I dunno, getting three $50 games included for $534 plus tax isn't bad...

Seriously though, pre-tax prices are utterly useless and I don't know why people from both sides decide to wave around prices without ever taking other variables into account.
it totals to 537$ shipped in quebec....

guys, people going for the top expensive cards are needed to increase the company's reputation, stock holder's confidence, and so on.

forget that nice ride you wanted to get, get the 580! :)


seriously..if it wasnt for the upcoming release, and the bashing price wise of the 68's we might have seen worse prices.

Check out the Quad SLi 580 Drama over at Evga forums.....this ole cat (Falcon) spent a ton of $$$ only to run into a snag....he's the Quad SLi guinea Pig!!

4x SLI 580 Black OPs Edition in SR-2 causes the Nvidia driver to crash I am totally bummed

I'm actually seriously considering phoning NCIX Monday AM and canceling my order ;)

The EVGA forums exist in a parallel universe where everyone is rich, lives at home with their mama, and whines louder than the blower fans on their quad-sli setups.

I agree - reading that forum is painful.

He bought them for a fun filled weekend of benching. Now he's saying that NV and EVGA let him down. I guess he thought that for $2300, he'd at least be able to have a sausage party haha

^^^^ Actually I've seen Falcons "Box Opening" You Tube videos....he's anything but a "kid"....actually looks a little older than myself ...maybe in his mid 50's...his wife does the video recording ;)

Seems they found the problem...SLi Bridge on backwards.

btw...no one goes Quad SLi for gaming........duh,,, :)
