My System Specs

AMD x3 720

4GB DDR3 RAM (haven't decide brand of model)
Gigabyte MA770t or MA790XT
video card (waiting for a replacement from XFX RMA)
PSU (1 of these Corsair TX750,Antec Truepower 750, or reusing HX520 and getting a OCZ 600w to run my current pc parts)
case (reusing my Antec 900)
DVD reader

so far it seems the best and cheapest prices are from Directcanada. so my question is, is it better to buy during christmas or a bit after christmas for best price. and also, i never bought from internet e tailers before so any input about DC or NCIX shipping to ontario and what fees do i have to pay? (i heard only GST and PST is taken off)
I would say after. Traditionally companies release new products (to try and drum up sales) during the slowest months of the year. All of the online e-tailers are fine. NCIX is in BC so you only pay GST, not PST. I can speak about DC because Ive never used them, I always just pricematch their prices to NCIX and order thru NCIX.

But yes, I would wait, see what new stuff comes out in late jan, early feb, and buy then!
