You also will most likely be put on a waiting list that can last a good while since eVGA seems to always be out of everything, and you have to have all of your original packaging.

Not saying it doesn't work, but I am saying that it's kind of a catch-22 type deal.
Then there's something different from the Europe method... I can input the price I paid for mine before taxes, and minus that to the new card I want.

At stock speed they should, but some company's cards have hand picked cores for the overclocked editions so they can overclock more and will perform better overall. Go with Asus or eVGA.

I've changed my mind.. I'll get the asus as it is cheaper and i will probably not get another card for a long time. Plus, from the posts, i see the asus is good for OC.

I should've clarified - the MSRP is of the new card you're stepping up to. Say I paid $290 for my 8800GTS 320. The GTX is going for $600 on eVGA's site vs. the ~$500 it sells for on most other sites. I would have to pay $310 plus shipping for the GTX instead of $210 plus shipping. At those prices I might as well just SLI my GTS.

Both XFX and EVGA have great support and lifetime warranties. The thing that differs between them is that EVGA has its step up program for 90 days, and XFX has its double lifetime warranty, which means if you sell the card, the lifetime warranty transfers to the second owner - makes it great for resale. That said, both XFX and EVGA are highly recommended.
