I had this build ready to go and buy for today (December 26th, 2014) but after all the deals the price had dropped about 100 dollars and now I want to do last minute upgrades. I however don't know where to put it! Any help is greatly appreciated! Thanks! PS. This is canadian money! http://ca.pcpartpicker.com/p/gz63dC

Time is of the essence, so I'm just going to suggest some "common" upgrades. They might not "fit" if you aren't planning to use the computer for what I would assume you are planning to use it for (gaming, some work).

You might want to upgrade to a Samsung 850 EVO/Pro SSD for the various 3D NAND tech bonuses. It's +20~50$ for the 120GB versions (EVO/Pro). If you forgo the better cooler (mentioned next), you could probably increase the SSD size to ~250GB as well.

If you plan on OverClocking (since it's a "k" series), I would go with either a better Air Cooler (such as the Noctua D14/D15 or Phanteck TC14PE [various colors, various prices]) or All-In-One Water Cooler (Corsair H100i is pretty popular). They're around +70~80$.

For example: http://ca.pcpartpicker.com/p/x9KkRB & http://ca.pcpartpicker.com/p/LM33jX

Also, you have a mouse listed but not a keyboard, so maybe a new keyboard? Or how about some speakers, headphones, microphone...

Hope this helps.
