Default hold on

Id hold on for a bit. Im not fan of SLI and think youd be better off buying a very powerful singlecard for around $400

Unless you have a 24" monitor or bigger your not gonna see that much of an increase in games playability.

Are you doing the MIR?

I almost ordered the Galaxy, but the rebate PDF said it was only payable to US customers (and only for ncix), so rather than potentially wasting my time arguing about the rebate, I ended up just ordering a BFG card instead.

The rebate is for Canadians, I just read the TERMS & CONDITIONS and it reads Offer only valid in
Canada. Rebate Payable in Canadian Dollars for Canadian Residents.
So yes I would buy one for sure, if I needed one.
