Memory express has a very limited selection of components. That's why they do price match. In order to price match you have to carry that item, which in most cases memory express doesn't carry it.

what part of canada ? central ?
Winnipeg of course it is limited but the central calgary store has everything any other computer store would have. But like I was saying the motherboard selection is either really cheap or whatever the crew is using.

But like I said in store is really actualy pretty decent compared to a lot of other places.


Canada computers seems to be the biggest win in canada if you can make it to the store memory express is decent
they are good for oddball *** too

oh yeah if you want to play the cheap game....shopbot.ca prices all the canadian dealers nicely but buying all from one spot makes things a lot cheaper

As another opinion: The system Why Me built will smoke those three games.

It is a great system build. I like everything about it and I tried to figure out anything to tweak.

If you aren't going to overclock then you don't need the Coolermaster.

Oh! You might want to get some thermal paste (just so I can add something to the build):

$5.97

Cooler Master cpu h/s like that CM EVO I posted come with a small tube of MX-4 non conductive thermal compound.
