Directcanada.com has free shipping on orders over $50. I caution agaist figuring rebates into the budget. I've had a 50% success rate in the last year or so, and from what I hear, this is pretty typical. Your build is decent for your budget. I'm not sure what games you want to play or how well that GPU will hold up. I see that you don't plan on buying anything for another month or so....prices will change. You're best bet is to come back about a week before your purchase date and post this. Hope this helps.
