Default Running out of time...

Hello, not long ago I asked the community to make me a build for about $1000, and I got very good support from some users, one of them even made me a whole build. The thing is that some of the parts in that build were on deal, and right now they aren't, so the total price prob went up. The other thing is that I want to buy my PC asap, so I was thinking about this Friday. Anyways I will show the build that was recommended to me and I would like you guys(the community) to tell me if there are better parts for the same price, if I should upgrade some of the parts, or what would you just change in general if you were in my position. Here is the build:

God damnit, I got your PM while I was at work and of course completely forgot about it. Sorry. I'll run through it again, I only suggested the A70 that week because it was on sale for $30. Will have to go with something else most likely.

Et voila, under $1000.

NCIX.com - Buy Corsair Cooling Air Series A50 Performance CPU Cooler LGA775 LGA1155 LGA1156 LGA1366 AM2 AM3 - Corsair - CAFA50 - in Canada

its on sale again, well the a50 is not a70...

the Haf 912 is nice, here's a link of a Thermaltake case which I've enjoyed using. I especially like how its finished in black inside and out. (the HAF 922 and 912 are not)

NCIX.com - Buy Thermaltake V4 Black Edition ATX Mid Tower Case 4X5.25 1X3.5 EXT 4X3.5 INT Front USB Audio No PSU - Thermaltake - VM30001W2Z - in Canada

As per Dangtx's recommendation, This is well worth the extra 22 bucks compared the the Seagate 1TB.

hmm not bad I guess, but now I am getting a bit greedy lol. Basically I am seeing a lot of potential in the price match feature that NCIX.com has to offer, and I am also wondering a couple of things. One, if an item is on deal (let's say 50%) will the price of the original item drop to match the one on a deal ? Two, does the price match feature sees the MIR as a discount or does it just ignore it? Because right now I am looking at the GTX570 ASUS GeForce 570 GTX DirectCU II Fermi 742MHZ 1280MB 3.8 GHz GDDR5 2XDVI HDMI PCI-E Video Card - DirectCanada and I think that it is worse the extra $80, so can anyone give me some insight on that?

PS: Don't worry about answering me late, it's better late than never anyways.

Not quite sure what you mean by the first question. Price match is price before MIR. Most of the links I gave you are for cheaper than you'll find price matched as they're the featured specials for this week's sale.

As for the 570, if you want to spend the extra money I'd say go for it. My 570 treats me quite nice at 2048x1152. Just realize, that specif GTX570 takes up three slots, so it'll cover about half of your expansion slots. That and it's out of stock at NCIX.

What I basically want to know is the max amount of money the price match can chop off an item, I don't think they could price match an item that I found at 1/2 the price on another website, because they would be losing money, right? Also what do you mean by the expansion slots? :S I thought that all video cards only take one PCI-E x16 slot :S

They'll tell you max. They won't go below cost, they'll give you a counter offer. As for the card, look at the back of it. It's going to take up three slots in the back of the case, even though it only uses a single PCI-e slot.
