Well, you're definately wrong. You see, Canada uses a different curreny than the United States. I thought I'd point that out becuase apparently you didn't know that. Canadian prices are slightly different because of that. I didn't think I'd have to actually state that the NCIX prices are in Canadian because it's a Canadian site. The link you just game me was to the US version of TigerDirect. Here is the same card, only the Canadian version. You can tell because of the little Canadian flag in the top banner.

http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applicatio...755110&CatId=0

Look at that, almost $100 more dollars. I don't wanna be an *******, only thing is that you treat everyone like crap and pretend you know everything. If you didn't come accross so arrogant there wouldn't be an issue.

dude get the BFG one. BFG has the lifetime warranty and they're tech support service is ROCK SOLID. They handle RMA's very quickly too, I only do business with BFG in terms of video cards because they are also factory overclocked and run really well.

Go for the BFG

if you goto newegg.com and check out the reviews on the pcie 6800gs card youll notice how a lot of people are not getting power cords with it.

I myself didn't get one with either of the two I bought for my sli setup.

It ****ed me off seeing as how compusa didnt have and pcie power cords. EVGA took their time with my request also. Bad support, took 3 days to respond, 3 days to ship, 5 days to get here. Total of 11 days to get here... way too long.

maybe its just me. heh

7800GS is like on the brink of coming out. Id say 2 weeks TOPS. And why is eVGA so exspensive in Canada? Sorry bout the Tigerdirect thing, i thought it was one price for all of them and you had a choice to ship to Canada. Also to Forchunet did you get them when they first came out?
