New Gaming PC under $1100 - Canada

I am new to homebuilt pcs and was looking for help with searching for the right parts for max performance within budget.

I will need all components of the pc (case, motherboard, video card etc.). I will also prefer ordering from newegg or any other online stores you might see fit or even my local stores in Lloydminster, AB, Canada

    I vote for this, i build one similar for my friend (only difference is Kingston HyperX over Mushikin, Crucial M4 SSD and a Corsair 750watts PSU as he plan to crossfire his 7870) and as far as i know, he is very happy with that new build ;)

    PS: I also use NCIX.ca, great shipping deals and very fast (i'm from Quebec and it takes 2 days with expresspost)
  5. I like EzioAs's build +1
