Default $2000 Monarch Build

hey my dad told me that i can buy a new computer in February, and i live in Canada, but ther r no good sites to buy pcs in Canada so i decided to buy from monarchcomputers and have them ship it here.
i am looking for a good gaming computer and multitasking. i need everything including monitor mouse keyboards.. please help me build one that all addds up to $2000 plus the shipping and handling, or a litle over is okay, like 2100. thanks

-justin

ye it is good but u forget the fact that i live in Canada, the shipping and handling is $450 itself. plus the LCD monitors at monarchcomputers r like 339 the least... and im not looking for SLI.

or you can buy a monkey and train it to steal computer components and have it bring everything back to you and you can assemble your own computer by what it stole, but teach it to read so it can steal only the good stuff.

I think the second one. I don't know for sure, but I think they only accept US currency, therefore you would do the converting yourself.

I think this setup would be nice, the processor I had at an x2 3800 but I had to bring it down because of shipping.
Tell me if these links work:
http://www.monarchcomputer.com/Merch...customdesktops

http://www.monarchcomputer.com/Merchant2/merchant.mv?

if not, I'll just copy and paste the components

Hmm wait now are you building yourself, or do you need it prebuilt?
I think there's a couple other places that ship to canada, like tigerdirect, they might be cheaper.
