nice Skymtl. I hadn't noticed your charity. very worthy.

I would personally challenge everyone to take a CPR course
New guidlines include how to use the AED.

Save a life even if you don't need new GPUs.

we would if they were free, I was CPR certified for 2 years, a long time ago.
And btw, (just to clear the confusion) you don't save the life when performing CPR, you just preserve it! Doctors are the ones saving lives!

Wow, didn't expect the 7970 Lightning price to be so high, especially with no warranty...

High? Price right now at retail is $520USD + 15% tax = ~$595 + say $15 shipping = $610.

That being said, there IS a typo. It should read $450 shipped.

Who pays for shipping these days?
I expected a $400 price point to be honest, at that point, I would have pounced on it.

The Gigabyte card's buyer backed out. It is back for anyone interested. :)

Everyone pays for shipping in some way.

And of course you would have pounced on it but anything under $440 and I'd rather keep it.

Some examples of this card:

Newegg @ $529 + tax + $13 shipping: $621 total
NCIX @ $632 + tax + $18 shipping: $745 total

I honestly can't find it anywhere else. IMO, at $450 shipped, it is be best deal you'll find and as others will tell you, while I don't allow for a warranty, I'm more than willing to pull some strings to ensure any issues get resolved in the first few months of use.

Maybe I have things wrong, but don't you get these things for free? If not, then I understand your pricing, I just always thought you got these for free from the manufacturer to test/review.

And I'm just saying in my case, I haven't paid to ship anything in forever since NCIX opened up locations in the GTA.
