I did. It was in my original post. I'm looking for something around $1200 canadian mark. So that's like $1100 USD. Although I can be flexible if the performance is justifiable.

Here's a nice little gaming setup

2x250gig seagate 7200.10 for RAID0 instead of a single drive, and a gts 320mb, but its evga, so you can always step up to a gtx or something later

Ok so I think I've got some things covered now. Let me know what you guys think about this setup.

CPU = E6600
Cooling = Zalman CNPS9500
Mobo = Gigabyte GA965P-DS3 OR Asus P5N32-E 650i
RAM = G.Skill 2Gb PC6400 HZ
PSU = Enermax Liberty 620W
Gfx = BFG 8800 GTS OC2
HDD = somewhat undecided here but not a big deal
Case = still haven't found anything I really like
