Oh if it is not clear who I prefer, look at my nice XFX card in my sign.

And no, XFX dont have any step up.

but as I said in previous post. To step up you pay 2 shipping fees (to ship there and back to you) and pay a sommewhat inflated price. Anyway, nothing you pay when you get it on sale.

you could always try to sell the XFX and use the double lifetime warrenty has a selling point, then buy yourself a new shiny toy with the money.
