I know they don't count tax and shipping lol, but 1:1 for retail price is what I got.

It's been hit-or-miss on whether they catch the difference. 3.0Charlie stepped up 2 GTX260s just before I did mine, they did his at par. It says right on the page that you are supposed to put in the amount in US funds, but I don't think anyone from Canada is adhering to that.

Mine was dropped to $164... but I don't want to pay USD$50 for the upgrade (plus shipping there).. lol

I guess I'll cancel and try again in a week or so..

Anyone know if there's a limit on how often I can submit step-up requests?

If I sold my 9800gtx+ and bought a gtx 260 (used)... how much would that run me?

Thier is no limit, provided the Step-up request is within the 90 days of purchase date as reflected on your Invoice.

I just stepped up my X58 vanilla Board to the Classified Board and they did not convert CDN to USD. With that said, I was going to step-up my 8800GTX to the 9800GX2 (glad I didn't) about a year ago and they did convert CDN to USD....go figure.

I'm thinking of doing a step-up too.
How long does the process usually take?
I don't have another video card that I can throw in while I wait.
