I'm going to buy all these parts from
I AM going to buy at the end of the month so I can't wait for 8600GT

I plan to build around $1500 for somewhat of a high-end computer
and so far I plan to get...

Intel Core 2 Duo E6300 1.86 GHz 2MB $220
Gigabyte GA-965P-S3 $151
OCZ DDR2-800 PC2-6400 Gold XTC 2GB $260
BFG GeForce 8800 GTS nVidia GeForce 8800GTS $600
which comes to $1231

I need recommadations of a HD, PSU, CASE, DVD-RW that would be near $1500
Would it better to get a NONAME DDR2 4200 for $220 and save $40?

and for the rest, I'd like to build a computer with light gaming.
(Sempron 3000+ , 512mb, 7600GT.. etc)
So, 7600GT would be nice.
I already have OP.drives and HD for it.

Just get some 667 memory, its a little cheaper.

Also, why only from CanadaComputers?

I have this for sale in the classified, make me an offer.

The 2nd one your making won't be usefull if only 512 RAM.

7900 GS is a better value than the 7600 GT.

RAM prices are finally coming down.

Only from C.Computers because its probably the cheapest around here.
and If i have a 2grand worth from one place, they will give me a discount.

I think instead of buying a 8800gts, i might upgrade the sub gfx to 1950pro for $250.

If you live here in Ontario, check out these guys........cheapest prices around, better than CC, PLUS they're based in B.C so you only pay GST, no PST ;)  Will save you alot of money between that and the actual base prices:
