Mine is 3 years warranty, this 3 months deal applies to any product that has lifetime warranty redface.gif so... Thanks for your concern.! smile.gif

I'm confused.

Did you NOT register the card and that's why you don't qualify?

Or, do you think that because your card is a 3 year Warranty card, that you do not qualify for the step up?
Quote:
You can unlock the Step-Up option for any Limited Lifetime Warranty or 3 Year Warranty product as long as it meets the conditions listed below. Once the Step-Up option is unlocked, you will have 90 days from the original purchase date for your product to start the upgrade process through the EVGA website. Once the Step-up process is started you will receive a confirmation email.

Register your Limited Lifetime Warranty product purchased new from an authorized reseller within 90 days of your original purchase date.

Register your 3 Year Warranty product purchased new from an authorized reseller within 14 days of your original purchase date.

If you should happen to miss your 14 day registration window on your 3 Year Warranty product then you may also purchase an extended warranty within 90 days of your original purchase date to enable the Step-Up option.

Don't worry, your Extended Warranty and Advanced RMA (EAR) purchases now transfers to your new Step-Up product!

The EVGA Step-Up program is currently only available to residents of the United States, Canada, and EU Countries.

If it's an EVGA as your sig suggests you should still have ~1 month left to step up. thumb.gif

I see no reason to get this unless the price is on par with the 7970, if it is not the 7970 is better choice for a single GPU user. It's unlikely they've increased the voltage limit they have no reason to. This is the nVidia equivalent of the 7970 GHz edition (with slightly better memory).

Now that nVidia has increased the price point for the x80 (GTX 780) gpu it would be unusual to have such a large gap from the GTX 780 to the GTX 770.

For a single GPU user =<680/7970 unless you are going for a GTX 780 it would be better to stay with your card and await a price drop when AMD finally release their next cards or buy another card and go SLI/Crossfire.

This is a 680 refresh with better memory! It will be a nice option for a lot of people! smile.gif

Better memory? I thought it was just a rebraid?

I have 2 GK110s already with Titan so not really interested in the 780 as a "good" SteamBox card. I was set to buy another GK110 with the 780 but more that I think about it, my 55" Samsung is only 1080.

You haven't seen many launch marketing graphs then.  This one average at worst, and a lot better than some.

770 isnt provoding a upgrade path from a 7970ghz or 680

Its target audience is new pc builds / upgrading from a much older video card (5 series Nvidia, 6 series AMD). For this purpose its a great product and if priced correctly, eliminates the 7970ghz as a competitor.

AMD will need to innovate (refresh / new product) or price cut. A few free games which you can get for $20 won't entice many if the performance is worse, especially once factoring in the sketchy driver history/current frame rating issues.

Is it a good idea to buy a 4GB 780? As long as you overclock the memory a lot? For a little future proofing.

If they made a 4GB of the 780 that would really make the Titan worthless. there is a reason the 780 is a 3Gb card.


If a 3GB 780 is $650 then a 6GB one would be around $800ish....and the Titan??
whoops I meant 4GB 670. And having two of them in SLI. Because I'm worried about getting two of them in SLI and then having to upgrade later because I can't play any games because the VRAM isn't high enough. :/

Same reason why I bought a 2GB gtx 480 back in 2010.

that is very true. Not sure about the games part though. Since most of the free games AMD has been offering were much more expensive than $20. So it's like sandy bridge to ivy bridge. Although ivy bridge can be useful as an upgrade for higher end setups.

I wonder how the lower end 700 series will compete. Probably just more reducdancy or just slight upgrades over older cards.

Nvidia should have put 3GB on this GTX 770, and like 4GB to the GTX 780. 2GB is just getting hammered soon, there are some games where 2GB is cutting close even at 1080p.
post #99 of 207
I saw the 780 box at micro center. Actually I saw 3 of them. For a moment I thought about it, but then I was like nah, lol. I'm just getting a third titan in the future, and going to call it a day. thumb.gif

from what I see on their website, you can use the Step-up program if you registered your card within 14 days of purchase OR (if you forgot to register within 14 dayss), purchase an extended warranty THEN apply to the step-up program -- the cost of the extended warranty is carried over the step-up cost of new card too. <-- all of this if within 3 months of purchase.

here's a quote from their website...
Quote:
Register your 3 Year Warranty product purchased new from an authorized reseller within 14 days of your original purchase date.

If you should happen to miss your 14 day registration window on your 3 Year Warranty product then you may also purchase an extended warranty within 90 days of your original purchase date to enable the Step-Up option.
Don't worry, your Extended Warranty and Advanced RMA (EAR) purchases now transfers to your new Step-Up product!

just noticed 2010rig post that explains it better at the top of this page wink.gif -- gluck btw (hoping you can use the program)
