Here's what I just built last week (all bought in-store in Toronto, Canada):

*prices after discounts + rebates

i3 3220 - $120 (Tigerdirect price-match with NCIX)
MSI H61M-P31-G3 - $35 (Tigerdirect)
Corsair XMS3 2x4GB - $50 (Canada Computers)
GA Radeon 7770 - $105 (Canada Computers)

By the way, I can confirm that my board needed no BIOS update to run an Ivy Bridge processor.
