the monitor you just mentioned is a slightly smaller version of the Asus VW246H

today at 199.00 keep an eye on it for savings either at newegg or elsewhere your choice will certainly fit the bill but for a possible $30 dif  ..timing could be everything

  hope your having fun with this [:)]

I would go with EVGA. They tend to have the best warranties for video cards alone.

Agree spend the extra money and get the EVGA.

Good luck with your build.

Does anyone know the difference between these two RAMs.

Seems identical to me except for the color, yet the price is not the

same.

"Its the same exact RAM, whats happening here is that the RED colored version isn't selling as expected, thus is Ovestocked, so Newegg has it for less to clear some over inventory,  I would take the red one and save $10 "

-Optimus

+ Notice that the Blue Module is code named 

CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9B And a "B" at the End

CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9R and the Red one with the "R" at the end.

You got it right the only difference is the price and the color so save some dough and go with red :)

Thnx alot for the answers. Im looking forward to see your post eunoia! Its been a month that i've been checking the hardware and have seen little to no price change [:(]. Somehow, the total price at newegg.ca is ~1190$ with shipping & handling, while tigerdirect.ca gives me ~1400$, which is way above my budget. Is this normal that the prices vary that much from 2 websites?

Im expanding my budget by 150$. I'll be using it to get a better GPU, the GTX 560 Ti (prolly going with either PNY/ASUS/EVGA/MSI)

Now im still hesitant when chosing the motherboard. I'll need some help.

GIGABYTE GA-Z68A-D3H-B3 (is 130$ too cheap?)

http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128502

MSI P67A-GD55 (150$)

http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813130573&Tpk=msi%20p67a-gd55

ASUS P8P67 (165$)

http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131705

Which one of these is the best bang for the buck mobo?

If u have a better mobo in the range of 130$-160$, feel free to suggest

If you can definitely go for the EVGA graphics card their warranty can't be beat.

I have had great luck with ASUS boards so I would probably go with the Asus board.
