OCZ DDR2 667mhz GOLD $144-10
eVGA 7900GTO $260

this is almost exactly what I would choose. I would recommend a core 2 over the Athlon. You will only pay another $80. It has two cores, and can be overclocked to the speed of the fx-62.

the sites you list are not necessarily the best. use pricegrabber for all of the products. they have seller ratings also.

okay, I would get it then, it looks like you have looked at this stuff for a while. consider getting a dual core though. even games are starting to show an improvement.

Why not dual core? PD-805 @3.8Ghz

I'm sure that a system built on it will be cheaper.

Because the 805 is garbage and pumps out heat and the electric bill like no tomorrow.

I agree with the two above. Even though $750 is an even-appearing number, an $830 Core 2 computer would be a much better use of money in my opinion.

If you're not in British Columbia, then you can order from these places and not pay PST. You'll just pay GST and save yourself enough extra $$ to get a dual core AMD X2 3800:

Direct Canada generally has better prices than NCIX, very quick delivery (free if you order the stuff together), helpful, I can't complain. Definitely check them out. Watch for deals on stuff.
