Time for a new computer - Advice needed

Recommended Posts

I've decided its time for a new computer.  Looking at a high powered gaming rig.  I'm considering the following, but I am also open to a custom build.  Any input welcome!

NCIX  is a local computer shop I've bought my last 3 computers from.  I like and I trust them.

I took a look at that site.  Problem is I'm on the west coast of Canada.  Once you add in exchange, shipping, duty & taxes, there really isn't much savings.  NCIX has a store that's a 10 minute drive from where I work, so the convenience factor is really high.

This is what I've pretty much settled on, although I am considering switching the ASUS GTX 1080 for an MSI Seahawk 1080.
