They are around the $400 mark.

Who are the rebates through? Some companies are better than others, like evga for example. Is it some off brander?

the one for 349 is evga and its a 20$ rebate so its 369. imo why buy from anyone else but evga anyway? even before rebates 369.99 is a great canadian price.

Is that newegg.ca or .com? The cheapest I see is around $350 on newegg.ca.

I've done 100's of rebates: EVGA, XFX, BFG, ASUS, Corsair, Paliat, Galaxy, etc... the only ones I've had problems with, other than long waiting times, is BFG, the 3rd party rebate company they were using went belly up last month. To BFG's credit they are re-issuing a cheque and are cover the extra charge for the inital bounced cheque.

And yeah, a number of 280gtx's are down around $350 now.

I'd hold off, the price is going to come down even more when the 285 launches next week.
