evga step-up

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I have used it in the past and it was great, went from a 7800GT CO to a 7900GTKO and it only cost shipping. I have ~36 days left on my 8800GT's and thought I would look and see what was available as a step-up card. The prices they have their step-ups are retarted. For example an 8800GTS 512 KO is like $379 on there, I could get one from newegg for $250 and keep my GT's lol. And no superclocked or SSC cards are available for step-up.

Hmm.. When EVGA states ONE TIME ONLY, do they mean per customer, or per original/retail purchase video card?

That price excludes the trade in value of your card.

It's once per original retail purchase. You can't step up from a step up.

And yes, EVGA bases step up on their "list" prices, not the actual going rates. Although, the price stepping up starts from (the price of your card) is the price you bought it for.

Wait, so lets say i buy a 9800gtx from newegg for $199.99. It is about $350 on their website right now. So one month later when i want to step up to a 9800gtx+, will i step up from the list price at the time i bought it ($350), or list price at the time of the step up?

The step up price for your card is the price you paid for it, not their MSRP price. So it will be from $199, not $350.

Oh...So that means that if i step up to something else, ill have to step up from $199 to whatever is on EVGA's product page? I can't buy a new card from newegg and step up to that?

No, step up is directly from EVGA. You are essentially purchasing it from them, while being credited the invoiced amount for your card (minus shipping and tax). If you bought it for $199 from Newegg, and the new card is $350 on EVGA.com, than you will have to add an extra $150 in order to step up to it.
