It's a very good machine you getting there sir.
For usual tasks you don't need a faster CPU than the one you got.
As far I know you could get the Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bits OEM for USD99 at US newegg. I think CAD newegg should be equivalent price.

Lower end cpu but will work


ASUS P8H61-M LE Motherboard (P8H61-M-LE/CSM) $72.99CA
Basic board that will work for this build

Kingston DDR3 4GB 1333 CL9 $24.99CAD
1.5v so should work

Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB 32MB 3.5" SATA 6GB/S 7200RPM (WD10EALX) (WD10EALX) $107.99CAD
The blue series is not as dependable as the black line. suggest you go with a 500gb hdd for now

Thermaltake V3 Mid Tower Case $42.99
The following Rosewill is a favorite of Toms buyers:

Good brand and will meet this need but not much headroom for future changes

Total: $ 382

And anyone know where i can get Windows 7 64 bit for cheap?
Win7 64bit $99

Please suggest and comment.

Hey i'm going to bail on this build. It's above my budget( pretty low budget ). I'm considering buying this barebone kit that includes a4-3400, it will meet my families basic needs. HDMI on the mobo is what i think made me lean towards this, since i want to take advantage of HDMI from my cpu. Anyhow, i would like to know what the community thinks before i move ahead.

Biostar isn't known for it's positives

The Llano series comes in very low on the performance measures
