It's even on the lower side for a brand new card. That's why I said I'd consider that cheap
My bum is still sore from paying $769CAD for an 8800GTX at launch. The past 4 cards I've purchased have been at launch and I haven't been disappointed with any of them.
8800GTX at launch
4870 1GB (preordered a 1gb model while using a 512mb loaner from the local store)
5850 at launch
6970 on launch day (I particularly liked this one as prices haven't dropped significantly in a year)
Honestly I'm probably gonna grab a 7970 on the 9th...but since I use a single monitor, I may wait to see what NV has got for us....and I'm also betting on an AMD product with 2304 shaders getting launched the day that nV launches their new "high end" part.
