Just a little heads up to Europeans planning on using the EVGA step up programme.
The exchange cost of a new card is based upon the EVGA-Europe retail value, which is actually way beyond prices that you will find on online retailers such as overclockers etc.
price of GTS512 on EVGA website = $359 ~ £175
price of GTS512 on EU website = E379(!) ~ £258! ~ $530 ARG!
So it turns out just to be extremely expensive to step up if you are a european
Theres the added problem that they are rejigging the EU/USA comms system, so all EU stuff goes through the US, hence long waiting times, and confusing information (one page says prices in dollars, the next, in euros, etc)
I've just spend 2 days trying to get some confirmation from EVGA, and all the above has been confirmed.
Just a little warning to those who were planning on stepping up/ planning on getting an EVGA card, that if you are a european, you should no consider the step-up programme as a selling point.
Now hopefully they'll let me get a GT instead (which wasn't listed as an option since it hasn't been updated yet- sigh)
