EVGA has the step-up program. You are left without a video card for a little while however so it's a tough choice. Still an awesome way to upgrade if you do.

EVGA's step up program helps you upgrade your graphic card, without paying the full price, for a new one. For example....you have an 8800GTS. If a higher series comes out, you send them your graphic card, and they will send you the newer card. You just have to pay for the difference in price, between the cards. Thing is, it only last for 3 months, after the day you purchased your card. I'm not sure if Nvidia is going, to release higher ones by then.
