ok, so my updated build list is:
CPU:AMD Athlon II X2 250 Dual Core
MB: MSI 770-G45 ATX AM3 770
RAM: same as listed
GPU: same as listed
PSU: OCZ FATAL1TY 550W
(i like the red)
Total: $519.99 including tax (have i mentioned how much i hate the HST?) I can afford $19 extra and if i wait abit for a sale, the PSU has been know to hover around the 420-$40 mark with the mail in rebate.
Just a final question, Why does nobody ever use NCIX to suggest parts? I, not sure about America but in canada they have more parts that are more often than not cheaper than newegg.ca!
