1. Buying a DIY combo deal is a ripoff
2. Buying on Newegg in Canada is a ripoff (shipping costs)

Suggestion, from a Canadian store, in a moment...

All suggestions from NCIX. They ship all over Canada for a much lower cost than Newegg.ca as they are actually based in Canada, or the person can pick up locally in metro Vancouver or Toronto area. They will also price match to Newegg and other stores (copy link & paste, provide price, in shopping cart). I personally shop here.

Phenom II x4 925 + basic MSI 785G motherboard - $150, $140 AR (with 9-day no-wait rebate)
2x2GB G.Skill Ripjaws DDR3-1600 - $35.57 price matched
MSI GeForce GTS 450 - $110, $70 AR (with 9-day no-wait-rebate)
NZXT GAMMA - $35 price matched
Mushkin Enhanced Volta 500W PSU - $27.66 price matched, $22.76 AR
Seagate 1TB 7200RPM HDD - $49.69 price matched (You ideally want a 7200RPM for the main OS drive)
ASUS 24X DVD - $17.79 price matched

Total cost: $425.71 before all rebates and shipping
$377.71 after no-wait 9-day-return rebates (+/- $1)
$372.71 after Mushkin rebate

Original cost of Newegg parts: $468.98
Original cost of Newegg parts after shipping: $523.21

Total amount of cash you saved: $120-150
Parts quality: Better all-around
Budget headroom: Plenty. Go get yourself another hard drive or something.

^^^ Yeah this is what I mean when I say:
1. Buying a DIY combo deal is a ripoff
2. Buying on Newegg in Canada is a ripoff (shipping costs)

Enjoy

I might also recommend you wait for a new (big) sale to begin tomorrow, to commemorate a new NCIX store opening in Mississauga (speaking of which if your friend lives near there he/she should go at July 16th, there will be prizes at the door among other things!)
