No I won't disagree with you there. The CX series is budget, with cheaper caps (some Chinese) and although is still a good unit, doing two 570's would break something.

Single 670 you'd be laughing,

Those are great prices - if either place had any stock. You can advertsie gold bullion for $1 a bar if you don't have any. I hate places that do that.

What he is meaning by his comment isnt that they had 'stock', its that they have plentiful stock.

I can win the lottery any week, doesnt mean I'm rich.

I wasn't really thinking about buying from them, as I don't know anything about either company. I was just trying to get a good price match with NCIX. They couldn't match their offer, instead they tried to give me a $6 discount... Thanks NCIX, I really needed those $6 for lunch tomorrow.

I suspect that it's a refurb, one of the places that they show beating the price of is this one:

PC CANADA - ASUS GTX670-DC2-2GD5 GTX 670 PCI-E 3.0 2GB-GDDR5 256-BIT *** REFURBISHED *** [GTX670-DC2-2GD5] - The Original and Highly Rated All-Canadian WebStore
