Hopefully I haven't made any mistakes, and I'm not making any suggestions on your list, but hopefully you can find a better deal than the prices in your original post. Good luck!
Thanks for the heads up ! I've looked at a few sites, but haven't looked through this one yet. My big draw is actually to www.ncix.com
. It is a Canadian company based in British Columbia, has average pricing (but is willing to price match to any Canadian online retailer), a flat $50 fee to assemble/configure/test your build, and they offer free shipping (as far as I can tell...). Canada Computers is based in Ontario which is normally 5+ days ground shipping vs 2 from Vancouver area - the less amount of time on a truck, the better !

I figured getting faster memory could help with the overclocking... I know that DDR2 800 is still mainstream, would 1000 or 1200 help my build at all, or just waste money ?
I have done a bit of reading up on the S1283; looks like a great product and is now in the build !
Thanks again !
