OK How about this PSU, OCZ Z-SERIES 650W 80+ Silver Certified (OCZZ650), it is $10 cheaper after MIR, but it is 650 Watts, 80+ Silver Certified. Would that be enough to crossfire also. Thanks

How about the motherboards, The only difference I can tell between both boards is that the Gigabyte Board has USB 3.0 , other than that both board are pretty much similar. Same warranty, same spec, no difference really. Would which would recommend.You said to choose the Ati 5850, I read in one of the forums that for crossfire an 8X, 8X slot will be just as good as 16X, 16X slot, but if I choose the 5850 and later on when I decide to crossfire the 5850 will it lower the performance of the 5850. Thanks

I ordered a computer from NCIX a couple of days ago and they tried to tell me that I couldnt get the free games that came with it OR FREE SHIPPING.

They wouldn't budge on the shipping charges, but after I reminded them that I was buying a $4100 gaming rig from their site and I wanted the "free" games that came with it, they caved. Don't let them talk you out of your free stuff!

The Final Price with www.ncix.com is $1100. That includes everything, shipping + tax
You can never get that price with www.newegg.ca. Plus I trust NCIX. For RMA they pay for both way shipping so that is great, and only 5% taxes which is another great bonus. And for this week they have a $6 Shipping Promo once your order is over $100 and less than 100lbs. Great Deal
