You got that right...My friend owns a desktop computer from future shop, now, I don't want to explain how many hours it took me to reinstall his windows with the good drivers and all that stuff..
Of course on a normal system it would take like 30 mins, but ."FUTURE SHOP"...

I saw that they sell video cards there, so I thought I'd try. I need this card ASAP so I can confirm none of the parts I got DOA.

Yes....but how many sites were saying that the D8P was the new Ultra-High-End card from Nvidia? I can count more than ten but they ALL ended up picking up that rumor from Fudzilla.

Prices seem to have gone up to $300 at NCIX, but this PNY is now at Direct Canada for $238.00
PNY XLR8 GeForce 8800GT 600MHZ 512MB 1.8GHZ DDR3 PCI-E Dual DVI-I HDCP HDTV Out DIRECTX10 Video Card - DirectCanada

Mine's waiting at the purolator place still for me to pick it up - rats if I didn't have to work so much I'd have it -- of course if I worked less I wouldn't have it at all.

Hey everyone, first post, just registered. Read a lot of your reviews here and on NCIX Sky though.
I'm looking to maybe switch to a 8800GT from my ultimate x1950 pro, would cost me about 112$. Anyone know if PNY are generally good with warranties, service, etc.?
Thanks
