Well thats nice to know. Since you work there let me ask you a question. Do I have to purchase the card from the EVGA store, or can I purchase from a retailer like the egg?

Also ,and I'm sure you can't answer this but, would 90 days from say 10/15 be enough coverage for the 260 replacement

Thanks for the feedback guys

Oh yea and EVGA still hasn't gotten one ELP product to someone from Nvnews. (Unless someone had one and didn't talk about it.)
Actually I should have clarified, but my friend is buying my old rig next week. So my video card in this rig is going with it, so have to buy a stop-gap card in the mean time which is why bfg and evga are my 2 options.

You can buy it anywhere, and I am not sure about your second question!

Well that really kind of sucks then. If it goes in order then maybe Nekro might get to play around with the product in 2 years time, maybe me in the next 5. I'm well within the top 1000 of people, and I'm sure there are plenty of people behind me. I probably signed up within the first day it was active but it's possible that nvnews wasn't the first site to learn of the ELP.

Asus doesn't feel as warm and cuddly as EVGA to me I've dealt with EVGA for quite a few years now on products, and I honestly feel that if there's an issue, I can get right to the people who know what's going on...

EVGA products do tend to be more affordable than most, and if I had a choice between EVGA and BFG, I'd have to say EVGA.

Now that I look at the website it seems that I was reading the step-up incorrectly for EVGA. Looks like I can get a 275.... the, you can only step-up TO a 260 instead of a 275.

Looks like I'll go with an EVGA 275... now do I go with the stock one or the FTW edition......

I got a 275, and I am loving it. I don't see myself getting a new card anytime soon.

I like both, but where I live, it's easier to find BFG products and I haven't had any issues with them.

If I was going to spend the money to get a GTX 275 ,I would get the HD 5850 ,it is faster and you already have a DX 11 card that is as fast as a GTX 285 in most cases.IMO Looking at the reviews it looks to be a good card ,The trouble with getting a GTX 275 and hopeing for a step-up ,the new GT300 may not be out until Q1 2010 and I look if they do get some out by december ,it will just be a few ,according to the rummors of low yeilds.

That's true, but I believe if they don't have the product in stock because of availability, as long as you have started the step-up process you're good to go as soon as the new ones are in stock.

The 5850 is so darn tempting though.
