Guess I should have kept my EVGA 650 TI Boost as a backup.
If I do not Step-up, I'll be dropping the bucks on the card while rocking the 980TI while I take a closer look at the 1080:weirdsmil
Some interesting things going on.
you keep the card until they are ready to send the 1080 to you. well depend where you live there will be a short time w/o a card.
you keep your card until they send you email your card is ready to ship.
you ship your card (this is where it could take a few days).
once evga receives your card they send you the 1080 (takes one day, maybe two at the most.)
card takes a few day to ship to you.
iirc it took me just about a week. i have *heard* of some folks going into a brick and mortar store to pick up a temp and then returning it. i did have an old 570 to get me by if i didn't want to use the intel igpu.
but seriously - its a good idea to always have a (cheap or old) back up card.
i think you get an option to cross ship. you pay upfront for the card which they then send immediately and then credit you back once they receive your card.Edited by looniam - 5/18/16 at 5:28am
