Default Gainward GTX 680 4 GB

This has just hit the shelves, but I don't think yet here in Canada, or the US for that matter. But, in any case, if it does make it to Canada, what Canadian online retailer is likely to carry it?

"Hit the shelves"..., sorry, wrong description. "officially released today" is what I meant.

Gainward officially rolls out GTX 680 Phantom 4GB

Looking around, some are saying the 4GB Gainward GTX 680 will be 600 Euros, or about $780 Canadian.

This one too, apparently.

Palit shows off GEFORCE GTX 680 JetStream, oh by the way, it sports 4GB of RAM :: TweakTown USA Edition

But, it's hard to get the 2 Gb, never mind these early 4 GB ones. I'm gonna wait a few months and see what happens... reviews and all.

4Gb is nice, but im more interested in the silent and more efficient coolers these monsters have. If only the Gainward warrant was better. Here's hoping for a non-ref cooling eVGA or similar card coming out soon.
