Maybe this (these are CDN prices)

Motherboard + Q6600 CPU - 350
4 x 1GB - 70 after MIR or 4 x 1GB - 60 after MIR Both are 800MHZ (don't think i should oc yet)
XFX GeForce 8600 GT XXX - 80 after MIR
PSU 500W - 80

w/ 13% tax (not taking into account the rebates) = 650 ~~

I can probably go even cheaper with the PSU
*Edit* looks like i might need to get a cpu fan too.

I highly suggest you buy from NCIX. Since it appears you live in Ontario, you won't be charged PST ordering from NCIX. Just a heads up their new sale will be up 7ish PST. Also they price match any competitor, I have personally saved hundreds with that feature, if you need help on how to use it let me know (it sweetens every deal :)).

What are you using this computer for? I don't suggest that combo deal as Intel's chipsets are much better then nVidia's.
Since their sale start late tonight, I'd suggest waiting for that as there are good RAM kits that go on sale for $40 or less.
