Hey guys, long time reader first time poster

Budget - under 2400 (before tax + 24inch monitor). Total budget for everything is as close to 3000 as I can get it and still be happy. This is all in Canadian Dollars

All of these Prices are stright off of NCIX.com, just off their basic PC builder page. However im not purchasing this rig from them but from someone more local (5min away), as I enjoy supporting local businesses and not having to drive 45min to either pick up a rig or pay for shipping =/.

Neway my biggest question. The largerst about this rig is my Mobo. Should I upgrade to the deluxe, does it make a large difference in Overclocking/upgradeability. I just cant find anything that gives me a real good comparison of the two boards that i can dechipher. Second will this PSU be enough to run 2 GTX 295's if I was to overclock the CPU?

Let me know what you guys think and feel free to give me any tips, pointers, facepalms, anything that could make this rig sweeter than it already will be.

Thanks in advance
