Seagate Barracuda 7200.11 3.5IN 500GB SATA2 $76.88 or Western Digital Caviar SE16 640GB SATA2 $85.88

If you could save a little money somewhere, and upgrade to a E7200 would give you a huge boost since you can OC them to around 3.8GHz

Is that site the best site for Canada? That G.Skill ram goes for $20 less in the US.

Looks a solid budget build. Change the HD as above mentioned. If you can put in extra $60 for E7200, it will keep you happy for a while.

the 7200.11 has 32MB cache whereas the 7200.10 has only 16MB. it is said that the 7200.11 is more quiet and perform relatively better than the 7200.10. so for 6 dollars it's better to get the 7200.11 seagate
