What do you guys think? I want to be able to SLI in the future if I want too. Top cooling fan on the case is important too me. Also like the modular power supply for cable management.
 

Is this a Canadian build? I see you have that asrock board listed for close to $200 and that CM cooler for $40.

It's a very solid build. CM PSUs tend to be crap, but the Silent Pro series work very well, so it shouldn't be much of a worry. I would get a Samsung F3 Spinpoint. It tends to be the HDD of choice for new builds (it isn't 6.0GB/s, but honestly the difference between the two is barely noticeable).

Yes it is, why? Is it way cheaper in the states or something?

Newegg.ca is charging me 19$ for shipping for everything. As far as I can tell I checked for the mobo on bestdirect.ca and it was 10$ more, and thats only one item.
