You can always get it from newegg.

EDIT: Eeewww

It's $319.99 on newegg.ca for the 2gb. there is no 1gb...

Go with the 4890 then.

Yup, the Cooler Master V8 also includes thermal paste.

Newegg.ca has plenty of HD 4890's in stock: Newegg - HD 4890

That'll work then. The 1gb one is cheap in the US. ($220 i think), but at that high aa price, the 4890 is a better deal.

Are you gonna overclock it?

It's good stuff.

Truthfully, all thermal pastes perform pretty much the same. You'll see an average temp difference of about 3 - 5C between them all.

The 4890 overclocks like crazy, so be sure you do
