Question EVGA Step Up Question on 8800GTX...

Hey all,

I'm a little curious here. Right now Newegg has a hot deal on the EVGA 8800 GTX. I can get it as low as $300. I paid $300 for each of my 8800 GT's. So heres the question. If I purchase two EVGA 8800GTX's how will the step up program work? What price does the step up program go by? I know my old card will count towards the new card. However will it count as a $300 credit or will all cards regardless of purchase price be worth a certain amount?

This is seriously sweet and if I can take advantage of this situation to get a 9800 GTX I'd love to do so. Also can I step up to an Ultra from a GTX? Or is it GTX to GTX only? Thanks in advance guys!

(Deal to get it cheap.. eVGA 8800 GTX - $300 after MIR - Free Shipping - Newegg - SlickDeals.net Forums )

EDIT: Oh and it has 768MB of ram on the card too.

Yeah I saw your page a little bit ago. But figured I'd post a link just if others don't browse. But to anyone else if you can answer how it works. How much a card counts for as credit?

nonono you upload your invoice, so they only subtract what you paid. So its not a good deal in terms of stepping up (it actually means that they get a much better deal out of you).

grr... hate evga.

but its ok, you come from the US, they'll prolly bump the EU price up a bit more so they can give you a discount.

it doesn't work that way ecause don't you have to buy it from them for MSRP?

Alright gotcha! So I'd probably be best to just wait for the 9 series then. My darn step up on my 8800 GT's passed the 3 month period.

You get credit for the amount YOU paid, then you pay the difference between that and MSRP for the new card.
