Does XFX has a step up program?

I know they have a double lifetime warranty on some of their cards but here is my situation:

I was going to buy an XFX 1gb 4870 and was wondering?

1. Does it have a double lifetime warranty?
2. Does XfX have a step up program so I could maybe get the 4890 when it comes out?
3. Worth getting the XXX version if I plan on overclocking it anyways?

Thanks! +reps

1. Yes they do have the Double Lifetime warranty.
2. No they don't have a step up
3. XXX, Alpha Dog, or any other special named cards (like EVGA SSC, BFG's MaxOC, Sapphire Toxic, HIS IceQ) are all higher binned chips, meant to get better overclocks.

I'd wait, the RV790 chips are supposed to be a good amount faster for the current HD4870 prices.

And they are rumored to have better stock coolers.
