I hear alot about some trade policy with them?
Would someone mind telling me more about this?
It seems pretty interesting.
Thanks.

The step up program?

I think it is when you can trade in your current eVGA card like a 6600GT and get a more expensive card. So lets say you wanted the 6800GT. You trade the 6600GT in and pay the difference.

Is eVGA the only brand that does this?

I think ATI still has it's trading program. If you buy one of their cards and send in your old one with proof of purchase (doesn't matter what kind of card, even Nvidia) then they send you back $50 USD or $80 CND. Now, this is only with the ATI brand of ATI chip cards. The Powercolor, Sapphire, Diamond (etc.) brands of the ATI chips won't be valid.

Go to the ATI website, i saw it one day on the right hand margin. It should have a picture of an old graphics card with a little pricetag on it.
