$369 after MIR. I paid $357 after MIR for my second one. $380 with no MIR for my first one. $380 + 13% tax is $429.40. $399.99 + 13% tax - $30 MIR is $421.99 not include postage, envelope, etc.

How about his card? Seems to be an over clocking beast..

Newegg.ca - EVGA 012-P3-2068-KR GeForce GTX 560 Ti (Fermi) 448 Cores Classified 1280MB 320-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

It looks like it will be an awesome card from the HWC review, but if you have any plans to SLI then I would avoid it and go with the 570. The 448 cores will run out faster and be harder to get a second one down the road.

Second that^^. If you plan on SLi'ing with the 560Ti 448 Cores, get both cards now as they're a limited run, once they're gone you won't find any 448 Cores anymore.

If you still rather get one card now and thinking of SLi/Crossfire later then better to just get the 570 or AMD 6970.

As for going dual GPU, Nvidia SLi is the better choice over AMD Crossfire. For single card, AMD is solid.

The way AMD are handling the new games' drivers, I would get nothing but the GTX 560 ti 448 (EVGA CLassified), or the GTX 580 3 GB (Also EVGA CLassified). Too bad both cards are on limited quantities. Nothing compares to them.

7000s should be releasing in next month, I held off on crossfire, now I'm committed to waiting for their benchmarks

worst case ontario I can go ahead and CF with a 2nd hand 6950

edit:NCIX is too expensive, I never shop there, newegg and directcanada are my main stores lately

I picked up a 6950 this week to hold me over until the new cards are out then i'll toss this in my other computer.

I don't find ncix that expensive when I Price Match everything. They haven't denyed me one yet and I've placed like 6 orders in the last 2 months. Directcanada usually ends up being the one I use for the price match. newegg i find more expensive then NCIX for a lot of stuff.
