Off my head seems pretty expensive...
i think u'd get better off newegg.ca

But off hand, that's a fairly OK computer, likely will have bottleneck issues with the cpu and ram.

that's a bit steep for that system. As stated check out the same parts from newegg. It should save you a little bit of money!

Newegg shipping if very reasonable for 3 day service (at least for me in Tacoma, Wa) and they have eggselent customer service and return policy.

Plus think of the money you'll save for NOT having to pay SALES TAX!
more than makes up for the shipping cost imho.

Also- if you would take some advise from a perfect stranger new to these forums (me) who has been buying store bought computers about once every year or 2 for the past ten years, and has finally built his own, I say build it yourself- you could do it for probably the same price- maybe cheaper for the same (maybe even better) components and you will have some pride of ownership. Also most store bought computers have locked bios and limited upgradability. Thats my 2 cents.

I built mine for around 2400$ and im pretty sure it blows away the one you've got listed. even without the overkill 12g corsair dominator- Ive since learned that the extra 6 g of memory doesnt really make much of a diff ><

Like the others have said, it's rather high for the parts you have. You might be able to get a cheaper PSU. I don't think you need 750W for that system. The 4770 don't use as much as the 4800's out now. A 600W-650W will would work for you.

Corsair 650W - $80 after MIR with free shipping
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817139005

Corsair 620W Modular - $120 after MIR with free shipping
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817139002

Seasonic 600W - $130 with free shipping (There's a 650W for $10 more)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817151030

Should list the prices of the parts, so people can look for cheaper parts with the same quality.

I say go for it! Try to get an after market HS like a TRUE or Xiggy. And to be honest that sli set up is OVERKILL for your 17inch monitor...
