?? - I wouldn't be concerned just yet about overclocking or SLI. If this is for a gaming build, the first thing you need a larger monitor.

Is that your current build? Or a new one you want to buy?
Because, as you can see, a lot of those components are discontinued...
Also wondering, can you use other Canadian retailers? It will give you cheaper prices and thus a better pc.
