Eh I picked credit card payment and entered my TD Canada Trust Visa/Debit bank card for my order last night. Was this the wrong thing to do? My order was taken but no money taken out of the account like it happens with other things I buy. I was trying to choose the fastest option and my usual way was not as quick as this. :Z Anyone use Visa/Debit bank card recently at NCIX and can enlighten me?
Nothing was taken out of my account yet either. Not even a pending charge.

No one here concerned that even though NCIX is allowing purchase online on 12/25 and 12/26, many of the MIR's are not valid until December 26 onwards?

Just incase the MIR's do work because of the invoice date, or buyer's remorse, can we return without any re-stocking fee within the holiday period (I think until mid January IIRC for items purchased in December) back to the local store if we did in store pickup?

probably QTY for $179.99 is all gone
NCIX only set certain QTY for sale price, not all

this seems like a good buy: http://www.ncix.com/products/?sku=85445&promoid=1051

was wanting a 7950/70 but prices kept up

thoughts?
Excellent card. I'm debating between this MSI and the Gigabyte (http://products.ncix.com/detail/gigabyt ... 7-1051.htm). After rebate on the MSI, they come out to the same price. Both overclock very well.

NCIX is holding back on deeper discounts for these GTX cards...I expected to see some 760's in the $200 range.

I too am deciding between the two.

It would appear that the MSi brand is less power hungry?

I went with the gigabyte one. Their RMA Centre is in California. MSIs is in Markham if that matters.

Can both of these be comfortably clocked beyond factory OC? And what sort of performance could I expect to see if I overclocked beyond factory?

I believe you're correct; the MSI uses much less power in all states, even full load. MSI definitely uses better material, and although it only has two fans vs Gigabyte's 3 fans, its runs much cooler as well with the Twin Frozr design. Might be worth the premium price (before MIR) for these factors, and the RMA info that darkspider mentioned.

I would look online for user feedback on overclocking statistics and such. For the Gigabyte their OC Guru tool, there's potential for decent overclocking capabilitieshttp://www.gigabyte.com/products/produc ... id=4663#ov
