Default Australia vs Usa

Is ur US hardware (m/b,cpu,vid card, etc) compatible with the same Australian issued product ie our power supply is 240v vs 110v (i think)? hopefully the case power supply will b the only difference 7 & the parts might work? U think? Thanks.

They should all be the same, the power supply has a switch to specify the voltage.

What kind of budget do you have, and what components do you need? do you already have a monitor etc

I'd go for faster RAM so you have some head room for O/C. if you can aford 2xHD for Raid, do so. Go with the 6800 or above, anything less is old hat.
