Intel i5 750 2.66 Ghz 1156 lga $225
MOBO Asus P7p55D Pro Lga or LE not sure! $193 ($146 for LE)
Harddrive Seagate 1 TB 7200, 3.55" $ 97
Power Supply Corsair 750TX 750 Watt, ATX12V and EPS12v 2.91 $139
OCZ 4GB (2x2048MB) DDR3 PC3-16000 RAM Platinum Edition $138
Lite-On IHAP322 PATA SuperAllwrite DVD Writer - 22x, Black $34
My old Nvidia xfx 9800gt 512MB
Thermaltake ArmorSeries VA8003BUS Case $189

I need your advice and recommendations about these parts (so feel free to include a different part if better... $1000 budget), btw i live in canada,vancouver and i will get the parts from aPower.
