With the monitor I bought for this build it's coming to $1280, but with that damn Canadian tax it's going to cost me $1450 which my wallet isn't going to enjoy.
I don't really care about the optical drive so something that costs less is even better, as long as it still reads and writes. I've already bought the RAM so I can't change that. Also the Mushkin SSD is either out of stock or on back order everywhere I look, anyone know what's up with that? Should I have a second choice in mind, and if so any suggestions? Also looking for alternate case suggestions around $70 or less.
Approximate Purchase Date: As early as tomorrow to as late as end of Jan.
Budget Range: Current build is pushing it, I'm looking to cut costs if possible. Don't want to factor in MIR since I'm a lazy ass, instant rebates are great though.
System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming (FPS titles like TF2, BF3, also RTS games like SC2)
Parts Not Required: keyboard, mouse, monitor, OS, already bought RAM, and I can hold off on speakers.
Preferred Website(s) for Parts:http://www.canadacomputers.com is the local computer parts store, and everything will be bought there unless newegg.ca has an extremely good deal.
Parts Preferences: The stuff I've listed.
Overclocking: Large possibility of overclocking the CPU.
