Default EVGA Step-Up from Canada?

Hi, I recently bought an EVGA GTX 480, and with the suprising release of the GTX 580 I wanted to do the step-up.... I am hearing conflicting things about doing this from Canada, ie: duties and brokerage fees, unexpected shipping costs etc.

Anyone on these forums ever do a step up, and how did it go?

Went fine...$30 International Shipping Fee...no brokerage fees as its handled as an RMA..allow about 10 business days from the time you ship till you get your new Card.

As rj said, it was painless for me, with no brokerage fees.

I did get nailed for duties/brokerage a few years back (7xxx series), but from all accounts this has been fixed for canada.
