In my opinion you can have a good case for much less $ : http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1681...

And a cheaper hdd : http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1682...

And a cheaper psu : http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1681...

How knows you might even get a 670 GTX with the price difference : http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1681...


You'd really suggest the CX600 over the Seasonic model? I'm not sure I would advise that. :heink: 

I would suggest a Radeon 7950 over a 660TI but that's just me: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

For the 660 ti or 670 gtx a CX600 will do, i know the seasonic is better, but the Corsair will do and it's cheaper, also modular, with the rebate it nets 59.99$, if you say otherwise, it's not true.
As for the card, i'd just stick either to the 660 ti or the 670 gtx.
