I just bought an Evga PErsonal cinema GEforce 4 440 MX, and when I registered it with evga I got an email telling me I could trade up.
The question is: Is the PErsonal cinema 5200 Fx worth 20 bucks plus shipping more? Should I trade my card? Also is it work 70 80 bucks to trade up for the 5600 fx? thanks to anyone who replies

Do you plan on gaming with the card? If so then yes you should, to the 5200. $70 to $80 on top of what you paid is a total rip off for the 5600nu. The 5200 adds pixel shader support somthing that my integrated 440 is missing.

so we're talking a cinema GF4MX to cinema FX5200 for about $30 total? Yes I'd do it, that's a decent deal. The FX5200 is not the greatest card, but considering you'd be going from DX7.1 support to DX9 it's well worth it. And yes it is an upgrade overall from a GF4MX, especially if it's the Ultra version :)

With this program could go from a FX 5900 ultra to a nv40 for less than $300? just need to know.

Thanks for the help, then I will try to do it. As to the question in the last post, I think you have to have an EVGA card purchased within the last 3 months, and if you do the I dont know but you can check it out at www.evga.com

Yes i read that with a fine tooth comb, i feel the deal SUCKS

First of all they dont cross ship, you send them your card and pay them.

Then

You only get to 'trade up' if you purchased it in the last 90 days.

so if the nv40 isnt out in 90 days heh

I got the nv35 right when it came out for $500. Had to work it off too. I love it I might just go to the NV45 when it comes out if the performance is better and they make another Dawn if you know what I mean ;) . Thanks for the info on this program.

I don't think you can.
teh terms stated that there's a 3 months time limit heh.

So that this evga trade up program is pretty useless.
