I've got my GT running at 410/1100 right now, but was wondering if you guys thought it was worth it to pay the ~$100 for the step-up program through eVGA and get an Ultra.

Is it worth it to you for another 5fps? Because thats all your really gonna get...

I suppose not...and I'll have to sacrifice a PCI slot, too.

I wish the 512MB GTs would come out so I could trade for one of those :(

Clear point. I agree, thats all your basically going to get for an extra $100 or so. Hotter case, less molex plugs, and 5-8fps differences. Thats all.

Yep definetly not worth it. I just got what was available at the time in around july. At that time the ultra was only available.

Hey isnt the ram size and type on card keeping video cards so expensive? From my specualtion if they do start selling 512mb cards by the end of this year, I'd say you'll probadly see prices start at $599 at lowest.
