Everything will work well together. If you are the kind of person that likes to save money here and there on things then I would suggest getting a 2600k over a 2700k, 6950 2GB over a 6970 and 8GB vs 16GB. With those 3 changes you would save roughly $220 and see small performance difference, the biggest being the video card. Good choices and good luck!

The Purpose of the build :
I've been wanting to build my own computer for some time with a
budget of about $ 2000 give or take. I have a few parts but want to
build a gaming rig mostly for my son. We are building it together,
he plays Bf3, Skyrim and many others also my wife and I do quite a bit
of photo editing, video editing and plan on turning old Dell xps 3.4 gig p3
into home server.
We also want to play with hardware overclocking.
I have the powercooler first part to come from tiger direct.ca
its the PowerColor Radeon HD 6950 2GB GDDR5 PCIe 2.1
plan on doing bios update to 6970 hope to get a second card at a later date.
I am in the process of ordering the other parts but am limited to Canadian stores
shipping and such is too expensive otherwise. Looking at newegg.ca and a-power.com their taxes and shipping is considerably less than tiger direct.ca

pretty solid build mate.

Do check out www.directcanada.com. I use it all the time and they have great prices and great service. It's too bad hard drives had to get so darn expensive lately too. They have basically doubled in price! One thing I will tell you is that you might not want to flash your 6950 2GB to a 6970 bios unless it is a reference card with a backup bios. You can also just unlock the shaders on it and overclock it to 6970 clocks with MSI Afterburner like I did.

My cards aren't reference and this method worked perfectly: http://www.paulzor.com/blog/2011/08/03/howto-unlock-msi-r6950-twin-frozr-iioc-radeon-hd-6950-graphics-guide/. Also, if you want to play with cpu overclocking make sure you have a good cooler. I noticed you were thinking about the Silver Arrow and it would do just fine. Another option is the Corsair H80 or H100, great temps with those thumb.gif

I'd seriously recommend (almost to the point of begging) you go with a 2600k, the 2700k is just a 2600k that Intel OCed 100 MHz more. Seeing that 99.9% of all K chips can hit 4 GHz, the 100MHz boost says nothing of the stability of the chip at say 4.5GHz or more and instead you can pocket the $100 difference or whatever the difference is

I would say go with the 16GB as you never know when you need it and seeing how DDR3 prices are so cheap (at least here in the US) you can always just sell the ddr3 when say ddr4 comes out and the price of ddr3 skyrockets (look at the price of DDR2 now)

For a SSD, most people here would recommend an Intel 510, Crucial M4, Plextor M3 and Corsair Performance Pro because they all use the more reliable Marvell controller vs. the Sandforce gen 3 controllers which has had problems since it was introduced (they say it's all been fixed now, but I'd rather not trust my data to them... unless you back up your files)

Also, consider looking at NCIX? it's a very famous canadian company (they just entered the US market)
