I'm about to purchase some parts today, mainly the CPU and MOBO. How does it look? Anything that needs changing before I buy anything? Thanks in advance! :)

I'm sure you'll get a suggestion of "Get an SSD". Just ready yourself for it.

some cheap brands at play here, but overall looks okay to me.

I'll get the suggestion out of the way. Get an SSD. Bestbuy Canada and Memoryexpress sell them for about 115 dollars for the samsung 120 gig ones. Just use it for the Operating System and only the Operating System.

That way if you need to do a wipe of your computer you don't need to worry about re-installing windows

I'm seriously thinking of getting one myself when I get the funds

Like what exactly? I'm on a budget of $850 CAD after discounts from price matching MemoryExpress but quality is important to me.

I was really hoping that I could get away with it considering my budget.

One way around the budget I have found, is if you currently have a computer you can re-use some of the current parts.

For example, my computer is about 4 years old, I'm currently in the process of getting parts sent to me to build a new computer from scratch. I'm re-using my 750 gig hard-drive as well as my dvd drive which saves me about 80 dollars

Obviously you might not be able to re-use ram and video cards if it is an older pc, but a computers hard-drive should be ok for temp. use until you get a bit more funds for a better hard-drive; just double check with people to see if your old hard-drive is compatible with your new computer
