This is what I was going to get, but I decided to update my home theater first instead. Since then I haven't really been following what parts have been coming out and what parts have dropped in price. What's happened since April that I should know? I heard there's a new Intel CPU but I haven't heard much about it.

I probably won't get the stuff for at least another month, maybe even two, so let me know what's coming up as well please.

Also, I'll be using Dolphin and PCSX2 a lot and I want to be able to play newer games at the highest settings.

That's a very good list. I'm not up on Canadian prices, but I believe you could find a 7970 for less than $440 with a bit of shopping. You could also go with the i5-3570k if you wanted to save $100. Otherwise, nice job choosing parts.
