Okay, so my CM-690 is on its way. I was reading around and a Core i7 would only go a little over budget, and maybe not even considering prices may drop when I actually buy the internals. If I want to drop the price a little, I can switch to 4gb ram. This way my pc will probably last longer than the with the Ph II 720.. Have a look.

Honestly I didn't even take a look at the samsung I just picked it out so I could go to bed (~1:00 am). I live in BC, but I didn't know about the price matching on ncix.

$10 more, I don't see how a better mobo would hurt, thanks. I held off on a cpu cooler so I can do that another time, I didn't add any ram because the OCZ 6gb was out of stock and I may drop to 4gb. This is all before taxes and price matches. The XFX 260 is $220 with rebates! Anything else to add?
