:hello:  I just ordered these parts yesterday, I'm feeling really good about the components that I've ordered, but I was wondering if anyone had any comments/concerns.
I guess the main one would be the graphics card. I'm purchasing the card for $325.99 plus a $25 mail in rebate (in canada), figured I would get the new tech, (rebranded tech). The cooler running temp, lower power consumption and comparable speeds helped to make the decision.

I don't plan on OCing, I think for what I've chosen already its going to be a beast. :D 

I think that's it...

The total came to about CAN$1550 after taxes.

Looks great. If you overclock this beast, it will fly.

Well the one thing I can nagg about is you not going for a WD6400AAKS.
Since you're from Canada and I don't know your pricelist I'll skip that too.

Good build, a pitty about the notoverclocking, you could have gone for a much cheaper board and it would have performed the same.

Good luck.
