Been dealing with NCIX for years.

They play with the prices and I've canceled orders because of their nonsense.

Place a pre-order with them one night and get up the next morning to find the price dropped $50.

And no, they don't honor the price drop. I asked them to and they said no. So I canceled and bought elsewhere.

Why? It's pitted against a MSI GTX 980 Ti Gaming that boosts to 1400 Mhz and manages to trounce it by a healthy 20%. Can't wait to see what it can do with some quality custom love.

NCIX is probably the worst retailer for PC hardware in Canada, IME. I almost always avoid them if I can.

I haven't had any trouble with NCIX and I like their automatic price match function built in to their online checkout. On the other hand there is a Canada Computers within walking distance which may make it easier to sneak in some upgrades while the wife is out with the car. biggrin.gif

There is actualy a rather large performance gap in overwatch, was not expecting that. I have to turn settings down to high/medium on my 980ti to get about 100fps at 1440p while the 1080 is getting 120+ at max settings. It seems like the perfect single card solution for 1440p 144hz monitors, still cant justify upgrading to it atm.

i guess if the product is not out, then stay away from ncix.

Interesting! I love Overwatch btw! I'm at 1080p and using a wimpy 960 2gb on High averaging 100 fps at least. No AA if course.
