Go with these sites instead

Buy Buy CPU, Intel CPU, AMD CPU - DirectCanada - DirectCanada

Newegg.ca - Computer Parts, PC Components, Laptop Computers, Digital Cameras and more!

Tigerdirect is never ever one of my options when it comes to upgrades.

Are you in Canada, or USA?
The prices lead me to believe you're in USA.

If it's a 7200.12 model.

If you're in Canada, I'd go with this:
Newegg.ca - ASUS M4A78 Plus AM3&#47;AM2&#43;&#47;AM2 AMD 770 ATX AMD Motherboard - AMD Motherboards

If not:
Newegg.com - GIGABYTE GA-MA790X-UD4P AM3&#47;AM2&#43;&#47;AM2 AMD 790X ATX AMD Motherboard - AMD Motherboards

Newegg.com - Seagate Barracuda 7200.12 ST3500418AS 500GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb&#47;s 3.5&#34; Internal Hard Drive - Internal Hard Drives

Newegg.com - XFX HD-487A-ZHFC Radeon HD 4870 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFire Supported Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards
or
Newegg.com - SAPPHIRE VAPOR-X 100269VXL Radeon HD 4890 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFire Supported Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards

Newegg.com - AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition Deneb 3.2GHz 4 x 512KB L2 Cache 6MB L3 Cache Socket AM3 125W Quad-Core Processor - Processors - Desktops
(since it's only $10 more than the 940 now, and has the advantage of being AM3)

Newegg.com - OCZ Platinum 4GB &#40;2 x 2GB&#41; 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 1066 &#40;PC2 8500&#41; Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model OCZ2P10664GK - Desktop Memory
