Default Semi build-Help wanted

Hi Guys,

my first post on here but I have been browsing the forums for awhile.

I am looking to upgrade the more important parts of my system.

I will be buying off this site ncix.com as it is close to me and I can do local pick up of the products.

I am looking to spend about $1100 plus taxes (Canadian $'s)

I have two monitors, 2 IDE/1 SATA Harddrive

2 DVD Drives

I am looking for the lost powerful upgrade possible for my budget.

I wanting a motherboard, processor, ram, graphics card, power supply. I have a case but could use a new one to make the build easier.

I am hoping you guys can help me go in the right direction as to what kind of stuff I should be putting my money into on that site.

Thanks for your help.

Motherboard:
Asus P5B-E ($198.36)

Processor:
Intel Core 2 Duo E6300 ($235.40)

Memory:
Corsair XMS2 2x1GB PC2-6400 ($369.99)

Graphics card:
BFG 7600GT 256MB ($175.56)

Power supply:
Seasonic S12-430HB ($97.58)

Total: $1,076.89 - $80 mail-in rebates = $996.89

Enough room for a new case which is a personal choice. Or a better graphics card like the X1950 Pro, it depends on your needs really, whether you're a gamer or not.

Hmm I couldn't find that E6300 on the site, it's a very annoying site might I say. I'll put that one in my post if you don't mind.

I'll have it in 2-5 days. I'll let you know I like everything. Do I need a heatsink for the processor?
