They're OoS there, but I was able to pricematch at memoryexpress.

Wow, I just read memoryexpress' pricematch policy and it's so much better now. It used to suck so much it was almost non-existent. Looks like I'm making more purchases there.

Mhm, they've definitely added more to their pricebeat policies. Should note that, because pc-canada was OoS, they didn't pricebeat it, but they did offer me a pricematch. At that price how could I say no? smile.gif

I'm on a budget of 450 dollars, and just want the most powerful card my money can buy to max out most if not all games out there now no problem.

The Zotac GTX 670 AMP! has some of the fastest out-of-box clock speeds among GTX 670 cards (without having to overclock it yourself). Unfortunately, it is rather expensive.

US: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814500267

Otherwise, it is a 3-way race between the Gigabyte Windforce, MSI Power Edition and EVGA FTW cards. BTW, the MSI card has an overvolting feature that allows users to break the 1.175 V barrier using MSI Afterburner software. I'm not sure how well it works since I don't have the MSI card. Also, the GTX 670 is already incredibly fast even without additional overclocking.
