Alright, so this Home Office PC (which I talked about last week) is coming a little bit closer to reality. I appreciated your help and would have loved to take your advice guys… but being from the windswept glacial regions of the North (Canada), NewEgg was not an option for me. I went with TigerDirect, and below is my shopping list.

    One Acer X223WBD 22″ Widescreen LCD Monitor – 5ms, 2500:1, (WSXGA+) 1680×1050, DVI, Black
    XFX GeForce 8200 Motherboard CPU Bundle – AMD Athlon 64 X2 4600+ Processor 2.40GHz Retail
    Two Hitachi Deskstar 7K1000 1000GB Hard Drives – 7200RPM, 32MB, Serial ATA-300, OEM
    OCZ SLI-Ready Dual Channel 4096MB PC6400 DDR2 800MHz Memory (2×2048MB)
    Power Up Black 336 ATX Mid-Tower Case with Front USB, Audio Ports and 450-Watt Power Supply
    Ultra X-Wind Aluminum Socket K8/AM2 CPU Cooling Fan
    HP DVD1070i 20X SATA Multiformat DVD Writer – With Lightscribe Retail
    Brother MFC Printer
    SATA Cables

To find out how much I paid for each item and to understand why I picked some elements rather than others, hit the link at the bottom of this article.

Also, you might notice there’s no keyboard, mouse or webcam. I could have bought these right away, but I’ll wait for the mail-in rebates. I got my own for now.

    Don't mean to throw a wrench in your cogs, but uhh, http://www.newegg.ca.

    NewEgg is available in Canada. TigerDirect is probably pretty competitively priced, though. That, and I've noticed that Newegg.ca doesn't carry the same stock, it's mostly the same, but they're missing a lot as well.

    Ahhaha That's awesome. Well, the order's been made, and it wasn't too expensive. Now I know.
