  1. Good choice on the Case/PSU but consider the following for the rest of the parts:

    Western Digital Caviar SE16 WD5000AAKS 500GB

    LITE-ON 20X DVD±R DVD Burner(free shipping, worth the extra $2)

    CORSAIR 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800
    Memory has a $30 USD mail in rebate, will cost the same as your 2 gigs after rebate!

    ASUS M3A78-EM
    bundled with
    AMD Athlon 64 X2 5000+ Brisbane 2.6GHz

    SAPPHIRE 100245L Radeon HD 4850 512MB
    Comes with a $20 USD mail in rebate

    With these changes, your total would come out to $632.89- $50 USD MIR($61.71 in CAD based on current exchange rate)= $571.18 CAD
