That looks pretty slick.

Maybe save a little cash (~60 CAD each) by going with 8800GS's over the GT's? I can't imagine that the ppd is drastically different.


Sorry for no source, found it at NCIX. Apparently it is from someone at AtomicPC.

For that price we should be able to get (4) 8800GTS G92 cards from somewhere. I know we're talking Canadian $$'s but they should be around $150 US

Other than that I'm good with everything else (and I'm fine with those Gigabyte cards if that's a good deal for north of the border).

I think we can get away with an e2160 or even an e1200.

Ok, I edited the original list, now includes an e2160 instead of an e2180. This shaved $20 off the price. Now we could save some more money on the cards if we can buy from Newegg. Look at the difference in price.

(1) Canadadirect = $739.49 + shipping (4 gigabyte 8800gt)

(2) Newegg = $479.96 + shipping (4 gigabyte 8800gt) The link is below.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814125088

So you see, it would be worth our time to find an alternate shipping method for the cards!

Maybe ask Duke, since he's close to Canada, to receive them/drive across the border & then ship them to their final destination? It would have to be cheaper than trying to send them thru a US carrier.

That would, of course, depend upon his availability.

Oh, c'mon take one for the team

Do they really look for things like that along the Detroit border? I've only gone through International Falls a dozen times or something & they only cared about tobacco, firearms & liquor lol... Coming back is a different story though as we had to empty all of our coolers to be certain we aren't taking more than our share of Walleye

Sorry I didn't mean to put you on the spot tho

I've been across the boarder many times, you never know when the will go on a nut and screw with you!
Once they wanted to tear my car apart because I went 6MPH over the speed limit on the Blue Water Bridge! I told them 'Fine, go for it and wast your time' so they still made me open everything but my First Aid kit, looked under the hood, seats, trunk, etc... Shows you how lame they can bem the kit could of been full of just about anything

(1) MSI P6N diamond 680i Mobo
http://www.directcanada.com/products...anufacture=MSI -unavailable at DirectCanada
http://www.antonline.com/p_P6N%20DIAMOND-GP_312775.htm -$175.13 + $11.54 shipping
I would like to find a Canadian retailer if possible. (Deskjockey said he could help us out other wise)
(2) E2160 CPU
http://www.directcanada.com/products...ufacture=INTEL -$68.09 + $9.99 shipping
(3) 2GB OCZ 6400 RAM
http://www.directcanada.com/products...anufacture=OCZ -$30.65 + $9.99 shipping
(4) OCZ 500w PSU
http://www.directcanada.com/products...anufacture=OCZ -$57.75 + $9.99 shipping
(5) Gigabyte 8800GT video card (4)
http://www.directcanada.com/products...cture=GIGABYTE $184.87 x 4 = $739.48 + $9.99 shipping
(6) 80 GB H/D
http://www.directcanada.com/products...acture=WESTERN DIGITAL -$41.60 + $9.99 shipping
(7) Vista OEM
http://www.directcanada.com/products...ture=MICROSOFT -$126.21 + $9.99 shipping
(8) DVD ROM
http://www.directcanada.com/products...manufacture=LG -$17.28 + $9.99 shipping

Total so far = $1,337.66

This is what I have come up with so far. Without knowing exactly when we will purchase, we can't take advantage of sales or MIR's. We should also be fine with the stock H/S, no overclocking should be necessary. I believe that we should go caseless to save funds as well.

If wanted we could throw in a Lian Li mini Mobo tray.http://www.performance-pcs.com/catal...ducts_id=20966
This would be an extra $22.50 + shipping, and we would have to find a Canadian retailer if possible. Personally I would just throw it on a wood tray and call it a day.

Ok here is the list, with the exception of the video cards. The cards on this list have been disactivated. I would recommend these 8800GT's instead then.http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814133232
