Unfortunately he wouldn't be able to order from there as the US egg doesn't ship to canada.

My own personal preference would be to avoid a Nvidia chipset board unless SLI is a requirement. I haven't had any issues with P965, P35, or P45 at all, while the 630i & 650i boards I've run haven't been anywhere near as easy to work with.

Well there is Newegg.ca! Also if he's not gonna use SLI a gigabyte board would be good. So re-done list

We won't hold that against ya! :rofl:

Welcome to the forums!

Nice template btw, it would be nice to up the vid card and cpu, but budget constraints... doh! There's got to be a way to squeeze in a 9800GTX+, the E7300 will oclock fine in a pinch. I think I would take the vid card rather than an E8xxx.

/edit: Oh, the HD is only 8mb cache, swap that with this:

NCIX.com - Buy Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 250GB SATA2 8.5MS 7200RPM 16MB Cache Hard Drive OEM 3YR MFR Warranty - ST3250410AS In Canada.

It's cheaper, has a 5 year warranty, and 16mb cache.
