wow aspire you are dumb; in canada, you can't just pick out parts and have them delivered as easy as it can be done here in the US, and plus, the prices in canada is different from the US, you can \';t just do some currency conversion and get a price

best bet is probably www.ncix.com like chris said

also, that comp you posted is crap (is it one of those pre-built HP or compaq or emachine?)

you can't get any good computers from those crappy companies

what r u talking about? that's not what im doing. and yes that is true. u get it much easier there in the US, but im not going there just because of that. im figuring out what the kind of parts i need then i can find a PC that's close and good enough to what i have.
