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.

I'm fairly happy with the build so far but I saw on NCIX suprise sale they had the seasonic 500w (NCIX.com - Buy Seasonic S12II 500W EPS12V 20/24PIN ATX Power Supply Active PFC 80PLUS 6+8PIN PCI-E W/ 120MM Fan - SS-500GB In Canada.) for $70. Would that be a better combo along with the Antec 300 for a case/ps instead of the sonata 3?

Seasonic is a good brand, but for the money, the Corsair 650w is $97 from Direct Canada, and that Seasonic 500w is $114. So you might as well get the Corsair 650.

The Antec 300 is a good choice too.

Well thats regular price. I can pick it up in a suprise sale for $70. Would it be worth it than? It will be $10 cheaper with a antec 300 as oppose to the sonata 3
