Newegg ships to Canada now?

Read the customer reviews at newegg, they have a high failure rate, as well you can google search and check online reviews.

You have a really nice system there so there is no need to cheap out on a PSU....most people underestimate the importance of a good PSU for performance and proper operation of your system. It powers everything! When a unit goes faulty it can damage other hardware components....

Heres some reading, check the red sentence at the top.

Cooler Master Centurion 5

This computer will not be used for gaming much, and im planning to buy an average video card for now. I also need a 500+W power supply. Suggestions?
you have an excellent system. im sure youve spent a lot of money on it. since youve done that you might aswell just spend another 250 or so and buy a really good video card. ati x1950 is very good

Just go with the Fortron then...good luck.

Word of warning...DX10 cards demand alot more power than current cards.
