Default Deal for Canadians

I was searching the sites today for Vista and stumbled across a deal on the 280gtx. At the gtx280, with FarCry2 included, is only $350 CAD. That is $300 off the regular price so i figured i would post it here for any fellow Canadians looking for a card as is.

Kind of made me a bit sour as i just ordered a gtx260 core216 a little more than 3 weeks ago for $330. Oh well that's the world of computers for you.

EDIT: Ya that is exactly what i was thinking. But I checked the price of the Evga gtx260 core216 and surprisingly it was $383. The BFG GTX295 was $649.99 so the 280's price makes good sense.

I should have mentioned the 280 on sale is BFG

Yeah, $350 is about the cheapest I've seen but a number of places have it reduced.

Just an FYI, there is a deals area: Buy/Sell/Trade and Hot Deals - Computer Forums for deals/sales/trades.
