Hello Toms Hardware people !!! First and foremost I am new here but I love it already, soo many things to learn by just browsing around.
But anyways like the title says above I would like to have a build confirmed by you guys before I go out and spend some cash :lol: 
Also before I start I would like to also hear your guys thoughts on Crossfire builds, should i consider it , get an crossfire mobo or is it not worth it... i will be gaming on my "17 for now but look to upgrade to a 22" in awhile.

Components I will need:
cpu/gpu/psu/case/ram/mobo/harddrive and perhaps a cooler?

I'm looking to buy my parts in-store to avoid S&H, I'm from Canada and I will either be using
www.pccanada.com and/or www.tigerdirect.ca

CPU - http://www.pccanada.com/viewitem.asp?id=6981 ( Iv'e heard this beats the q6600 in gaming because of speed, im not looking to oc as im new at all this, can somebody confirm this ? ) $179.99 CAD

GPU - http://www.pccanada.com/viewitem.asp?id=8161 $259.99 CAD (Was thinking of a 9800 gtx+ but most ppl told me to get a 4850)

PSU - ? Depending on your guys thought on crossfire or not

CASE - http://www.pccanada.com/viewitem.asp?id=5521 $109.99 CAD

RAM - http://www.pccanada.com/viewitem.asp?id=7365 $119.99 CAD ($35 MiR)

Mobo - ? Same thing, depending on your guys thoughts on crossfire

Hard drive - http://www.pccanada.com/viewitem.asp?id=6598 $59.99 CAD

CPU COOLER - ?

Thanks you guys ahead of time, any tips or part swaps I'm open to.
I'm trying to keep this on a 800-900 budget when taxes are included.
