Haf 912 - 57.99
StealthXstream 600w - 70.99
Win 7 home premium 64 bit - 109.99
LITE-ON DVD writer - 20.99
F3 Sinpoint 500gb - 48.49
Asus M4A89TD PRO/USB3 - 149.99
G.Skill 2 x 2gb - 41.99
phenom II X4 965 - 149.99
Coolermaster hyper 212+ - 29.99
HIS 6850 - 158.99
Asus VH236H 23" - 179.99

Total with shipping is 1200.35 CAD

I plan on adding an SSD and a 2nd 6850 later on. Maybe more ram and a bigger case also.
That's pretty crap, actually. LOL. The Power Supply is junk, the HDD is too expensive for the storage capacity it provides, the CPU and motherboard are no good for the price, and a larger monitor can be had for the price.

With that said, I think this is much better:

Cooler Master HAF 912: $58

Intel Core i5 2500K: $220

MSI P67A-G45 B3 P67 Motherboard: $140

HIS Radeon HD 6850: $159

Antec TruePower New 650W: $100

Seagate Barracuda 7200.12 500GB: $40

G.Skill Ripjaws 4GB DDR3 1600MHz: $48

Sony Optiarc DVD+RW Drive: $20

Cooler Master Hyper 212+: $30

ASUS V242H 23.6" LCD Monitor: $180

Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit: $110

Total with GST and Shipping: $1195

Yeah, in fact, it oc's pretty well

but I agree with the other people on here
I think for $900 you should be going with intel
also better ram, less expensive hdd, and better psu

$1000-1200 =/= budget PC

In addition, this build sorely disappoints me.

I recently made a build for someone on NCIX (Canadian site) with parts that are better than yours and it cost less than $700. That's right, nearly half the price for a better build. The PC had a 955, GTX 560 Ti, 4GB of good quality non-generic RAM, and other great things; only thing missing was monitor & OS.

From personal experience Newegg.ca is a terrible place to buy parts as the shipping cost from US to Canada kills everything. The shipping cost is probably adding $100-200 to your total build cost; it would be significantly cheaper from a Canadian store such as NCIX. In addition, to not buy from NCIX in Canada would be dumb as they offer great prices and price match to other Canadian competitors.

I'll come up with a much better build for you this afternoon containing, MINIMUM, a 1090T, GTX 560 Ti, 4-8GB of good quality RAM, and a solid state drive. I guarantee you. That is what $1200 should get you.

OP, is this replacing your sig rig? Because you aren't getting much more for 1200 since you already have a phenom ii.

That's what you should ask the OP. He said his budget was $1200 CAD. Nice try, troll.

1090T is a waste of money, to be honest. The 2500K is faster in both single-threaded and multi-threaded applications when both are OCed, plus the 2500K is much more efficient. Also, I checked and prices for NCIX and Newegg.ca aren't much different. Check out the build I made.

Well it's actually 900 since you should subtract the money he's putting aside for the monitor and os
but you can probably still get all that
maybe with a 1055t though?

and unless he's a hardcore amd fanboy, I'd also go with a i5 2500k
