Hi guys,

First off, thanks everyone for all your help! You've definitely made this a whole lot easier for me.

So far I have everything but the motherboard and ram (the ones Muffin Man and Slay recommended). Seems like Canada Computers does not have these two in stock and probably wont for a long time. All the other parts I have except for the video card which is on order through CC and it will come in in a few days.

About the mobo and ram: Where could I order these online? The only sites I know which are reilable and fast is Direct Canada and, however I'm having trouble finding this particular motherboard and ram on there (could they make the names any more confusing?? xD). If somebody could recommend a different site or help me find these two on Direct Canada or, I would be in your debt!

No luck on the mobo. No one has it, and no longer carries it.

Thanks again, Trotter. Going to order that ram from Newegg asap.

As for the mobo, I think I will go with my original choice:
Gigabyte GA-EX58-UD3R Socket 1366 Intel X58 + ICH10R CrossfireX Triple-Channel DDR3 2000+/1333/1066Mhz Dual GigaLAN 7.1Ch Audio 6x SATA 2x PCI-E X16
