I am going for a custom built PC with SLI (2 cards) At first I wanted the GT 512 because it's cheaper but I also want the GTS 512 because it's slightly more powerful and operates much cooler and more quiet. I don't know anymore!!!
So far on retail, the cheapest GT 512 I've seen is 300 CAD and cheapest GTS 512 is about 400 CAD.

Links do not work anymore. I am also planning to buy a new card because I have a 8600 GT.
Go with your hearts desire, it's Christmas. I should have bought something nice for myself, but I spend 300$ trying to win ski-doo tundra and I lost. Do not let this happen to you and buy something nice you can all enjoy.
I would go with that EVGA 8800GT and then step up in February (hopefully when the 9800 is release) and just pay the difference.
