I got my budget expanded a little 1150 total with everything 1120 including mail in rebates

As for that build above Upgrade the psu I would be nervous to have 550w on a 570
The only reason I wouldn't buy from above is being from I'm in toronto and newegg has a warehouse in mississauga but if all of those are the right price that's an amazing deal!

Edit 1:
I just added it up 972 + 13% canadian taxes is well over 1000

That's why most Canadians are using Direct Canada and Best Direct seeing how both those sites are free shipping. NCIX and newegg canada are pretty much hose jobs for Canadians these days.

Take sometime and browse this forum. Several Canadians on here are using those two sites (Direct Canada, Best Direct) for the fact nobody likes paying shipping charges. Some peeps on here are on a limited budget...$1,000 for example, and those shipping charges can be the difference on a video card, mobo, etc... When it comes to gaming, it's all about FPS.

Why don't you use NCIX? They do pricematch (before checkout) and have locations in the GTA.

so is it true direct canada uses unsealed products or is it just a mad customer blowing scat out of his backside

Peeps come back here a lot and bump their threads saying how their build went, etc... sometimes with pics. Iv'e never read anything negative on here about either one of those company's yet.

NCIX, newegg canada, tiger direct, etc... has been screwing Canadians in the arse for years now. When the Canadian dollar went up, the prices of those places didn't go down.
