Arrow BYE BYE EVGA 7900 GTO!!!!

Grab them while they are still hot!

The price has gone up $30. This is no coincidence. I got 2 for $249 each just 2 days ago. I have a feeling these cards are soon to go BYE BYE and never return. But hey what do I know they could still get more shipments.

IN STOCK:

Umm, wtf? So you buy a GX2, sell it a while later, buy two 7950GT's, ditch them one month later, and then buy two 7900GTO's?

Am I missing something here?

I think that's the understatement of the century.

And with G80 just around the corner?

Now lets just say for some odd reason that EVGA decides not to do step-up right away on G80 due to the high demand. Well in that case my new 90 day step-up takes me to January right in time for Vista and a better chance at step-up. I actually am not spending like crazy just recycling.

Good ol smarty pants people on ebay buy my cards for $249 each the same I paid for the 7900 GTO's (GTX'S with my overclock). So I work the system and get a better card for longer.

Meanwhile G80 prices drop.

It may work. It might not. O well....what can I say I have a serious Video Card Fetish.

Who knows though if Step-Up is available at G80 release I just might be first in line.
