I'm not from Canada, but from what I know, & seem to be good choices there.

Firstly, sorry for the double post.

Secondly, you don't have Sata 1 & 2 for storage, you have regular 5400/7200 rpm drives for storage, which will use the Sata 2 ports on your Mobo. (I believe that's what you meant!)

For SSD's, go with G.Skill phoenix pro or OCZ Vertex 2.

I wish you gave a budget & exact usage, but assuming gaming is the primary objective, your system looks alright. But this system should never cost you $2000.

However, change your Mobo to the Asus Sabertooth x58 for some savings. I found this Sabertooth+i7 950+RAM+SSD combo that'll save you almost $75 after rebates.

The is the better option in terms of value - fps/$$ - $205 EVGA GeForce GTX 460 (Fermi) Superclocked EE 1GB (763 cc)


Also, it overclocks a whole lot better -
