Im not going to bother anyway, the rip off program *cough* step up program is just a scam to make more money from people... you have to pay the EVGA MRSP, have you seen how much they charge
EVGA Price $259.99
Nearest you can get to that is 247.99 from newegg. I worried about msrp at first, but that price is actually pretty good.
You're talking about waiting 3 months and then buying at msrp direct from the manufacturer, which isn't that bad. By then whatever you've bought is 3 more months out of date and the new product is probably worth an extra 30 bucks plus shipping.
