Was wondering a couple of things about EVGA's step-up program and the nVidia 300 series video cards. How does the step-up program work and is it pretty simple? If I bought an EVGA card now will the new nVidia cards be out in time for me to take advantage of it?

It's 30 days, and no, I don't think so. :(

It's usually a 90 day stepup period. Once they receive the old card, it's a couple of days and then they'll send you a new one. You can't step up a card that has already been stepped up ;)

 

C'mon guys, let's give some factual information :lol:

For a minute I thought they changed it or something thx for clearing that up. Companies do like to change things w/o your knowledge sometimes. I thought it was common knowledge that EVGA stepup is a 90 day period. Guess not. :lol:

I clearly said "I think" which automatically excuses me from the embarrassment of being wrong. :P:lol:

Thanks for the link that answered most of my questions. Disappointed to see that not all of their video cards qualify. The only other question I have is cost to step-up but not knowing anything about the new cards much less how much they will cost just need to wait I guess until they actually come out.

Step up works like this:

You buy a GTX 260 for 170. Must be BRAND NEW, not used from someone else. You upload your invoice. Until 90 days, if a GTX 280 is priced at say 250, (MSRP, not a sale price, must be purchased from EVGA Store) You pay the 80 dollar difference, plus shipping to EVGA. THey then inspect the card, and send you a GTX 280. This can be done with anything that supports the step up program.

Ok I think I've got it. Looks like I'm going to order a pair of 275s. I was thinking of buying the 1792MB versions but they don't appear to qualify. Standard 896MB will do just as well for the short-term.

I ended up choosing an EVGA GTX 275 (and am pretty happy with it)

 

When deciding which card to get, I came across a review that put the 2 versions of the card against each other, and the 275 with double the memory was not worth it. I forget who ran that match up, but it wouldn't be hard to find.

 

*edit - oh, and I got my 275 for $150 (after rebate) so no step-up would be a good deal for me, lol
