It was $1500 CAD. Then it got moved up to $2000, now its back down to $1500 max.
I should be getting i7 for what I'm spending, I don't know why I'm not. This whole thing is starting to piss me off. I might just go in to a store on monday and drop what evers in my pocket on what ever they have to get the **** over with.

**Don't mind the prices. I havent kept that up to date. I've been in email correspondance with a store in Halifax that has been beating both NCIX and CC. It might also have to do with the fact that I bribbed them with a 6pack of beer and pizza.

Here is the build for what you put in your budget before, up top (1650), you can trim it down a little. This is all from www.newegg.ca:


ASUS P6T LGA 1366 Intel X58 ATX Intel Motherboard

Intel Core i7 920
OCZ 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333
SAPPHIRE 100270SR Radeon HD 4850 X2
Antec Twelve Hundred Black Steel ATX Full Tower
LG 22X DVD±R DVD Burner with LightScribe
SAMSUNG Spinpoint F1 HD103UJ 1TB
SILVERSTONE ST70F 700W

Total: 1655.17.

You can cut the fat by getting a cheaper case and PSU. I would keep the GPU, personally, but you can get a cheaper one as well. You still need a CPU heatsink, though.

what other fans have you looked at? thinking of adding extra air cooling? fan controllers? If you're going to toss a fan onto the true, take a look at replacing the case fans with something else too. I'm a bit of a yate loon fanboy, but I've had luck with other brands as well.

Oh god...I feel like you guys are looking for lice... I forget one thing and your on me...
DO NOT FRET! COOLING HAS BEEN ACCOUNTED FOR! If I state the fans I will be using, someone will agree, others will bash, and someone else will try to change my mind. I am replacing all 120mm fans, and adding 1 on the heatsink.

lol...Im going for a walk...i hate computers again.

Isn't this the reason that you posted here? We're not on you or looking for lice.

Also, who cares about people that have nothing better to do than bash you for a fan. If it works for you, that's what matters.

lol...Im just kidding...I just had a headache and needed some air.

I wont know my final budget till monday, and thats when I'll drop the bomb on either an i7 920 build or a Q6600 build. So far the parts picked havent gotten majorly redflagged, so I think im good. From now till monday, its a mystery. The build log will come when the parts arrive.

So, I went to the store, got a quote, put down my money and walked out. Parts should arrive Thursday or Friday.

Look forward to mediocre cellphone pics and a parts list. It will be a secret till then.

For now, I give you the total price, and some gibberish to leave you guessing.

$1719.45

silent, penryn, blue stones, space, and historical american travelers.

Im going to run through the thread and give people + rep for the help the offered so far.

*I also want to mention that this is my first Intel, ATI build. I have been AMD and Nvidea since my first gaming PC 8 or 9 years ago.
