Well it does say that the OCZ is in stock. He's picking it up from the local warehouse so I'm guessing the MIR wouldn't be much of a confusion.

Money conversion and such isn't the problem, just the variety is a bit more limited.

I said prices, not $ conversion. For instance, a 8800gtx could cost $60 more there then it would here. I dunno if that is true, just using it as a example.

I personally would go with the 8800GTX and dip down a bit on the CPU. a 6600 or even 65 will work just fine, in fact they will over clock better due to a lower multiplier. the GTX has a much larger amount of pipes and will overall, up your benchmarks by a lot even with the downgraded CPU. Otherwise, great build.

I was going to go with E6600 but in fact it's more expensive at all 4 of my local stores then E6750, weird huh?

I dont really have the money for the top end cards. I'm upgrading from a 32MB integrated, 256mb ram, 80Gb hd, Crt monitor, 250W psu (lol), so the 8800gts 320mb will be plenty improvement for me.
