Is this because they know 9800GX2 won't do too well. Or at least compared to the ATI 3870X2?

They really are desperate to sell these things. But then again they need special offers because they cost some major moolah.

I think it has more to do with the initial cost of the card, and is likely an attempt to get a bunch of early cards out to consumers. I don't think it has anything to do with them being desperate to sell them, seeing as the cards just came out, and I would really doubt that Evga already feels they bought more then they can sell so early on.

It's all speculation though. Personally, I think this is happening because EVGA is just such a badass company ( yes, I've become an EVGA fanboy of sorts)

I wonder if I can setup a step-up on 2 of my evgas I have in SLI to a single 9800gx2?

I cutout one UPC from the box for a mail-in rebate a few weeks ago, I wonder if this will screw up a step-up?
