There's another $20 mail-in rebate on top of that. Normally those wouldn't be worth it, but the fulfillment houses eVGA has used for its rebates has done an excellent job of processing claims in a timely manner.

EDIT: Tempting... What kind of power cables does it need? 2x 8pin?

What are some of the big difference between the 280/285? Clock speed(s)?

i do not think EVGA allow step up unless you have bought the card and are not the second owner

when i applied step up from my gtx280 ssc to gtx295 they ask for the date of purchase, receipt of sale and the store has to be a proper evga partner.

If he bought it from mwave how would he not be the 1st owner ???

Clock speeds. with the clocks the same on a GTX 280 and GTX 285 there is no difference -

GTX 280 FTW, it's cheaper and performance is the same.
