The prices are higher cause there canadian. lol
I cant afford the 3850 though. Thats why im going with the 8600 GTS.
ATI HD 3850s are going for $179 on www.ncix.com right now. They eat 8600GTS for breakfast. I mean like 30-50% more frames per second. The 8600 is really not a good investment of your money at this point in time espescially if your looking for around $165 for the card.
also comes with valve's blackbox
