Welcome to Canada eh! Newegg.ca still has to sell in CAN $$$ which is trading at sub 0.80. Those are about the best prices you'll find in Canada, atleast they were last night.
You'll be hard pressed to put together a good i7 rig for $1000CAN without making some significant compromises. Especially if that $1000 includes taxes and S&H. The only way to do it would be to stage it, most of the components now + cheapo case/gpu/RAM, and then upgrade them later. That might get you around $1000. Otherwise you're looking at either a high end quad/dual system or wait a couple/few more months and it should be doable.
