Already bought a 5970 2GB OEM for $299.


Parts:

CPU: Intel Core i5 2500K Quad Core Unlocked Processor LGA1155 3.3GHZ Sandy Bridge 6MB $230

Mobo: ASUS P8Z68-V LE Z68 LGA1155 ATX DDR3 2PCI-E16 2PCI-E1 3PCI SATA3 Audio Video Motherboard $144

Case: Corsair Carbide Series 500R Mid-Tower Gaming Case ATX 4X5.25 6X3.5INT USB 1394 No PS White $89

PSU: Antec Earthwatts Green 750W Power Supply ATX12V V2.3 EPS12V Active PFC 80PLUS Bronze 135mm Fan $64

RAM: Corsair CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9 Vengeance 8GB 2X4GB DDR3-1600 CL9-9-9-24 Dual Channel Memory Kit $45

Also buying that $50 thing for NCIX to build it (minus the GPU, that's from Newegg). Comes to $620 before shipping+taxes (vid card not included).

This is Canada. I'm still looking for a 1TB SATA drive, and prices look expensive. Any Black Friday deals for them? Also an Aftermarket cooler for my 2500k (gonna OC it). Finally, how are the components/prices? Any cheaper options perhaps that I'm missing, that have around the same performance?

Great prices, but you're using .com, not .ca =(


edit: the Corsair cooler is about the same on Newegg Canada. How hard is it to put a computer together by myself? I'd save a bit without the NCIX $50, but I don't want to be like "what goes where?"

If you're new to this don't do that yourself straightaway and save your hard earned money.
I myself learned on my old computer etc then started to build expensive machine.

I find parts through Google so sorry about [dot] com. lol

I also think that this PSU will be enough to power your system if you're not opting for future upgrades anytime soon.

Not much price difference, though.

Again sorry for .com

The Hyper 212 is from Cooler Master not Corsair and is budget cooler not best for 5GHz+.

The 212 EVO is fine for high level OCing, it's one of the best air coolers you can get
