Default stepup

I have a 8800gt with stepup, and would love to snag a 8800gts. But, on the evga website, the cheapest gts is 350 and in real life its 200ar

Life's a b**** and then you die.

The only reason they offer the program is because they charge msrp and not retail price.

But how much did you pay for your 8800 gt? Maybe it will still come out in your favor...


But still ya that sucks.. you probably would be better off just selling it.

would they pay you back if you bought an 8800gt for $300+ and then buy their 8800gts for $300

Sell the GT, buy a GTS. Stepup is only useful for BRAND new cards that havent had their etailer price drop. I paied 359 for my GTs, and traded it towards gx2s

Or stepup to a 9800GTX.
