PARTS NOT REQUIRED: Keyboard, mouse, speakers

PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: Newegg.ca, Amazon.ca, Tigerdirect.ca, or any where that ships to Canada

COUNTRY OF ORIGIN: Canada

PARTS PREFERENCES: No real preference if it effects system performance, but slightly prefer intel to amd.

Highly interested in SSD if cost efficent. Willing to put this off and wait for a price drop if it improves the build.

ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: Being quiet would be favourable, but not a selling point.

Also, considering getting either one 24' monitor, or a couple of a smaller size (again, monitor not factored into price)
