Question $475CAD for EVGA 7800Gt/Mobo, Good Deal?

I was just wondering if it is worth going for this deal. I mean its like getting the mobo for around 20 bucks, but is that motherboard any good? Is there any problems with it?

Heres the link

475CAD would be 400 USD? for a 7800GT rip off? i mean a 7800GT is only 300 USD here

but that mobo is a piece of crap

Hey thanks Pzerofgh, You are in my opinion one of the most helpful people on this forum.

And I kinda agree with you. I researched that mobo a bit more and eventualy found a review and it did pretty bad.
The one thing is that videocards are way more expensive here. A 7800 Gt goes for like $417CAD which is like 360USD. I think I might order from newegg.com and get it shipped to my uncle in Washington.
I have one more question. Why is the cheapest Evga 7800Gt on newegg have the highest memory clock? (1100mhz as aposed to 1070mhz)

Well their are deals and stuff, core speed, heatsink type, etc.
