Non-availability of new EVGA Superclocked Titans pretty much everywhere :\

Fry's Electronics is the only physical store I could find that stocks it, and the nearest one is two and a half hours away. The only online store one on EVGA's list of "where to buy our products" that is actively selling the card and isn't out of stock is NCIX, selling it for $1030. I couldn't find any online retailers that are actively selling the superclocked version. I buy most of my stuff online in used condition, which has mixed results.

The only reason I want to get an EVGA card is because of the step up program. The program is a gamble--one, buying insurance against the card's failure, and two, against the price difference between the next nVidia card release when the next generation is released. The difference between buying the Titan at retail and a used one on Amazon is $124.01. Not sure if it's worth the gamble of buying a used one either to save the up front cost--I'm sure caution is advisable, certainly when a commodity gets to be more than $200.

I'm bringing this up now because of the timing of CES--if nVidia releases the next generation card, or some variant of the Titan, it might be worth it to go with a retail card now in order to get the next card within 90 days. 90 days is a pretty short window if the out of stock thing keeps up with the next product line.

I may be wrong, but I thought I had seen that Titans weren't part of the step up program.

They aren't.

These are the only cards that are part of the step up program:

The one good thing about a Titan though is that you shouldnt need a upgrade for a bit after buying it. It should be able to handle games for quite awhile.

The financial reasons for buying a Titan through retail channels as opposed to second sale outlets comes down to spending more for a card that has a warranty and will be more likely to not fail versus one that doesn't and maybe won't fail, but will still probably be RMA qualified.

I bought my Titan second hand and it hand warranty through EVGA through the serial number only. No receipt or actual owner is needed. I used the guest RMA procedure.

You can use their site and check a serial number if it has warranty before you buy. Obviously Titans came out last year in February, so you know you're good with an EVGA card atleast.
