Hey guys,

It's been a couple years since my last computer buy so I'm looking at getting a new rig soon. Just looking to get some feedback.

Approximate Purchase Date: Within the next few days
Budget Range: $1000 (pre tax/shipping)
System Usage from Most to Least Important: Moderate Gaming
Are you buying a monitor: No
Do you need to buy OS: No
Preferred Website(s) for Parts: NCIX (Canada)
Location: Toronto, Ontario
Parts Preferences: None
Overclocking: Yes
SLI or Crossfire: No
Your Monitor Resolution: 1920x1080

Buying this in Canada so all prices are in Canadian dollars.

CPU: I5 3570k
Mobo: Gigabyte Z77x-Ud3h (Bundle 379.99)

Cooling: Hypermaster Evo 212 (29.99)

RAM: Corsair Vengeance 2x4GB (43.99)

GPU: ASUS Radeon 7870 1000MHZ 2GB 4.8GHZ (269.99)

Optical: Sony Optiarc 18x (17.99)

Case: Bitfenix Shinobi ATX Window Black (69.59)

Total: $1001.52

I wanna buy sooner than later since some of those prices are limited in time (I've been holding the CPU/Mobo and GPU for a couple days).

Ya I actually prefer Nvidia but that 7870 for 270 seems like too good a deal to pass up, even if it is Asus.
