900 all in (Canada)

Hi !

here's what I want !

Approximate Purchase Date: next week (with black friday in Canada ?)

Budget Range: 900 all in (can go for a bit more if neeeded)

System Usage : Gaming, web, MS office

Are you buying a monitor: Yes (I would like a 24 inch 1920 x 1080)

Parts to Upgrade: Everything. I would like to get an SSD for that built.

Do you need to buy OS: Yes . Since i'm a techer I wiil look if I can get some rebate on the O/S, but i'm not sure about this at all.

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: ncix, memory expresse or any other canadian retailer
Location: Montreal

Parts Preferences: Preference for Intel but I could go with AMD if it cost less

Overclocking: NO

SLI or Crossfire: NO


Additional Comments: I already have a laptop (gateway nv 59, with I3 330m and radeon 5650) but it's not performing well in games like civ 5. So I want something better than my laptop, and playing on a 24 inch screen is better than 15.6 !


Thank a lot !

  1. Thanks for that sugestion.

    So I guess that at 900$ there's no way I can fit a ssd like I want to. Maybe I can go with an fx6300 and save some cash there ? Could a 7770 can be enough (civ 5, diablo 3, torchlight 2, company of heroes )for now ?
