I say do it. Its a question of trading in a 7800GT for a 7800GTX+, for $25-$50 more.

If you have a 7800 and move to a G80 which no doubt many will do it seems like a large amount of wasted money to me. In your case being only around $30 go for it and jump on the offer.

ya idk how evga handles those upgrade deals. I would like to think they do it with a mild priority
I stepped up from the 6600GT to the 6800GT. They got the card back to me within a little over a week I believe.

The thing that sucks though is the prices on their website are ridiculously high compared to a place like newegg. The 6800GT was still listed as $399 when newegg had it for like $325 so that's a drawback of their step up plan.
