Not that bad. I'd suggest going with Newegg for their combo deals... you should probably be able to shave off enough to get SSD. If you don't go SSD then do RAID with HDD if you want the multitask/program load times to not bottleneck your system too much.

^ he already has an ssd listed.

you don't need an 850w psu.

this is a good price for this psu if you can get it.
NCIX.com - Buy Silverstone Decathlon DA650 650W 20/24 Pin Power Supply ATX / EPS12V Active PFC 120MM Fan - DA650 In Canada.

everything else looks ok.

Newegg sucks in Canada... We rarely get free shipping and shipping is expensive. However, we can pricematch at ncix and so it lowers the price.

Also as egg ships outa the US, it can be over a week to 2 weeks just to get it.

Edit even odder, we don't get bundle deals to search.

I would get this SSD if I were you: Newegg.com - OCZ Vertex 2 OCZSSD2-2VTX40G 2.5" 40GB SATA II MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)
It has better write and read speeds, specially the write speeds 36MB\s against 270MB\s. I have a Vertex2 60GB and I'm very happy with it

Regarding the HDD I would get a WD Black. You're not going to be able to install all programs on the SSD, only 40GB, so you should have a fast HDD to load the programs that aren't installed on the SSD. The point of the WD Green Series is to store data, less power consumption but less performance, 5400 RPM.

Everything else looks good.
