HDD: Seagate Barracuda ES 750GB SATA2 3GB/S 7200RPM 16MB Cache NCQ Hard Drive - DirectCanada

Comes to about $3155 total, needs a case though for like, another 60-150 dollars, free ground shipping and 6% tax. Just so you know, that is one BEAST of a system.
nice build there.. also to the OP.. you can't buy from Newegg since they only ship to the US....

but make a couple of changes... that OCZ GameXStream are known to have ripples so change it... plus its a bit much anyways.. why get a Q6700? ITS DOUBLE the price of a q6600 and is just 266 mhz faster anyways and has a 10x multiplier... also add a Cooler because a Stock Intel Cooler is crap..
