That's a loaded question because it's not just about the wattage, and it's not just about brand names.

A quality 550W power supply is enough while a generic 550W is not.

Where can you order it from? How much can you spend on it?

those are the options
If you were to shop at Newegg, then your options wouldn't be this limited. I mean you are severely limited here.

Anyway, the best PSU on this list is the 850W NZXT HALE90. Now some people will tell me that the AX850 is better which is partly true in some respects. However, with PSUs of this caliber (these 2 units), we're splitting fine hairs.

I like the HALE90 because it's a very high quality unit and it has a unique pure white finish.

However, you could easily power this system with a quality 550W power supply. One example is the 550W Antec TruePower New.

The TR2 units are not good. I personally wouldn't trust them to power any system - especially not one as nice as yours is going to be.

You see, this is yet another reason to just pick out your parts using Newegg.ca or NCIX and then build it yourself. Like I said, even the 550W Antec TruePower New is enough!

http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product...82E16817371020 $79.99 shipped


Also, that motherboard is overkill. Here's the P8P67 Pro for $179.99 before shipping:

Firstly and Im shocked no one has mentioned this so far, if your looking at a 2500k it is dual chan memory so your choosing between 8gb and 4gb .....6gb is not an option.

The amount of ram isn't that important 4gb is enough 8gb doesn't cost much more and could be worth it depending on applications. what is important is the speed, Assuming you are only using it for gaming, buy 1600mhz ram do not pay extra for faster ram it will give you more or less 0 benefit.

as for the PSU is there really no option for something smaller a 800w psu in a single gpu system is completely impracticable and a total waste of money.

Water cooling, if you are not comfortable building your own pc which by the sounds of it your not then....just dont even think about it, you can get very similar results using a nice big air cooler with no need for the technical know-how and risk associated with water.

The 580 is a hot card like all high end gpu's especially Fermi but in a decent case it shouldn't cause you any issues.

Buying prebuilt will be costing you extra somewhere either in quality or just flat price.

You can go with as many different sites as it takes to get the lowest final cost.

You can use Newegg.ca, NCIX, or whatever other reputable online Canadian retailers exist (I can't remember any others). It can be a bit of work, but you will love your computer a whole lot more.

For example: you might have to use 3-4 different stores to get everything just to have the lowest final cost. It's worth it because not only will you love your computer a whole lot more like I said, but you'll also have absolutely no limit as to what you can buy. Having some outfit build your computer for you means you are extremely limited in your choices.
