That store is right next to where I work. It's good for CPUs, fans and cables/screws but the rest I'd order from Newegg or Amazon. The added 6.25% tax is a killer. Even with that though, their CPU prices are the best.

CPU: i5 2500k $180
Motherboard: GA-P67X-UD3-B3 $155 $15MIR
GPU: newegg MSI N560GTX-TI Twin Frozr II $250 $20MIR
PSU: Go to newegg for that CORSAIR CMPSU-750TX 750W $110 $10MIR
Case: HAF912 Mid Tower ATX Case $58
OS: Windows 7 $100
RAM: newegg G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB $100
HDD: Spinpoint F3 HD103SJ 1TB $60
Optical Drive: DVD Drive $20

That is a total of $1033 ($45MIR) I'd get everything but psu/gpu/ram as they don't seem to have decent prices on those. Otherwise it's comparable to newegg except that you have to pay sales tax. If you are not including windows or have a student copy then $933!
