I wouldn't buy from the US, with shipping and duty you'd get it in Canada cheaper on sale.

HST is a real biotch but just as example, I did some calculating and if I bought the GTX260 I wanted from EVGA I would save around $30 when compared to NCIX or Newegg.

EVGA doesn't charge tax so you pay the price you see plus shipping. If you have an account to all 3 places give it a try and do a quick price check.

If EVGA doesn't appeal to you, nor are they in stock, I'm gonna suggest PNY. They have been really good to me as of recent.

Had an issue with an NV4_Disp BSOD running my GTX465. Got a lot of very good Tech Support with the support tech helping me through the game settings and card. In the end, I came to a good resolution (Games issue, not the Cards) but he really went above and beyond. Also worthy of note he told me that if at any point in time I couldn't seem to resolve my issue he'd get the RMA for me right away if I wasn't satisfied.

Thats good CS as far as I'm concerned.

I second getting the 1 GB 460 model. I also think it has more cuda cores so it will not only perform better in games/media/benches but will also fold better. Im going to get two 460 1 GB for sli action.
