AFAIK Gainward is an EU/Australia only company, we won't be seeing them in Canada.

Shame. Point still stands about wanting more non-ref cooling 680's though. Oh how I'm patient for my tax return money to come in, haha.

I haven't seen a lot of this so called 'bashing' on AMD adopting 3GB, so long as the BUS and architecture can handle it.

What I hope for on the 4GB cards is a better showing than the poor implimentation the 580's and 3GB had...

If it's €600 it will be about $600, prices are bloated on this side of the pond.

Check out overclockers.co.uk for a comparison of prices over here..
it's where I buy most my stuff and is reasonably cheap (not the cheapest but close and great customer service)

As for 3 and 4 GB cards... only relevant at uber high resolutions.. I personally think amd (or a board partner) should do a 1.5 GB version at a slightly lower price-point.
