I jsut received my 6800nu, and was going to return it for the 6800GT but I don't think I'll be doing that anymore. I just had to pay the Canadian Gov and UPS $120can in brokerage fees and taxes.

cuz value was more then 50.00 thats why, Happened to me when i shipped a card too canada to a online firend. Cost me 60.00 extra though.

Also wasnt marked as Gift. Of course it wouldnt from a retailer.

So for future shippings, Mark value as 50.00 and as Gift. Youll bypass all taxes and fees. Just a tip if u need to ship to someone in Canada from US.

Instead of returning it just sell it?

That is grossly unjustified. 50% of the freaking value?

Wow that sux, a word of advice next time you use UPS to ship from states use Express or Expedited. This way you don't pay any brokerage fees. I ordered 2 GTs from EVGA using Express. Total comes to 1130 for 2 cards. That's only $565 CAD for each card and I wasn't even charged tax so that's all I paid. You can't beat that.

The exact same thing happened to me. I ordered a 6800NU from EVGA, it took a week and a half to arrive, and I was forced to pay $120, with the alternative of wrestling the beefy UPS guy to get my new graphics card.

Another Canadian learns the hard way ... :(

Yeah, that's a good idea. :rolleyes:

Break some laws so some guy in Canada can cheat his government out of their taxes.

i'd rather cheat the gov't out of their ridiculous taxes than pay them.
