here's the psu: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1681...
also, going to be buying the gfx card from here: http://www.canadacomputers.com/product_info.php?cPath=4...

are there any last thoughts or suggestions I should have before buying?

Also, I'm not sure if this mobo is very great (or maybe it is?) -- is there better for a price that's not much higher?

That power supply I would not trust to run a toaster oven.

Get this, its only $61 with free shipping.

That crapwill is $55 + $4 shipping, so for only a couple dollars more you get a quality seasonic built XFX PSU.



Everything else looks sweet.

I was told to get at least 600 watts on a psu, so I'm guessing that advice wasn't true?

That rosewill probably would fry itself if you tried to get 600w from it.



That xfx will EASILY run your system.

For a 7950 it's recommended a 500W psu with 25A on the +12V rail, the xfx 550 core edition is a quality psu with 44A.
You're fine.
