no they are almost 90$ more..and not allowing a generation upgrade now.. grrr. or i would.<br />
and if you can find me a better card, in my budget. by all means... canadian stores are still limited<br />
if i could get what YOU get, i'd be getting that 10yr anni crucial....<br />
<br />
i welcome changes! but plz keep it in the budget and provide canadian links!!<br />
<br />

If you're going for extreme overclocking, I'd suggest a northbridge cooler.<br />
<br />
Personally I'm stuck @ 458FSB... I've heard the P5B-E (asus, I think that's the correct model) does wonders... maybe a better purchase (also more expensive though).. and it's less finakey with RAM

P5B-D is a good overclocker. I can get over 500FSB

I'd probably switch out the video card for a x1950pro, and may be get some ram that uses micron d9 IC's, oh ya and you need a case unless you already have one, plus optical drives, HD's again if you don't have them.

That 7900GS is just a Downclocked 7900GT.<br><br>
everything looks good! Just hope that you get Micron D9 DDRII chips.

Thats probably close to what I would go with, these parts are 859.81 plus gst and shipping.

thats exactly the same, with the exception of the ati card over an nvidia... but i get a 40$ rebate <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Stick out tounge caps"><br><br>
is it actually a better card? if so.. is it worth an extra 40$? lol<br><br>
other than the card, i see no difference
