Unfortunately they don't have the Asus P8P67 Pro here... :| I was planning on getting a Gigabyte P67 board but it turned out to be ridiculously overpriced at $285.
I don't plan to crossfire though, so would the MSI be fine? (What's the difference between the MSI P67A-C43 B3 and the Asus P8P67?)

Don't know the price of the Lexa S there but here it was pretty expensive compared what it offered (in my opinion). I would get a CM 690 II for that price or even a Lancool PC-K60.
Also I dislike MSI boards and would get an Asus
Surely you can get better price for a 500Gb or 1TB hdd? Here the 320gb are more expensive per gigabyte than the 1TB.
Actually I found out that an upgrade to the 500GB was $3, so I will be getting the WD Caviar Blue 500GB.
The Lexa-S case is ~$70... Would that be considered expensive? (Actually I've checked NewEgg and it seems that it is $70 in the US too. What would be the difference between the CM 690 II and the Lexa-S? Isn't the CM 690 II more costly?)
About the graphics card: Would the 6950 be better than? I've asked some people and they said that the 6850 would do well on a 1440 x 900 monitor.
