The MB can be improved upon and for less cash http://us.ncix.com/p...acture=Gigabyte better spec.
Use some of the cash saved to improve the video card to a http://us.ncix.com/p...anufacture=ASUS benchmarks available @ http://www.videocard...=Radeon HD 7750

Thank you very much!

If we decide to cut back on something to save cash, I think the video card and the CPU would be the best place to cut for what the computer is needed for, do you think?

You are most welcome :thumbsup:

I would stick with the ASUS card that I suggested (unless we can find a better one for less cash) but swap the i7 CPU for the top i5 CPU http://www.newegg.ca...N82E16819116504 saves you $65 or the 2500k which will save you $75 http://www.newegg.ca...N82E16819115072 we may even better these prices if we shop around more

Thank you very much for your long-term help. Do you take Paypal Donations?

I think I'm all done, just take a look at my final list, if you don't mind; I've changed some stores from newegg to Future Shop (the Canadian "best buy"), as it is free shipping! I think the products I found are identical.

Mobo- Gigabyte Z77-D3H ----------------- http://www.futuresho...9cfbd579d79en02
CPU- Intel Core i7-2600k --------------- http://www.futuresho...564973a4b3cen02 (I was under budget, so we're splurging)
RAM- Corsair Vengeance CMZ8GX3M2A1600C - http://www.futuresho...462f0fcade9en02
PSU- CORSAIR Builder Series CX500 V2 --- http://www.futuresho...2aae2687728en02
Vid Card- ASUS HD7750-1GD5-V2 7750 ----- http://www.newegg.ca...SUS Radeon 7750
Bluray- LITE-ON Black IHBS112-04 ------- http://www.newegg.ca...#scrollFullInfo

Would http://www.newegg.ca...k=PGD38G1600ELK be a good alternative to the Corsair? It's on the list.
