Try this, few part have been re-used from your previous one but important one are better so take a look at it ;)

Mobo : Gigabyte GA-770T-USB3 ATX AM3 AMD 770/SB710 DDR3 PCI-E16 4XPCI-E 2XPCI SATA2 RAID USB3.0 Motherboard - DirectCanada
Ram: G.SKILL F3-12800CL9D-4GBRL Ripjaws PC3-12800 4GB 2X2GB DDR3-1600 CL9-9-9-24 Core i5 1.5V Memory Kit - DirectCanada
HDD : Western Digital Caviar Blue 500GB SATA2 7200RPM 16MB 8.9MS 3.5IN Ncq Hard Drive Oem 3YR Mfr Warranty - DirectCanada
DVD : LG GH22NS50 Black 22X SATA DVD Writer OEM - DirectCanada
Case : Newegg.ca - COOLER MASTER RC-690-KKN1-GP Black SECC/ ABS ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
PSU : Newegg.ca - Antec NEO ECO 620C 620W Continuous Power ATX12V v2.3 / EPS12V 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Power Supply
GPU : NCIX.com - Buy EVGA E-GEFORCE 9800GT 550MHZ 512MB 1.8GHZ 256BIT DDR3 VGA HDMI DVI-I HDCP Video Card - 512-P3-N987-TR In Canada.

687.22 Before tax and shipping so should be around 750 with tax and shipping if you get it all from NCIX with price match! Give us some news!

And! instead of getting old GPU like 4890 4870 I would look to save a week or 2 more to get a 5770 so you have a more recent one and you can even buy them cheap used on HWC for like 135-150 for a 5770 in mint condition. Note that a 9800GT will doa perfect job on your resolution. Take a look few time a week!

Here are few other case I just look at.
Newegg.ca - Thermaltake V3 Black Edition VL80001W2Z Black SECC / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
Newegg.ca - COOLER MASTER ELITE 335 RC-335-KKN1-GP Black SECC Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
Newegg.ca - COOLER MASTER Centurion 534 RC-534-KKN2-GP Black Aluminum & Mesh bezel / SECC Chassis ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
Newegg.ca - NZXT GAMMA Classic Series GAMA-001BK Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
Newegg.ca - NZXT BETA EVO Classic Series CS-NT-BETA-EVO Black Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Martin, thanks a lot for taking the time to link me to those parts, I'll definitely look into them. However, I do not think the 9800GT will have enough power, because I might be upgrading my monitor in the near future.

I don't understand why you tell me that a 9800GT wont be enough and get a 4850 which is the same power and less in many situation...And there something you missunderstand when we told you to get a GODD PSU. But well when the build will be up it will be your problem. Stick with big brand and avoid anything that is extreme low price and have led and flashy thing like that. You get what you pay for remember this.

I thought the 4850 was more powerful than the 9800...
Anyway, I compared prices between the two and the 1GB model of the 4850 is only 5$ more than the 512MB 9800.

The PSU you showed me was a bit on the expensive side (80$ + 14$ shipping) I picked the Fatality PSU because I've read good things about it and because the price seemed decent, not because it has LEDs.

You have to note that a review will NEVER take care of long time product reliability. How many time we see OCZ psu dead in the forum...with corsair, antec, seasonic and silverstone you are out of trouble for sure. And if you PSU die it can easely kill all the part in the PC so not good. They have few good PSU for sure but this one ain't.
