Right now directcanada.com has them on for 169.99 after MIR.
I like this idea....maybe because i already placed my order with them....

Hey, guys, thanx for the info.

Wow!! this makes it harder - one 8800GTX or 2 9600GT

I had a good experience with XFX, which is why I am concidering the two XFX 9600GT in SLI, but the 8800GTX by MSI is a nice price.

What about service and support? MSI dosen't seem as quality as XFX. Any positive experiences with MSI?

i think msi has only a 3 year warranty..and you should really avoid sli imo.
just get the gts 92 instead...

more money better performance
8800 gt is better than 9600 gt, 2 9600 gt is better than 1 8800 gt. i would go with 2 9600 gt actually, i dont trust the 8800s.
