As you know, Canada like Australia, pay a premium for hardware compared to the USA.   At the $120 mark you are getting an entry level GPU, it will improve your game performance but only at medium settings.   Also given your 430w PSU, 34 amps on the 12v rail, some caution needed with the GPU power draw. > http://www.evga.com/...=100-W1-0430-KR
