It was $179 for quite a while, so what's so great about the price increasing to $185? Newegg only acts like it's on sale for one day to get people to buy it, really all they did was increase the price from $179 to $190 and then dropped it to $185 for one day sale to get fools like you to buy it. good game newegg.

Poison - Zipzoomfly had it for $184 with free 2nd day for quite some time, I guess newegg is finally noticing and trying to compete although yeah it was at $179 for like....a week lol. I just got my RMA approval for my 6600GT so I can send that in and have them return a 6800GT

no it's not broken. I've been saying this many times before. eVGA has a step up program. within 90 days you can send back whatever card you have and then 'step up' to a higher card and pay the difference between the two, in this case $200.

So within 90 days if you have $200 you can contact eVGA and do the same, upgrade to a 6800GT if you wanted. BUT make sure you don't lose ANYTHING. You must have original packaging, and every component that came inside.

It's aprils 5th now, to may 5th is 30 days, to june 5th is 60 days, to july 5th is 90 days, so your birthday is approx 95-100 days away lol.....close but no cigar....You might have to just ask them for an 'advancement'
