With some decent parts, you shouldn't NEED to upgrade for 2 to 3 years (unless you really want to stay current). If you don't mind, you could get W7 RC now and use it till it expires next year, then buy an OS. It'd save you money on the front end.

Yup that's what we are here for. I'm sure there's more than just me that are working on a build. Just hang tight.

Anyone that's in on this thread: i7 overkill for him? Or do you think that it would be wise? Otherwise, I'm leaning PII....

I could sell you a Q6600, 750i SLI FTW, OCZ Reaper HPC Edition DDR2-800 RAM and Xigmatek HDT S1283 for $350. That's in U.S. dollars. Won't find a better deal for that price. All you need is a case, hard drive, graphics card and an optical drive and you're good to go. I could sell you a Cooler Master Stacker 830 and a 850w power supply for a good deal. How does all of that for $750 Canadian dollars sound?

And I will confirm that that is a great deal. Should last at least 2 years. That's a great base setup. Not the newest technology, but it's proven.
