I don't think so as they aren't considered "new".

To answer most of your questions: (1) a fridge cannot cool a PC (2) 64-bit OS for over 3.4GB (3) If a PCIe card fits, it should work (4) Resolution, not screen size (5) Report, not respond to Spam (6) Single-Rail/Non-Modular PSUs are not always better than Multi-Rail/Modular (7) Sequential does not matter as much as random for OS drives (8) Requirements come before hardware for servers

Unfortunately, according to the Official Step-Up FAQ at http://www.evga.com/stepup, recertified cards are not eligible.
Quote:
Q: What is an eligible card?
A: For a card to be eligible for the step up program it must meet the following requirements;
  • It must be an EVGA graphics card. Cards from other manufactures will not be accepted.
  • You must have purchased the card, and be the original owner of the card. Cards obtained as prizes, through EVGA recertification program, cards purchased used and cards originally issued as review units, etc. are not eligible.
  • Card must be in working order and free of cosmetic and physical defects.
  • Card must be registered with EVGA. The registration information (name, address, phone, etc) must match the original invoice.
  • Card must have been purchased with in the 90 days preceding your request for step up.
  • Card must be returned with all original materials and packaging.
  • Please make sure that the card is professionally packed and secured before shipping back to EVGA
  • Cards obtained as part of a complete system from a non approved system vendor are not eligible.
  • Only certain system integrators are currently eligible for the Step-Upâ„¢ Program. See item 7 below.
  • For customers who receive their card as part of a complete computer system, only the card and any associated cables will be required.
  • This Step-Upâ„¢ Program is not valid with any other offers, promotions, etc.

But the question is: if you have a "brand new" recertified card, then can you still take advantage of the Step-Up program? I mean, it kinda sounds like you might be thinking that the question is if you can step up to a recertified card.

to clarify, i am thinking, if you buy a card listed as being recert from somewhere, ie newegg, can it be stepped up? something like this

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130463

it's probably a no though

As I posted above, their FAQ says that recertified cards are not eligible. But I agree that they could have worded it just a bit better.

And since they didn't do a good job of writing that FAQ, I agree that it might be best to contact them directly.
