I just got a 16.5 inch giant prodigy frame



what components do you think i should use. I'm looking to spend maybe 200-300 for the parts. I'm thinking of full XT drivetrain but what breaks/wheels should i get? Anyone know a good site which sells build kits? Or i saw a Giant Yukon with disc breaks for $350 at the LBS should i canabolize that bike to put on my frame?

In Asia Shimano parts are like half of the price in Canada. I stocked up when I was over there.
