doubt they plan on modding.

This is true, but it offers some flexibility. Should the user resell the card and that person wants to overclock and option is available without voiding the warranty.
As far as overclocking goes, how do you know the OP won't be overclocking?

As the OP is ordering from Newegg, they can't live outside the US.

This is very true. Though I'm not if shipping charges are covered within the USA, I know they are not outside of the states.

I don't plan on overclocking at this point in time. I don't feel like I know enough about it yet. I also live in the US.

Oh, and before I forget, any suggestions on what memory to go with? I'm looking at the DDR2 SDRAM 800 and 1066 stuff but I keep seeing unsettling reviews.

No matter who you go with someone will have problems with a product at some point down the road. Just because you hear one bad product, doesn't mean the entire product line is defective.

Remember, you always hear about the bad, not the good.
