It feels bad to see how little they are offering in credit. Especially with how much the newest GPUs cost!

I would feel this way if an AMD AIB Board Partner was doing the same thing. I don't know what EVGA plans to do with those boards but I do suspect they plan to submit all cards to their RMA Facility for warranty stock or RnD for future reference of why these cards continue to work. Who knows? Only EVGA for sure.

Again, only EVGA is doing this and nobody else. So can't really pin this on nVidia.

Really if you have to finance a GPU, you seriously need to straighten out your priorities.
I disagree. If you can find financing for 0% and you are good with your own money (investing and saving wisely) then you should almost always take advantage. Especially on something like a car purchase. If you can put your money to work while slowly paying off a large purchase then that will net you money in the long-term.

However, on something smaller with shorter financing terms the potential to earn can be negligible.

Okay so two Board partners out of how many?

Power Color
Palit
ASUS
XFX
Flower
Zotac
...

There is a metric poop-ton of nVidia board partners and only two of them are doing this and only one of them covers North America buy back?

I get it though. They want people to purchase new parts wherever possible and the buyback is to get the buyer a slight(and I do mean slight) discount towards their card of preference.

I purchase once and use for the life span of 3 generations. If I had a 980Ti or a 1080Ti, I wouldn't even waste my time picking up a 2080 or Ti because RT is new tech and new tech always has some hiccups. Most notable is lack of RT games available. What, 6 games at most? My Steam Library has 100 games. I won't sweat Ray Tracing since none of those games that I have or will have will get any Ray Tracing focus. Besides that I don't Game to see all the purty visuals. If I stop to smell the roses, they will be the ones on my casket if I am not careful.

Great for screenshotting though.

I am really starting to feel my Oats as a long time member of OCN. Why did we go back to this system again?
