  1. if you dont mind driving to the ncix langley store, you can pick the stuff up there instead of getting it shipped

    whichever store is closer
    http://ncix.com/contact/

    most of this stuff can be priced match at ncix.com you just need to provide the url to do so.

  2. if you go to the store and buy stuff there, you can probably negotiate a nice discount but that isnt always guaranteed
  3. Thank you very much I appreciate the help.
  4. no problem
  5. Everything looks awesome, but I'm just wondering will the 500w on the psu be ok?
  6. its actually overkill but it will do you fine. if you are going to crossfire (you said you wouldnt), id get a bigger board and a 600w psu
