How come the price is so inflated here at $936 when it should be $848. furthermore the non SC card is $829 for crying out loud. $100 CA for a slight factory OC? That you can just do yourself...

Currency converter shows that in USA it is $649 (SC version) and that translates to $848, why tack on almost $100. That is a rip-off.
Some of the other cards are more in line with pricing like the Gigabyte G1 gaming at $879.
And the EVGA non-SC at $829.

It is just not straight currency conversion.
Canadian retails is $899 for this version. Ncix is slightly higher by $37.

Right at this very second, the non-SC EVGA GTX 1080 is $901 before tax. It'll probably go back down to $829 in a few days like it did the last time the price jumped up.

It's important to note that MSRP is now a law, it's a suggestion from the manufacturer to retailers offering a ballpark price to start with, and then those retailers are free to adjust it as they see fit for whatever reasons they want. Supply and demand come into play. Consumer enthusiasm for cards labeled as "SC" or "FTW" or "Xtreme" is worth an extra 10% or more in cases like this.

Fortunately, as you mentioned, the overclocking on the SC card is something you can do yourself, rendering the SC version an unnecessary expense. It raises the question of why you'd care what the SC is selling for if you know it's not offering that much of a benefit, but that's a conversation you can have with someone else. For me, my non-SC version will get here when it gets here and then I can overclock it or not depending on whether or not I need the extra horsepower (I doubt I will for some time.)
