They are finally here, and the best part is I only paid 565 Canadian dollars for it :clap:

Fellow Canucks if you cannot get them local I suggest you buy direct from Evga and choose express shipping. You will be getting them cheap and fast. Will post impressions when I get home. This is gonna be a hard 4 hours for my to endure at work.

Congrads man. Make sure you peel off the evga sticker on the head of the fan to be safe. I also reccomend the 61.71 drivers. Get ready to lose sleep tonight...you'll be gaming till the wee hours of the morning =) And I agree evga's shipping is fantastic for the most part. I dont live in Can. but I received my card next day as paid for. Now i'm just patiently waiting for doom 3.

Does that $565 include the express shipping? With the currency conversion, it shows the 6800GT ($399.99) and express shipping ($53.95) coming out to ~$595 Canadian. Or did you do a price match?

$565 including everything. I split the express shipping cost with a buddy that's why.

It can fall off and jam the fan.

Congratulations! I just got off the phone with EVGA and they told me the UPS truck just picked up my 6800 GT card and I should receive it Wednesday. It's almost like Christmas hehe.
