yeah XD i like ncix, just wish they were a bit cheaper. im payin at least 500-800$ extra for no reason >.> beggars can't be choosers i suppose. And tigerdirect is usually more expensive than anyone >< but every now and again you might find something they have a good deal on.

I just purchased the 8800 ultra from ncix.
My total was $605 after next day shipping...not bad at all IMO

what O.O thats killer -.- im getting the xfx 8800gtx extreme on the 24th and itll be the same price >< the ultra is 650 now ;p unlucky timing on my part lol. but back on topic

the 320GTS is a great card, will do what you want it to do and its cheap. scratch the dell and build a pc from ncix (since your in canada) youll get pretty good deals, fast shipping good service and a pc that would crush a dell that you'd buy for the same price.

its just a pre-overclocked regular GTX

hm? Simple its 50$ cheaper than the regular with the mail in rebait.
regular 624$
extreme 574$

only cause the regular doesn't have the 50$ mail in. Just because it's pre-overclocked shouldn't decrease the overall performance of the card in the long run >.> as for heat i'll be building a nice water cooling loop soon.
