Default New 8800GT out in Canada?

I called Futureshop and went to Canada Computers but they said they dont have it. When will it be available here?

frontierpc is bringing 3 x EVGA superclocked ones into store today, on my behalf. Selling for a little more than NCIX, but at least there will be stock on hand. $275, still an awesome deal.

Ordered a HD2900GT the other day and it has not been shipped from NCIX yet. I am trying to cancel my order but they seem to be hard to get hold of. Gotta get the 8800, seems to good to be true (until the next best thing comes along)

Well, you've seen the benches and I have had ZERO contact with Nvidia so they aren't cooked up by any means.

I'll probably end up getting the XFX one at 250$ , I mean the 256 one will be cheaper but i want to be able to play my games 1280x1024 if i can :P so yeah I mean the rest of my rig will cost me around 550$ shipped and I'll be selling my Rig for 600$ soon :P . I probably wont have a case tough , but I mean I prefer a 8800GT over a case :D

Ordered one a few hours ago, I really need it to make sure my rig works.Anyone know how accurate that Stock check from NCIX is? I assume once it sells out no one else will be able to purchase it through the site.

Did he just said Futureshop lol?

Sorry m8 but Futureshop for high-end computer hardware is not the place to look for. Hell, i wouldn't even buy a low end computer from them.
