Default How does this look and where to buy from

Hi

I am new in Canada and have no idea where to buy from, I got NCIX recommended a lot but I can't say they have the best prices

Does anyone recommend their custom assembly? I tried the price matching but I guess I wont get a reply soon and the special offers I want end by tomorrow so no gain here..

+1 for dan about PSU. Take a look here. 9 of the most popular 850W PSU reviewed by our staff and the word is clear. Silverstone strider plus 850W. I own one myself after this review and it's a never go back unit!

9-Way 850W Power Supply Roundup

The rest look ok to me. You haven't done any noob mistake ( not saying you are one ). Good luck with the build and give us a workblog!

Also, about NCIX price, USE THE PRICEMATCH FONCTION!!!! then you have all the cheaper price from the same place. that will make you save alot and alot on the shipping as well. If you don't know how Pricematch work on NCIX, just ask us we will show you;)

The XFX PSU he chose is better than the Silverstone. In fact, I'd say it's pretty much the best 850W PSU available at the moment.

As does the Silverstone PSU, and the Corsair HX850, and the majority of higher-end units on the market. Obviously it's not an ideal situation, but there's nothing that does have proper OCP and can really compete with it.

I did the price match in the cart thing but did not check out yet, do I need to checkout to get the answer? if they can't match the price will I be charged or get a confirmation?

If pricematch fail they are going to pause the order and ask you if you want to continu. But after years and years never one of mine fail. Except the time I send the wrong link XD but it work when I fowarded the right one.
