so then buy yourself a s939 system with some overclockable ram. Get it to effective speeds comparable to DDR2, and away you go.

Not entirly true as there is no more support at all for 16 bit programs with the new releases of many OS's.

Read the next few lines. That was just the initiation date of the program. It's not perpetual. 90 days after purchase.

"The EVGA Step-Up™ Program is available to all EVGA graphics card customers who purchased their graphics cards on or after 1 FEB 2004, and are within 90 days of their purchase date (based upon their invoice). Customers who received their EVGA graphics card as part of a complete computer system are not eligible "
