If you live outside BC, you won't pay PST on your order, which is why I like ordering from NCIX, in addition, they will price match all canadian competitors.
NCIX is good to deal with, the first order you make usually takes a bit longer to process due to fraud checking. I've spent at least $4000 there within the past year over the course of at least 8 orders, I have not had any issues yet aside from boxing day, but that is to be expected at that time of the year.
If you order through NCIX, PM this price. The price match button will be in your cart.http://www.directcan...anufacture=EVGA
Unless you are gaming on a 24" or greater monitor the gains are very small in terms of FPS. Considering this is your first time overclocking, I suggest the GA-P35-DS3L if you don't want to run SLI.
If you are getting a quad, I personally suggest the Q6700, I'm thinking about getting one myself.
As far as memory goes, I suggest Mushkin. There is an active Rep on the NCIX forums if you encounter any issues, also the voltages are much lower for the majority of Mushkin RAM, so your RAM runs cooler. It also overclocks great.
Lastly, I suggest XFX over BFG due to XFX's superior warranty. If you order through NCIX, be sure to price match everything to get the best price possible.
