    They are based out west, (brick and mortar stores) but their online store is based from the NE Calgary depot and yes, they'll have parts.. they are a huge company. The $8.99 shipping is across Canada!! so just the 15% HST unfortunately..but the cheap shipping makes it easier to swallow!

    The other build is better components for minimal price difference

    Ya I see some differences now, the processor is not the 'K' version, the case I dont really like either but all in all it dont seem bad. Also, i am looking forward to actually building the PC, another thing off the bucket list. Have no idea about installing Windows or anything like that but hopefully its not too complicated.

    Just adding stuff the the cart on various sites and I have a question about the MB, is this the unit specified in my build, it doesn't state ATX. Also, had to change the case to another model Corsair as the previous model is sold out in a few places

    I am building it on ME but the cooling fan is $42 there but $23 on amazon with free shipping. Just trying to keep the price as low as possible.

    Another question, I am now picking the RAM, how important is the frequency, what we have chosen in my build is 2133Mhz but for very little more it seems you can get 3200 Mhz.

    Well thats true and it would be nice to have it all come together.

    Video card, ME dont seem to carry the Extreme Gaming version of the GTX 1060 but they do have the Windforce version, links for both below. I can only see minor differences in the numbers and the Windforce is quite a bit shorter. Thoughts on this please....are there other options around the same price....maybe Radeon?

    Truthfully, I'm an MSI fanboy, pay a tiny bit more, but I like them. Used MSI for years and they've always been awesome.

    WOW, all parts added to cart in ME and my total with tax is $1817. May have to reconsider buying all at ME in an attempt to shave off a little....lol. They are sold out of the 950 Pro SSD as well.

    they are out of stock on 2 of the 4 versions of the 1060 6G card.

    What the damn hell? It does say ATX.

    Intel Skylake processors technically support up to 2133Mhz. More than that is supposed to cause instability.

    https://ark.intel.com/products/88191/Intel-Core-i5-6600K-Processor-6M-Cache-up-to-3_90-GHz

    Some people say it doesn´t happen. I wouldn´t risk it. The difference is not that big.

    Don´t worry about that. Think of it as a box that prevents your stuff to get dusty. No big deal.

    The biggest difference there are base clocks and boost clocks. Everything else is circumstancial.

    Okay this has been 4 pages of this thread, I think you have a good idea what to do. If MX is out of stock, look elsewhere, if it's too expensive look elsewhere..not much else we can do to assist.

    Best of luck

    Invalid statement there. Many people buy faster ram and have no issues at all. You'll mostly find out that the B and H series motherboards will only support up to 2133mhz ram but the better boards will support faster speeds.

    Do yourself a favor and don't even get all heated again cause someone disagreed with you. You did it in another thread and it makes you come off as whiny and childish.
