  1. 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

    The blue series is not as dependable as the black line. suggest you go with a 500gb hdd for now

  3. 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.
