Chances are they will drop in price as soon as the G92, G100 series come out next month is the rumor.

You could wait for a sale check the weekly specials every week for a few weeks or buy now and take your chances.... lol

True and it maybe a wise choice in case it does drop in a place in Ontario or Futureshop itself.

ncix has debit payment option. they will price match everything and you only have to pay PST on the order. so you could save yourself a bundle.

I would go with an SLI capable motherboard. You never know when you're going to get a craving for more power!

Ill check it out thankyou.

thanks for the suggestion.. i was tooling with the idea.. but like before, i bought all top end stuff motherboard ect last time, and the technology never got really used. I just dont want to waste my money when i want to upgrade 2 years later, and the motherboard doesnt support it.. does that make sense? or am i being stupid.

Well if you want your motherboard to still be decent 2 years from now, I would get the best one there is with the most upgrade paths. Otherwise, go cheap but don't get something that's caca and you'll regret buying it in 4 months from now because it's missing one or two little features.
