if being 'great' is all about people and their process, then i would agree. I have some reservations on the quality of their video cards. It's been a hit or miss for me. Then again, evga isn't only about video cards so

I'm hoping this is not true because if it is, we're getting nothing in return for using all that vram if Watch Dogs is any indication.

The meat and potatoes of the gpu segment is the $199 and under range. I don't see AMD/Nvidia putting 5-6 gb into a $199 card anytime soon.

I also hope Watch Dogs is not an indication of what's to come. I just recently bought my card. Here's hoping GTA V runs better...fingers crossed.

GTA V will be completely dependent on the devs and their effort to make it work well. Hopefully, with the similarities between current gen consoles and PCs, it will turn out much better then GTA IV....but I wouldn't hold my breath.

I'm so happy right now. I signed up to be notified while I had about 20 days left. I guess when they sent out the emails, my email got skipped and I was never notified. DADDYDC650 told me to call them and see if there is a way around it, even though my step up ended back in MAY. I contacted EVGA, and they completely understood. They gave me a 2 day window to go ahead and use the step up program to upgrade to the 6GB SC 780 (there was a bug in the system, but that model is listed again and available for step up), from my SC ACX 3gb version. So now I'm in the process and its now pending. So happy that EVGA was nice enough to open a 2 day window for me.

I know that 6GB isn't really needed at 1080p, but yesterday I receive my ASUS PB278Q 1440p monitor, and I knew I had to jump on it... Of course, I might not even hit more than 3GB, but its a nice "safety net" for future games, and the possibility of me getting another PB278Q

I signed up for the news letter as well and they never contacted me. My step up just expired 3 days ago and I called them. Was pretty much told I was out of luck.

Really? I was over by more than a month. Try and call again, and try to get another person. It's always worth a shot. Let them know again that you didn't recieved am email. Tell them that.

Easy now, their motherboards aren't that great. I'd do some research if I were you.

I'm not planning on upgrading my motherboard until Skylake is out so hopefully EVGA has a sweet board for me then.

like I was saying, call them again and mention you didn't get an email. I was in the same situation. Even being a month and a half over, he was nice enough to open that 2 day window for me. Maybe it was just a guy who wasn't in a good mood at the time. Try calling again.
