Not a mistake, they just don't keep 7900's around any more for RMAs. So he got an upgrade, and it's a nice upgrade although a GTS 320MB is no longer a great card it's a great move from a 7900 256MB.

Yup.

If you've got an older card, they simply don't carry them anymore.

I know a couple of other people who got that upgrade too. It depends on the product availability if they cant fix it. Im guessing one can expect a next-gen card once the 8800-series is obsolete! ;)

I had my EVGA 8800 Ultra SC card die on me a couple months ago. I sent it in for RMA wondering what I would get back because they have been out of production for a while. A couple weeks later I had a brand new 8800 Ultra SC in retail packaging at my doorstep. So, they do keep some cards around for a while after production stops. I am just happy to have my Ultra back and not some gimped up 9800 GTX.

The Ultra is probably a special case, since there are still situations where it is the fastest card on the planet, and buyers of that card are more likely to know the difference if they are sent back something lesser. They'll probably stop stocking them when they finally release something that is undeniably better in every situation.
