Start with building your first puter, then go to WC'ing.

You can also go to memoryexpress.com, they have price matching and they are Canadian. There's also NCIX you can look into.

PS. The FT02 from Silverstone is awesome for aircooling. It'll do the job fantastically to kool your components off. It also has sound insulation to reduce any noise. I also included a fan controller so you can tone everything Down.

and ya you want a 3D monitor change the Cabinet to CM HAF 912 @ 64.99$ and go with the BenQ XL2420T @ 419.99$ and a H70 @ 80.99$for cooling that makes it a perfect 3000.87$ i guess shipped 480
and if you are a NVIDIA fanboy then go with 2xGTX580 here
480
but u got to sacrifice on the performance if u go with 2xGTX 580
here have a look
470
470
470
470
470
and keep in mind the 7970 also supports 3D viewing thumb.gif you can clearly see the 7970 power consumption levels are also lower then the GTX 580 but it yields better results:thumb:

steelseries roughHD mousepad

works awesome with all mice, big one comes with a cleaning rag. looks good too.

nvidia is better than ati.

best performance / cost right now is
gtx 560 2gb (for high res)
gtx 560ti 448 core
gtx 570
gtx 570 HD 2.5gb (again high res/surround)
gtx 580
gtx 580 3gb

for certain games max memory can be an issue, especially at higher resolutions. keep this in mind when deciding which cards to get, it doesnt add the memory, it uses the max from one card. anything it cant fit into your cards memory gets dumped into your ram or paging file or something, i dont remember, but its not good.

if you plan to game on one 1080p monitor then a single gtx 580 3gb will crush anything you throw at it. a 580 1.5 gb or 570hd would likely be more than enough, or sli them for moar fun. either of these in sli should max battlefield 3 > 60fps, possible the 580s would be a bit short on memory.

imo sli 580 3gb is overkill since sli 570HD will pretty much max everything except benching/3d vision/surround.

Well I got a call back from ibuypower. & since it's already shipped and almost here they can't quit "Cancel" just yet.
But all I have to do is refuse the parcel & it will be re-sent to them and from then they can re-bill my credit card , So that puts me back 10-14 days... Unless I put it on another Credit Card...
What I hate about this thou is that the damn thing will be right under my nose... Let's hope the box doesn't give me the puppy eyes... 0.o
I'll only have to pay the 109$ I paid in shipping at ibuypower in the first place! quite a relief from a what I thought was 3020$ and had an additional 500$ at your door!

So now I'm back in the decision phase frown.gif options to choose and things to be done. I'm def. bookmarking this thread so that if tomorow or the day after that or maybe when the card clears that I can come back here and ask questions and take them beautiful ideas smile.gif
