Haha I think I just ninja'd you or you forgot to read my post. ZING! Ugh...I think I need to head to bed soon. I think I'm running dry of energy from waiting by the phone all day for a call about a job offer... nothing yet.

But eyah read my previous post, I think it sums it up pretty decently.

Haha. I remember watching The Weather Network yesterday and the satellite view showed that Canada was completely covered under clouds. Must've been snowing everywhere Friday.

Topic = derailed.

I like eVGA. The only serious cards I've had from them have been great (cards before that were ones I had no choice about, basically).

Either company is great, though.

Evga I had a 9800GTX+ and smoke pored out of it, because I am going to school for graphics work I had to have a video card so I went to EVGA told them about the problem that I couldn't RMA it because it would leave me with out a video card for an extended period of time ,because they are in the US. So basically after talking with the Marketing Director he basically got NCIX (the place where I got the 9800GTX+) to do a cross ship RMA (it was past the NCIX RMA date) on the card that was nice in it's self. But here is the best part NCIX didn't have any 9800GTX+ around by EVGA around (there was a sale or something) so I went back to EVGA told them what was up, and thay got NCIX to send an GTX260 core 216 instead. I just had to cover the difference, then I was credited back with the price of the 9800GTX+.....dont know if I should be saying that because EVGA normally don't do it or so I was told by them but oh well.

NCIX credit invoice for proof is attached waiting on NCIX for the cross ship invoice once I get it (if they will) I will post it.

Yup EVGA is the way to go personally. There CS is top notch and plus you get a 90 step-up program. I believe there are some new cards coming in that 90 step-up
