Got my client a 3570k cpu, a z77 mobo, 16mbs ram, 1 tb wd black hd, a 14x bluray burner, a gtx660ti video card, a 850w hx corsair psu, a fractal design r4 case, a 24" hd monitor for under 1600can with our 12% tax, and a lot of shipping charges. I know you can get stuff cheaper in the states, please don't reiterate that. We can't up here, period. I'm just trying to figure out what else would help him out the most for the least amount of cost. And no, ssds don't do that. He will have to live with this system for a long time. What will he need? And currently he plays Diablo2 on a pentium D, and is happy with that.
