Default gaming system

hey guys, i will be buying a new gaming system in a few months and i wanted a second opinion on the specs and to see if you know any canadian sites where i could buy the components from(other then tiger direct).

4gb pc6400 800mhz DDR-2 RAM (4x1024)
8800gt 512mb superclocked GPU
AMD Athlon 64x2 dual core 6400+ socket AM2
550 watt power supply, comes in a case with one 90mm fan (im pretty solid with the case.

I have accounted for everything else.

I really wouldnt spend an extra 100$ on the GTS over the GT. You wouldnt see an increase at all, with the AMD processor being a bottleneck.

no one is going to say anything to him about the 6400+?
since he already has "accounted for" an AMD mobo he should get a phenom?
cuz even with that bug it easily beats out the 6400+ right?
