For what hes offering i think that his price might be a little high. I can see about 400 USD so i guess thats 455 Canadian. Those parts are not that amazing but i think that 455 if a reasonable offer for everything. w/o out that other stuff maby like 350 USD so 389 Canadian. Hope i could help

For that money, I think you can build a better system than that.
