has 9800 PROs for $405 CDN...

But I'd look to ebay if I were you. Even if it's a bad card you can get it warrantied, and you'll save mucho $$$.

<A HREF="http://www.anitec.ca" target="_new">anitec</A> has Sapphire 9800pro 349 canadian. Call them, and negotiate for the price, they always lower at least 5% for me.

Anitec also has a Built By ATI 9800 Pro retail for $385. I too wish though that I could purchase one of the cheap saphire 9800 Pros from the states though since no wheres in Canada did we get the same price cut that the states got.

hummm. 222$US will cost you more than 310$ can..It is a quick exchange I did. Ask you bank for real exchange rate. then you have to pay shipping.

you can find good stuff to at www.tigerdirect.ca

I got $296.13 when I converted $222US using the currency converter site. But even $310 Canadian is a savings of almost $50 when compared to the cheapest 9800 Pro you can find in Canada. Tigerdirect.ca is actually a little more expensive then the local stores where I am. Cheapest 9800 Pro on tigerdirect is an VisionTek Xtasy one for $384.99.

Wow, I didn't realized our online stores wouldn't ship to Canada. I always see on my hardware receipts - not for export out of USA or Canada, so I figured you could all buy there too. No newegg, zipzoomfly, ewiz, gameve, etc. Bummer!

I also feel sorry for you if TigerDirect.Ca is anything like out TigerDirect.com. Years ago I used to buy hardware from them, but they have become a questionable/borderline shady company to deal with. I avoid them nowadays. Also their tech support people are clueless. Back a few years ago when the 440BX mobos first came out, I ordered a barebones kit from them. Soyo motherboard, case, and a celeron 333. Thing is, the motherboard did not come with the propper SEPP retension mechanism. It came only with a PII SECC one. I called them up and they had no clue how to install the processor. After 2 phonecalls and being on hold forever, a supervisor told me " it doesn't need any retension mechanism, just stick the CPU in the slot." After correcting him, he insisted that that is how they do it. Yeah right. Anyway, I had to spend like $15 to get one from somewhere else and it delayed my build over a week. My problem was solved, but how many other people bought that kit? Did they give them the same advice/instructions? That's one of many reasons I avoid them now. Hope the Canadian division is better.

I've had good luck with tigerdirect.ca but never had to return anything, I would agree that they do not have the best prices...dangeo.com seems to have very competitive pricing....I've also purchased a few computer parts from ebay.com (or ebay.ca), if you are using ebay.com, just make sure they will ship to Canada, even if it says they won't, e-mail them to check.

I think directron.com (a US company) will ship to Canada...

as far as Canadian sites go, I think they have all been mentioned here already

Just checked anitec.com and they are showing the Sapphire 9800Pro for $299.95CAD...that is a great price for that card. They also have a Sapphire 9600XT for $209.95CAD, also a really good price.

Beat me to it. If you have a good friend who is chinese, they usually can get a better price. Hope that doesn't sound racist, but I have seen signs in chinese that offer a discount.
