Plus, it gives you a chance to test all the hardware to see if it works. RMA it if it doesn't. I would say, build your own. I'm not familiar with Canadian to US conversions, but you should have adequate funding to build a decent computer. Best of all, it will be yours and you can be sure to get all the latest and greatest stuff.
