Not a dream, it's part of the warranty. If while the warranty is valid they can't repair or replace your system, you're entitled to a refund or equivalent system.
I know of a few AW customers that had issues with their 7700's that were able to move up to the 9700 under warranty. If you have an extended warranty, you're covered.
Once your warranty expires, you may be on your own, but AW continues to work on systems they can get parts for for a fee. Most of the components in the 5790 will be around for a while yet, as they're all current mainline processors and vid cards, so I wouldn't worry about it.
