I just RMA'd my 7900GT 256mb and they sent me a beautiful 8800GTS 320mb...

Wait...WAS THAT A MISTAKE?! Dang, you are a lucky one!
Ill try to rma my 8800 gts g92 and maybe expect a 9800 GTX, or maybe even a GX2 if I get lucky...LOL.
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.
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.
