    go to http://www.abspc.com/gamezone/index.html and use their specs they even list part #'s and then head over to newegg.com and piece it together. I'm just gonna take the lazy route and have them build a X5 for me. I just don't know if I want the p4 2.8 or spend the extra $123 and get a p 3.0

    Go to Canada Computers. Since you're in Toronto you can go to their store in Markham or Missausaga (sp?). Their prices are second to none in Canada, they're even better than NewEgg after exchange sometimes.

    Agreed. I've ordered stuff from them twice, first time they were great, my order was recieved and confirmed promptly and I got it within a week. Second time it didn't arrive at all and apparently got cancelled mysteriously. I'll probably order from them again, but nothing major, just small things, since they seem to be able to handle that.
