thanks for the quick reply..yeh hopefully those parts ARE down in price later, these prices are australian dollars:
2GB (2 x 1GB) Kingston PC3200 DDR Memory Kit - CL3 $349.80
Leadtek GeForce 7800GTX 256MB PCI-Express Graphics Card $786.50
AMD Athlon 64 X2 3800+ Socket939 CPU Retail With Dual-Core $544.50
ASUS A8N-SLI Premium nForce4-SLI Socket939 DDR ATX Mainboard With SATAII/Dual RAID/FireWire & Dual Gigabit LAN $291.50
Unfortunatly those are cheapest of the bunch
also i want a 500gb hdd and 80gb sata, which totals $584
