Well right now there is an HIS HD4870 for $269.99 at ncix: http://www.ncix.com/products/index.p...S&promoid=1015

A Diamond 4870 for $268 at Direct canada: http://www.directcanada.com/products...acture=DIAMOND

Vanilla evga gtx260 at ncix is $269 according to pricecanada on ncix: http://www.ncix.com/products/index.p...4&promoid=1015 however it says price too low to display.

Generally speaking the 4870 is cheaper and has been since launch. SKYMTL even made that clear in his review "the GTX 260 still seems to be partially handicapped by its price. On average it retails for a good 10-20% more (before those pesky mail in rebates) than the competing HD4870..."
