I'm reallly considering getting one of these, if I can stretch my funds to do so. I look forward to user's experiences on here. Hopefully, I'll be able to post my own in the near future. Now, we wait...

Mine is a step up with full credit for my SSC GTS 640, paying only S&H. Don't see how I can go wrong.

I am going to give it a pass still happy with my 8800GTX although compaired to the 9800GTX it still consumes alot of power and is hotter but can't justify the cost bot hardly any perform and in some case less.

Is it possible to Step Up 2 cards for one? I'm contemplating on getting a GTX in exchange for my 2 96GTs

That's a nice setup, dude! You just need to work on that birds nest you got in there; get Velcro ties for the wires, lol. Did you put that spades sticker on the 98GTX's fans?
