your right, but if you plan to upgrade to a dx10 card next year it might be worthwhile, some of the new cards are rumored to consume 250-300Watts :O but the 500 otherwise is a great psu and is sli certified so even if you add a second drive and second card you'd be safe.

I'm Canadian as well and I can tell you its hard to find good prices. Heres some local canadian stores I know that ship and have the best prices in Canada.

www.fanspc.ca
www.canadacomputers.ca
www.pcgatecomputer.ca
www.ncix.ca
www.tigerdirect.ca

Fanspc is the best in my opinion.

It's not a matter of "need"....it's the fact that the 600 is just a better unit all around, and if you ask me...is worth the extra bit.

I've got it, and I'd say it's the one part of my computer that I will not be upgrading for a LONG time...cause it's just soooo solid.

Plus, it's not that much more...for a lot more "wiggle room"

G.skill: 4-4-4-12 @2.0-2.1V DDR2-800

Team: 4-4-4-10 @1.8-1.9V DDR2-800

I think the team will do better, but go for what you like.

This is the overclocked version of the team version above.

Note: It runs at 2.2-2.35V with 3-3-3-8 @ DDR2-800. These are also .3V higher voltage than the cheaper ones above.

ok, lets say i were to buy from them... i really like their prices.. id have to pay shipping.. plus what else once it crosses the border? the E6600 goes for 329 which sounds fair.. its about 360ish CAN, local stores here can charge up to 460...
