plus you can use paypal as per your liking
Man, I wouldn;t trust ebay for a processor at all among other things....anyway...the shipping would eat me alive. Directcanada only has HST...ground shipping is FREE

also, can you guys tell me if this power supply is any good?
http://www.directcanada.com/products/?sku=35290AC4933

I don't really want to spend $50 on a power supply unless I need to....any tips welcome.

Also, what type of motherboard should I get if Im getting an Intel Core 2 Duo e6300? My budget for a motherboard is around
$100-$130 and I only plan to be overclocking to a mediocre degree perhaps when gaming/using photoshop/video editing software.

This is the current motherboard I have picked out....
http://www.directcanada.com/products/?sku=12200BD9575

..comments welcome.

Also...is the product shown here used for memory cards as in ones from video/camera's? Like SD models? What do you use this for?

they upgrade the 6(3/4)00 's April 22nd 07. That's too far off for me. Just get yourself a good mobo and upgrade the CPU when the prices wont' lead to a heart-attack.
Cheers

that's a pretty good website actually :-/
anyway, i'd go for a better power supply. I didn't find any reviews, but what i'm picking up is that if the power supply craps out so does the rest of it
