my budget idea is to buy things economically....the consoles are a bitch so i usually get them...and use game fly to play games that are good for one sitting...next i got a computer gaming chair that is great of PC.....but is also comfortable for playing console games.....next those NOX-AUDIO PC gaming headsets come with a conversion cable to play on consoles....plus good for ipods.......and i guess learning that not everything is for free and sometimes the classics are good...
i know this is a old yt video but i go for this mobo: BIOSTAR A785GE 46.99$ cpu: AMD Athlon II X2 240 2.8ghz 60$ psu: Linkworld LPG2-43-P4-IO 630W 25.99$ ram: 2x of WINTEC AMPX 2GB ddr2 800 61.98$ hdd: Seagate Barracuda 500gb 7200 rpm 54.99$ gpu: HIS HD 4890 Turbo+ 1GB 209.99$ dvdcd: LITE-ON Black 18x 17.99$ case: Linkworld 313-06-C2228 20.99$ whole price is 498.92$ i went hard on the graphics and ram xD but this is a decent good gaming rig
not the best idea to spend more on ram than the mobo

Ha I'm gonna be doing the same build but with a 9800GT.
You can get better ram for $30. Also, get the E7300 instead as it performs better for same price.
over a course of 8-9 months 700 is not that much and i decied to do a E7300 and a 9800 gtx. And yes with this baby at 4 ghz it will be flyin
im not sure about them shipping to canada but im sure they do
