Default EVGA trade up program - GTX 260 216 core coming.....

I've had my GTX9800 for about 2 1/2 months and it's been great. But I decided to trade up through EVGA and get the newer GTX260 216 core card. Net cost for the 260 after the deal is $299, about the same as if I bought it straight out. I'm sure I could have saved $20-$30 elsewhere, but at least EVGA gave me my original purchase price of $199 for my "old" GTX9800. Lifetime warranty to boot.....nice.......

I shipped my GTX9800 back today....should get my new GTX260 216 core card in about a week or so.....awesome!

I'm upgrading my Samsung 19" widescreen monitor to 24", so I wanted the GTX260 216 core to take advantage of the higher rez for gaming.

All indications show the GTX260 216 core should be a good OC'er. I'll report back when I get it.
