Ok then... I know there's a ton of these posts out there but I've had a hard time finding Canadian ones cause all of these nice deals are on newegg (who i don't think deliver up here).

So I've been looking for a motherboard that is cross-fire ready and a Radeon 4850. Except I don't know too much about motherboards but the CPU and Mobo combos at tigerdirect for cross-fire ready boards aren't so good... So can anyone recommend me a mobo and cpu combo with where to purchase in Canada?

I'm looking to keep the build as cheap as possible knowing that I only want Radeon 4850, Q6600 (at least? or is an E7200 better?), mobo (cross fire ready, but i will only get 1 GPU for now), RAM and a case and powersupply that can fit it all.

I don't plan on overclocking so... yes. Suggestions please :)

P5Q Pro $140 (save $17 if you buy while the promoid is still active i.e. today)
http://www.ncix.com/products/index.php?sku=30418&vpn=P5Q Pro&manufacture=ASUS&promoid=1043

Palit HD 4850 with dual-slot cooler $160
http://www.ncix.com/products/index.php?sku=30981&vpn=XAE/48500+T352&manufacture=Palit Multimedia Inc.

If you're outside British Columbia you don't pay provincial tax at NCIX.

Q6600 $200 (if you buy today and use this promoid, you save $26)
http://www.ncix.com/products/index.php?sku=22211&vpn=BX80562Q6600&manufacture=Intel&promoid=1043

I'll try to find the rest later.

There be where you are wrong. Newegg has a website for Canadians. It hasn't been released to the public yet but you can register for up to a $5K CAD shopping spree. Check it out at:
http://www.newegg.ca/

I dont know how much longer it will be but Newegg will be shipping to Canada before the years end. At least I hope so, I'd like to send some stuff to my brothers in Canada for Christmas this year.

Hope this helps you a little bit more. :D

He's right, Newegg doesn't ship to Canada. Amazon.com won't ship hardware to Canada either, even though they are happy to ship DVDs and books. I think it's a law thing.

The Canadian Newegg will be up in time for the Christmas sales, I'm 99% sure. For now, www.memoryexpress.com and www.ncix.com seem to have the best prices in Canada.
