Use Ncix.com if you are in Canada, it's much better service wise, and the prices are often cheaper as well.

A whole 30$ cheaper, and unless your in BC, you will not get charged PST from ncix as it's out of province. The picture is wrong, but this is a BFG card.

That card IS a 6800GS and the OC means very little. Only good thing going for BFG is the warranty service they have and thats it. I would suggest maybe waiting for the 7800GS and/or buy a eVGA brand.

Exactly why does it seem better than the eVGA model? Dont be a noob and be fooled by the 50mhz OC on the core. Trust me the eVGA is cheaper.
