Windows? Keyboard? Mouse? Obviously we can't get a monitor in there.

For this price and for what you want it for the i3-2100 from Intel would be a better choice than anything from AMD.

USB 3 for the mobo? How about SATA III (6 gbps)?

You didn't include shipping which usually kills newegg.ca.

Even using newegg.ca I can find a much better deal.

i3-2100 + H61 for $185 before shipping. That's $15 more than the CPU/motherboard you suggested and is far superior in performance.
