It's because the Vermont State Quarters are so beautiful that no one is willing to spend them.

My two cents....Ballistix 6400 RAM, I had issues with my OCZ rev2 6400 platinums and got a cold shoulder from OCZ regarding the customer care problems i had. Everyone pointed fingers elsewhere.

As for NCIX, you have account with them? Best Canadian place to buy from I find. Unless you have preferred pricing make sure to use their price match feature as their prices aren't always the best. but they will price match no questions asked.
