NewEgg List (Im Canadian)



so its my birthday and my mom offered to help me buy parts for a new pc
Basically I need this baby to run the newest games decently(Battlefield 3?). I just wanted to
put out the list that I currently have and see if anyone can spot something I missed or
If you guys have anything you think I should replace, or price match some of these parts.

,Thanks

Dont need os mouse or keyboard ( my friend can get me a free copy of windows 7 from his mom :D)
 
Switch the mobo to ASUS P8Z68-V PRO $204.99
It's 5 bucks more BUT it comes with free shipping which is savings of $12.27 :p

The Mobo uses dual channel memory, so 2x4GB 1.5V 1600Mhz kit is what you should go for.
Gskill RipjawsX 2x4GB CAS8 1600Mhz $78.49 will do nicely.

After those 2 switches you will be good to go.

Also looking at your parts it seems that if you ever need more speed, just pop in a 2nd 6950 your PSU can handle it nicely :)

Thanks rvilkman And Browsingtheworld I went with your changes and changed the mobo, ram and switched the PSU for the 850w ocz one browsing recommended. I thought I might as well go big on wattage so I can crossfire later without having to worry about it.

*facepalm how did i forget the samsung F3, thanks for the suggestion cbrunnem, I'll replace the WD

@cbrunnem you gave me the US link but I still updated my list with the Canadian version which is still $20 cheaper than the WD.

That's an optional fan for the top of the case. I put that in the build for the fact I put dual vid cards in that build and two cards along with o/c the cpu makes for some major heat. But ya, that case has decent airflow.

I have no idea why the OP's build is like it is. He has thermal paste when the way over priced @ newegg CM212+ comes with thermal paste, he has a 850w psu for what should be a 750w psu...and that 850w is totally over priced, not to mention he has over $100 in shipping charges and a single vid card for all that money. $200 Z68 board for a gaming build?
