Perhaps. What can I say I'm just more particularly a video card addict, but also I know I will get more for selling my 7950 GX2 now then I will later when G80 comes out. Plus if I'm lucky I just might be able to Step-Up which to me is an awesome deal.

Just bought the evga 7900gs, should be here tomorrow.
Step up to a G80 based card would be heaven.
Estimated release date on G80?

Will evga really give me a g80 if it comes out within 90 days from now?
G80 for $200 = ftw

jAkUp who works at EVGA told me the you can Step-Up to G80 provided you are in the 90 day period. However that $200 will probably only go so far for a credit on a G80 card. Maybe there will be a 8600 GT or something.

Clawing our way through to the card we found ourselves with something we haven’t seen from XFX before – a high-end overclocked silent graphics card.

Hmmmm....Well provided my counting of 90 days is correct I could buy 2 EVGA 7950 GT KO cards and the last day of the step-up would be December 11th. I'm fairly certain G80 would be out by then. It would be fantastic to step-up to G80.
