How much are you planning on spending on these components?

What kind of RAM do you have already?

I would pass on the WD Black; you can get a Samsung F3 1TB for ~$20 less, and it will be just as fast. SATA III drives are limited by the platters, not the transfer bandwidth, right now.

I feel like you can get the Asus board a little bit cheaper. Another highly recommended board is the ASRock Extreme4 P67 since it's cheaper with standard build quality.

I feel like you could get a better GPU, especially for that price.

You may also want to invest in a better CPU cooler if you plan on overclocking and gaming.

Is there a recommended place to get these parts? I live in Canada so the parts are a bit more expensive than the US, I have 4 gigs of RAM. I do not want to overclock, but I do plan on gaming.
If it isn't much trouble can you maybe please make me a list of parts for under 900? I do live in Canada so use Canadian websites please.

Thanks so much

I would use newegg.ca, since their prices are great here in the states.

Try looking for some of those parts there and see if the price differs at all.
