    Your *MAX* budget is $12K???? :lol: :o

    You also don't need a sound card - they're pretty useless at this point. The onboard audio on the motherboard is all I ever have, and ever used - it's perfectly fine.

    You could put together a fairly competent system for ~$2K. Check this build out (it's late and I'm too lazy to post links, plus I'm not sure how Canada's prices compare to US :lol: ):

    Case: Corsair Carbide 400R - ~$100
    PSU: Corsair AX 1200 - ~$300
    Motherboard: Gigabyte Z68XP-UD5 - ~$250
    CPU: Intel Core i5-2500K - ~$230
    Cooler: Corsair H100 - ~$119
    SSD: 128GB Crucial M4 - ~$210
    HD: Seagate Barracuda 2TB - ~$199
    Video Card: EVGA Geforce GTX 580 - ~$499
    Optical: LG Super Multi BD-R - ~$80
    Keyboard / Mouse: Microsoft Cordless Desktop 5000 - ~$60
    OS: Windows 7 Pro - ~$140
    Monitor: Acer 24" 1080p LED - ~$200

    That should run you about $2500 US, probably $2600 - $2700 CAD.
