  1. Firstly... I dont see any reason for that motherboard. You'd be just fine with a $250 dollar board with the same overclocking features.

    Also... Yo ucan get a GTX480 for $430 on newegg (after rebates) i'd say spend the extra $60 over the 470

    Can always save money by gettting an HAF case... also the PSU is overkill unless you plan on running quad SLI - a $100 800watt will be more than fine, even to run SLI'd 480's

    Where are those prices from? They're all very high and if they're from newegg, they must be old. Newegg has that mobo for 359 with free shiping, i7-930 is 289 with free shipping... etc. You need to look for combos too on newegg.

    You should be able to get that total price down to around 2100 WITH a 480
  2. which mother board would you suggest then, i want one that i will be able to upgrade in a few years when my components get a bit dated, and all the prices where from not where the price is cheaper but im guessing its not in canadian dollars.
