came up with this: what should i change. Btw, I'm not buying from online store cause shipping etc...
Everything is in CAD
22in LCD monitor - ~200$

Asus m4a78 pro + Phenom II 720 - ~ 300$
WD 640GB - ~75$
CD/DVD ROM ( got one) - FREE
BFG GTX 260 - ~240$
Corsair 4GB XMS2-6400 - ~ $40
Antec 900 & corsair VX550 - $210
Cpu Cooling - Stick with stock till later

I have a feeling im missing something but w.e

TOTAL: 1065x1.05GST= 1118.25$ CAD

Anything i should change/upgrade? Any flaws, bad parts etc.

thanks

Looks good.

The PSU offers 41A and that card requires at least 38A. That is, it will do but it leaves you little room for upgrades such as overclocking or adding hard drives. Maybe a Corsair 650W, if it's not a lot more expensive where you live?

You need a Vista 64-bit too for best results, i.e. DirectX 10 and full access to 4GB of RAM.
