Hehe yeah i tried getting a hercules but no one wants to part with them, imagine that lol, yeah i would prefer the sapphire off of new egg but i need to devise a plan with a american to send me the card, it would save me a lil money and i am a lil scared of a power color based on some of the horror stories, especially if i buy it from some random because then there is no insurance at all, what to do what to do?

Btw what is the difference between the power colour 9700pro evil commander 2 and the normal ati radeon 9700pro. As far as I can tell there isn't one? thought they don't say oem on them like the sapphires do :S (on newegg.com that is) hehe and if your still up to it roy im seriously considering that sapphire on new egg :D

only difference is the stability, the stock ATI card is more stable than the Powercolor one.

No prob. Air. Dan you figure it out and I will send it to you no problem.The good thing about newegg.com is you can pay from one place and have it shipped to another ,some sellers won`t do that. You buy have it shipped to me and I will ship to you.

Well actually getting this card has turned out to be a lil more effort then i had hoped and well after shipping and all i think the card would come to nearly $240 canadian, and well i dont think i want to spend that right now, so i think imma have to wait on either a better deal, or a used one or somthing, this really sucks but i don't know what else to do...

Any time you need shipping,I don`t care to help you out. It`s a shame when they cost more because you live outside the US. I`m sure a good deal will come up before to long.

Just wait till next gen midranges come out. They should perform well at a good price, or you could get a Rad 9800 Pro like Airman said for $329 (CDN).

I cant wait until the R420 and the R423 come out, What i heard is that the R420 will be the same core as the R423 but its AGP 8X edition, the R423 will be on PCI Express X16 or PCIEx 16X
