It has to be SLI ready as i would like to run an SLI setup a few months down the road. Also would prefer dual DVI. Not necessary, however it would be a bonus. some of the graphics cards i'm considering are Galaxy GeForce GTX 550 Ti GC Edition (can anyone tell me what GC means?)

I found a 189 with rebait ... http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... This is US Dollars but I looked up the conversion and our dollars are almost the same or 1 to .99.. I would really recommend you wait the 3 weeks or so till the 600 series is out as the 650 will be the same as the 560 but much cheaper and also the 500 series prices should go down a bit... Your call. Thent Kempen17 March 8, 2012 4:26:55 PM my current monitor is 1680x1050. not sure if that's good or not. i've been looking at getting a new one, or just buying a second one of these. and thanks for the link, i'll look into it. and yeah i might wait it out too.

A single 6870 @ 1680x1050 should do quite well. EDIT: Better pricing on this one: http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applications/SearchTools/item...

I believe that buying this card was a mistake. I am waiting for Kepler and saving my money for a new one. As an earlier post said. Don't go below the 560. This is assuming that you are needing your maching for gaming and such.. maxinexus a b U Graphics card March 8, 2012 6:29:31 PM wait till kepler...if you can't wait get 6850 or 6870. stay away from 550Ti or 560...560Ti is great at US$189.99 but wait man you won't regret it.
