    Yeah, you're right, I switched out a few unnecessary things and levelled the price a bit, wonder if I should go for an i5 instead, please let me know.

    P.S, I think I've heard about those Graphics Cards, aren't they the 1080's and 1070's? I don't know much about them...

    yeah thats true the new and coming 1080s and 1070s is much better and has a lower price than the GTX 980 Ti when they come out and many says that a i7 is not that much needed so if you want to cut down the price more or for some other reason then you could take a i5 and maybe upgrade to a i7 when needed (CPUs is not my strong side)

    Thanks man, I appreciate it, I've done some research into them and I'm excited for em'. Still don't know when they're coming out in Canada though, guess I'll just have to wait, or order them from the U.S. Thanks again!
