And that's not all. The EVGA GeForce GTX 260 graphics card also supports extreme HD (2560x1600) resolutions, and gives your system the power of up to 196 multi-threaded processor cores, offloading the most intensive processing tasks from your CPU to your Graphics Processing Unit (GPU).

I am in the same situation but deciding between a XFX 4870 1G at $225 using rebate at tigerdirect.ca with $4 shipping or the EVGA 260 GTX at ncix.ca for my brother I am from too Canada. If you are leaning towards the 4870 get the xfx has I think it has the double lifetime warrenty, so better resell value I would contact the company to make sure and it has the fan blower cooling solution to blow hot air out. If I get the 260 GTX I would try to overclock it to exact specs as the OC version. EVGA also has a lifetime warrenty and the card does a bit better if your able to overclock.
