Care to share what that search engine is? I normally use ShotBot.ca, but I don't think I've ever seen compu2000 on there. Thanks.

I also agree about the 8GB being overkill. 2GB is still the standard (I recommend 4GB on Vista x64 though). Other than that the cart looks good (though I have never heard of Tagan for PSUs)

I use several, although pricecanada.com is the best, IMO, if you just want to use a single engine.


Here's a SKYMTL review of the ABS Tagan BZ-900 - ABS / Tagan BZ900 900W Power Supply Review

I actually bought this PSU last week and, outside of the stiff joints on the SATA power connections, it works great and was easy to install. Very stable, very quiet, nice accessory kit.

Well i looked into that earlier and they said i had to come into store and do it, i guess that was them trying to make money. But if you can do it online unlike there crappy customer service people said then i will. Thank You Jmac

Whatever you do, always try to avoid talking to anyone who actually works for NCIX. In my experience, they make it more difficult and/or frustrating than easier and/or enjoyable.

Just add the stuff to the cart, hit the start price match button, punch in the prices and URLs, click update price match, then proceed to the cart. I've yet to have a price match denied when I haven't e-mailed or phoned to get approval and I order stuff from them once or twice a month.

Jmac thank you for opening my eyes to price matching! For some reason I never paid attention to it before, I wasn't aware that such lower prices for pretty much everything were available!

QUESTION : Price matching, say another store offers a cheaper price, but ncix offers a MIR, is the MIR exclusive to NCIX or can i save another bit of money?

If ncix accept the price match, they will sell you the item at the same price of the comptetitor and your MIR is still valid so you save more .
