What do you guys think? I want to be able to SLI in the future if I want too. Top cooling fan on the case is important too me. Also like the modular power supply for cable management.

Best solution

Is this a Canadian build? I see you have that asrock board listed for close to $200 and that CM cooler for $40.

It's a very solid build. CM PSUs tend to be crap, but the Silent Pro series work very well, so it shouldn't be much of a worry. I would get a Samsung F3 Spinpoint. It tends to be the HDD of choice for new builds (it isn't 6.0GB/s, but honestly the difference between the two is barely noticeable).

Yes it is, why? Is it way cheaper in the states or something?

Did you click the link I posted and see my post on that thread? Do you know what free shipping means? It's when you don't pay any money for shipping...as in it's free.

Newegg.ca is charging me 19$ for shipping for everything. As far as I can tell I checked for the mobo on bestdirect.ca and it was 10$ more, and thats only one item.
