hey since your moving to Calgary. There are 3 stores in Calgary called memory express (Memory Express - Desktop & Notebook Computers and Computer Parts) I love that store. They are pretty good.

Man your going to the province where pay is great no matte what job you have. Anyways I live in Toronto, if you were comming here to Toronto this place ETC computers has the best prices; however I don't know if they will ship out there to Alberta. I believe they should. Tigerdirect is pretti good here in Canada, I'm assuming your faMiliar with them since they are also located in the states. CanadaComputers is one of the other big computer stores like newegg.

I usually buy (90% of the time or more) from Canada Computers, they usually have the cheapest prices for current parts and I find they have amazing shipping. I got my stuff (a whole build) in less then 3 days, and the shipping cost was only 9.99, which was incredible. You will like it in Calgary, it's a nice place and all jobs pay extremely well in Alberta, not to mention the housing cost is alright compared to the US and the taxes are pretty low.
