Alright, well, I bought the CPU, LCD speakers and desktop set.
Just waiting for tomorrow to place the NCIX order and get the K62 added on from their customer service.

CPU Stepping is 0921APAW

Canada Computers in ottawa has one left with the same stepping... if anyones interested lol.

Anyways I'll do updates a bit later... still need some help with the PSU issue... and cost issue lol. if anyone has some more ideas let me know.
Cheers,

I doubt that the sales would end up saving me anymore then the price matches I've made.... I think I'll be alright to make the order, its in my budget, but I'm gonna give it tonight to see if anyone on here wants to offer me some of the stuff i need.... otherwise I'll pull the trigger on this build tomorrow.

I made another quick revision.... chose the vanilla 4870. Mostly, because at some point this will all be under water.... so no point to buying an oc'd card when I'll be doing it myself lol

Good idea. Plus you probably saved some cash and that's always a +.

Yup!

i had to make a change for the Case.... Getting Storm Scout instead of the K62. I needed the case asap and the K62 is taking its sweet time to be available... So, i'll use this for the time being, and maybe upgrade later to a HAF 922 or LiLi if one becomes available on here ...:P

I would drop those crappy Logitech speakers, the sub is good but the speakers suck. Take these instead: Edifier M3300 2.1 Flat Panel Speaker System 41W RMS Wood Sub Enclosure Black

Hey Mat, where did you price match the Coolermaster 212+ for $25?

I actually went out and exchanged the logitech speakers for some M-audio AV20's.... incredible speakers.
I'll be doing a review on them shortly.

I'm gonna call NCIX to get the 922 when they open, (if they haven't shipped out the Storm.) and just put the difference on my CC :S
