Will this work? (Assuming $1028.xx total price after tax):
Buy a $400 GC -> Get a $75 GC
Buy a $480 GC (must do multiples of $10) -> Get a $75 GC
Consolidate the $400 GC + $480 GC into a single $880 GC
Use the $880 GC + 2x $75 promo cards = $1030 total
No extra charge on the CC required
No promo card left.
Total spending: only $880.
No headache on what to do with the extra $75 card.
Less than $2 left on the GC, but who cares? And if you do, it does not expire either.
I recommend people give it a shot. In the worst case, if forced to put $1 on the CC, your consolidated gift card will have $1 as a remaining balance. No harm either way. (deelseaker)
Based on the reports, this is a YMMV situation. Some people were allowed to use all the GCs, some people were forced to use a CC.

I was looking on the monitor tab and didn't catch it at first, but it is listed on the lower right of the specs. Not a very good video card, but that seems to be the trend on these deals for awhile now.
Could the 460W PSU be replaced with a standard 750W PSU and the card upgraded to a 660Ti in this?
You have space limitations in the 8300/8500 chassis that reduce the number of PSUs you can install, but YES, you can replace the power supply. You just need to be sure to depth of the PSU is the same. I know for a fact the Silverstone ST-60F fits as I have two in 8300s right here. As long as the PSU you like has the same depth as the ST-60F, it will work.
As far as video cards, there is a length limitation due to the hard drive mounting bracket/chassis member. In each of those 8300s I have a single ASUS DirectCU GTX570. It's not a clean fit, but I was able to slightly deform the chassis member to clear the power connections. This does, however, limit you to one hard drive.
