If you're buying online then go use shopbot.ca to find the lowest selling price of each component, cut/paste the link into notepad or word and then go buy your system at ncix.com and use their pricematch feature.

Or find a local place that will also match prices and use shopbot again.

[edit] ballistix RAM 2gb is on sale right now for $100 at tigerdirect.ca, buy, buy, buy![/edit]
good luck!

Now he is asking if its really worth getting a quad core over a dual core, is it worth the extra cash?his other friends are telling him just to go with dual core and they say it will be the same performance

because the ultra is $550 and 2 x GTX is $950
and right now in games dual core = quad core performance but not in the coming years
