Why do you want a 1000w psu? Were you planning to upgrade to two 5970s in the near future? 1000w is a huge overkill.

Get a Cas7 mem stick set instead for a few bucks more.

Honestly I'd rather see you get a hsf with a 120mm fan vs your 80mm one. Check out a Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus. As such it might not be that much better then the stock one that comes with the 955.

A 450-500W PSU is more than enough. Cooler Master Hyper TX3.

Some links to the Canadian sites you prefer?

1000watts will most likely only be needed if you liquid cool quadfire 5970 and overclock the colour off them then you might be making 1000watts sweat

1000W psu is useless, you will never ever need that much. Even 5 years from now. Newer GPu's will start to use less and less power. So a 600-800W is what most people look at (even 800W is overkill)

Here's a much better build, I hit a 5850 in this =)
