Thread: evga step up

    evga step up

    when you use the step up program, do you have to send it back to the place you bought the product from? or do you send it back to evga? if its evga, is there anyplace you can buy these re-certified cards? just wondering because I want to know if there is any site i can snag a 320 or 640mb 8800gts from someone who stepped up to a gtx.

    Read their policy, its a good one to know, esp if your considering buying a gfx card.

    But to answer your question, you return to evga.

    You can only "step up" within 90 days of the purchase of the card you want to replace? I'm this just to help you buy now and replace it as soon as something better comes around? I mean who upgrades their card that quickly?

    Its made so if something better comes out in 90 days you'll be able to step up to a better card without shelling out the cash for it at full price. It's a good way of protecting yourself from wasting large amounts of money to constantly keep your pc top of the line.

    It's also useful if you have money for a midrange card now, need something to get by, and will have money for a higher end card in less than three months time.

    IE. 8800GTX -> Watercooled or Ultra. if your already paying that much, you'll probably appreciate the step up.

    Also its only offered for certain cards (high end).
