Lightbulb My New Build!!

i wanted to get into building a pc for a while now. i set a budget of 2500 with everything. this is what i came out with.i decided to buy my main components from directcanada cause seemed to have the best deals in canada.





Hard Drive-

Optical Drives-

Power Supply-


Operating System-


Lian Li 65b but couldnt find a place those sold that model in canada

Total= $1,961.62 + $409.00
= $2300.62(Estimate)

so i was wonderin if everything would fit together and work well and if i would need something else and any better surrgestion would be great thanks

Wow that ram is like $100 dollars cheaper in the US on Newegg. I bought mine for $289. Great ram though I love it!

Oh and I would recommend a wide-screen monitor. Whats your budget on your monitor?
