  2. For about CAD 800, I doubt you could get a good setup with OS and monitor...
  3. I drew this build up from newegg.ca (ncix website is a pain in the butt) $845, includes a 20" monitor and an OS. I had to downgrade the CPU to a GTS 250 1GB (which has good performance in WoW.

    If you shop around at NCIX or http://www.canadacomputers.com/ You should be able to save a few bucks by getting a cheaper (but still good quality power supply) and perhaps a cheaper case. Good luck.
