750$ budget gaming pc (after shipping+tax)

hi :) i'm building a gaming pc mainly based off of the march edition from tom's hardware, the thread is here: http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/value-gaming-pc,2578.html

i changed a few things around to match my price range due to being canadian and also having hst and a few higher shipping costs.

i changed the following:
http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811133094
CASE^

http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817339024
Power Supply^ (i know it's hec but once again, MONEY)

what my ultimate question is i'm wondering what i can do about the motherboard. it's out of stock at the moment and i'm wondering if theres anything that can match it that is an equal or lesser amount of money :)

please help this lost noobie soul who's been leaning over reviews for the past 48 hours <3

  1. Hello Passific;

    for a motherboard: GIGABYTE GA-890XA-UD3 AM3 AMD 790X SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 $120
    If you're thinking about a single video card build (but still having a possibility of future 2nd card and CrossfireX): GIGABYTE GA-870A-UD3 AM3 AMD 870 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 $107

    What are your video card plans?

  3. The you definitely want the GIGABYTE GA-890XA.

    I'm looking for better PSU, hopefully in case/PSU combo deal so the overall price won't change.
  4. With shipping and other things factored in I couldnt find a better overall PSU/Case combo deal.
  5. alright heres a random area code thats nearby :) N9E 2E9
  6. eh, ASRock 880G EXTREME3 is closer to a price match and it also has USB 3.0 / SATA 6.0GB/s
