169 canadian buckeroos?

its a decent enough card m8...

you might consider paying a tiny bit more and buying a radeon 9500 or 9500pro which are supposed to be in a quite similar price bracket... they are the cheapest nextgen vid cards with dx9 support and the pro outperforms all competing cards other than the 9700 and 9700pro...

you can also buy an nvidia 4200 for a similar performance.. ati looks nicer/nvidia gives you a few more frames per second in games...

if I were you I would wait for a bit...

and sorry I dunno canadian prices for the cards :) but should scale like they do in the us a little...

i suppose $170 canadian is good... but a gf4 ti4200 will be a little faster, though i don't know how much canadian it'd be.

that is about 500 canadian for the gforce 4 ti4200
no way... it's $340 on that same site... i'm sure it can be found cheaper if i knew of other canadian stores.

but probly not near the $170 you can get that 8500le for... so i'd say go for that.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
