Also I saw on Newegg they have the eVGA after discounts and MIR's the GTX260 at $299. THAT is where that card belongs. I bet it will be that soon here too.

My 4870 was $289 CDN. WOOT! Go exchange rate!

EVGA E-GEFORCE GTX 260 After Mail In Rebate: $305.99 CAD (+ $15 Next business day delivery)
That is the lowest priced 260 I found In Canada it is from (fully Canadian own) located in Vancouver BC.
Could not match the price locally in Toronto also locally I would have to pay extra 8% Ontario Provincial Sales tax.
You oil rich guys from Alberta don't have to worry about that. So quit complaining about the prices.

By the way if Newegg was shipping to Canada I would also have to pay the sales taxes they are collected at custom office on anything priced over $20.-
Canadian Sales Tax (GST) 5% plus 8% Ontario Sales Tax (PST) = Total 13% in sales taxes, aren't you guys from Alberta lucky paying only the 5%.
