Getting better. I wonder if the strong US dollar is bumping it up a bit though.

I ordered one also.

Hope they won't pull the ''in stock ''Yes'' when you order it, but switch to ''No'' and let you stuck at the shipping soon message for 2 weeks'' trick, like they did to me a couple of times in the last months...

Edit: just shipped!

And I just noticed that the price for the HIS was bumped back to 609$ cdn... Internet providers are playing Ping-pong with the prices, even in a matter of hours only...

IMO, if you live in Montreal there is no better shipping company than Purolator.

SKY, even if you are in Ottawa there is no better shipping company better than Purolator. I've ordered countless times from NCIX and most times they ship Purolator. Me and the Purolator delivery guy are on a first name basis.

Tell me about it. I chose the Express Shipping option, and NCIX shipped using UPS, which lost my GTX280 in Vancouver Monday afternoon. They still haven't found it. Now I have to wait 8 days for the claim... but on the good news side, NCIX will eventually allow the buyer to choose his courier of choice, even with the Express Shipping option.

Again - I hate them with a passion.

Fortunately, if you order from DC and use the 9.99$ special, it's always Purolator.

Well odd, I've used Purolator, Fedex, UPS and Canada Post all at least 3-4 times from NCIX, and I've never had problems with any of them. Honestly, I've had trouble with Purolator 2 times, both times, I missed the delivery, call them to re-deliver, they promise you a day and hour to show up, and they never show up. And when you call customer service you get told it wasn't flexible for the driver, hek at least let me know, I won't bite you guys.
