  1. For $700 you can build a better one yourself.... is that an option?

    If not, try going on CP and customizing one straight from there. However, i would warn against using their PSU's (which are labeled "Xtremegear"). they are terrible and can fry your whole system...
  2. do you want a AMD procesor or a Intel procesor?

    what games are you going to play? [ or what are you using]

    how much is your budget?

    EDIT: do you have a microcenter near?
  3. I say $700 only because the computer was $570 and the graphics card he wanted to add was another $120.

    well this is my setup, i am still learning but what do you think? is only 10 dollars more than your normal budget.

    EDIT: if you do have a microcenter near them go ahead and pick it up. if not than buy it off ncix or amazon [ pretty trusted website ]
  5. Keep in mind he linked Newegg Canada - we don't have Microcentre here. And parts have a 10-20% premium, so $700 isn't much.

    +1, i hate sourcing parts for canadians :fou:
    Ridiculous tax and shipping rates :ouch:


    Tell me about it. I just paid a $240 tax on my $1800 build. They said HST will cancel off with government benefits...I say yeah right.
