Well I save roughly $100 with that site with the newegg build. But won't the shipping be expensive I buy every part from every seperate site that sells cheapest? Also once my build is done, it switches all the prices to US sites instead of Canadian sites. I don't want to order from those because it will only make me waste more money.
