Default Canadian Modding (yay)

Alright I've bought from a few American pc modding places for my new rig already (gonna post tons of pics and specs once its done!) and have spent almost 800 on modding parts so far.

But I can't stand the fees of getting thru customs anymore. So does anyone know of a good modding store that ships anywhere in Canada and is IN Canada? I already looked at Bigfoot Computers and they don't have the few parts left I need. Any other suggestions would be great!

Not on a present. If your friends were to buy you a present and send it to you for, say, your birthday. Wonder where they would get the money for those modding supplies you were wnting...?
