A wireless card shouldn't cost $50, I know I've picked them up for less than 10 bucks.

my bad, the site I was looking on (same as my pc builder) had stunning prices..

I found this gigabyte on newegg, seems like the reviews aren't as worse as other cards.

Instead of that PCZone place, I would recommend taking a look at this.

NCIX.com - Canada's Premier Computer Store - Great Technology, Service and Selection.

Yea, I wish I coud build my computer there, but like I said in my first post I cannot buy it on the internet. I need to buy it a store in Montreal and the only two stores that build computers are Microbytes (where everything is overpriced) and PCzone. There's probably some other very small stores building computers but I don't know them and they are not trustable anyway (I know because I have a couple stores like this on my street and I'm definitively not going to trust a 1.5k machine to them).

You actually never stated you couldn't buy it online, just that you couldn't build it from parts.

I still think you should find a way to buy it online, you're going to save a fair chunk of change going that route.

Yea it wasn't very clear, I didn't say it directly.

I tried assembling it on NCIX and it gives me approx. the same price with the wireless card included: 1400$

Fair enough then, I've just never heard of PCzone.
