SLI or Crossfire: Maybe in the future (or now, if recommended)

Hi, my friends and I are all in the market to buy new gaming PCs, with a budget of $1500 Canadian before taxes. None of us are overclockers, and we'd like to have the PCs setup professionally, so we need to buy most of our parts (except monitor, basically) at the same (preferably local) location. While their selection in certain categories (RAM) isn't huge, Sigmawave (see link above) is local and seems to have very good prices.
Here are the parts I've worked out so far, with questions below:
5. With these parts, it seems likely that's we'll have to go low-end on power supply, case and monitor to fit within budget. Would you downgrade any of the chosen parts to make room for a better power supply, case or monitor?
Thanks for the suggestion! Unfortunately, overall, the prices seem to average out to the same, with some items being slightly less expensive than at Sigmawave, and others slightly more. And with the nearest store 2 hours away, I'd have to pay for shipping, so it'd be more expensive in the end.
So things fell through, and now it's only me buying a new PC, so questions 2 to 5 don't really apply anymore. With that said, though, I'd really like any opinions on question 6, if anyone has any input.
