With the 8800GT out of stock in most retailers in Canada, notably NCIX.com this presents a problem. I have even heard that ordering directly from EVGA doesn't guarantee a fast and accurate ship date. Not to mention with the fluctuating dollar it would cost around $320 for this card shipped.
Which cards come close or are slated to be released this year that are of similar price?
The 3 new ati cards are coming out on the 19th. One more week. The latest rumors are that they'll be cheaper than nvidia cards with similar performances, & that the HD3870 beats out 8800GT in AMD's lab (new driver). Just rumors. Wait a bit. It's not like you can pick up any 8800GT this month.
