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

4890's are due to come out mid april so if you can wait til that period comes then good but if you're somewhere itching to get a new card..then again don't get the XXX version if it cost more..same warranty and features except the factory OC which i think about 2% than the stock for a 30$ price is not that catchy..

since its a 24" man you need a GPU with at least 1gb ram..its making your card work 2x than the usual since its a big display and a huge resolution too..

better give that big boy a break man..the card will suffer overheating if you still pursue that size and resolution better get a 4850x2 or a 4850 with 1gb mems on it or if your wallet lets you go for 4870x2 or a single 1..

it would be no use man prolly it would go down(temps) a bit but to a dissapointment ending..since its a 24" screen and very high i mean ultra high resolution..
the card ends up used to the last kb of its juice..
