Wow, some of that stuff is mighty expensive. I'd look a www.newegg.com for better prices. I'm in a networking class right now so I can't help yah' out at the moment. I'm sure others will do so throughout the day though.

They don't ship to Australia. And I think the prices in Will's website are in aussie dollars.

Default Au Dollars

I'm in Australia and Jantechcomputers is an australian site so the prices are in Aus Dollars. The prices i found here are pretty good compared to other aussie sites.
With the graphic cards i would like to know if a XpertVision ATI Radeon X800 (core 392MHz) 256MB 256bit DDR3
http://www.jantechcomputers.com.au/p...=10483&cID=291
is better and by how much than the card i already have chosen the XpertVision GF 6600GT 256MB 128bit DDR3
http://www.jantechcomputers.com.au/p...=11725&cID=291.
I would also like to know where i can get any good guides for building the PC, i would prefer ones where i can download it instead of having to load each page on the internet.
Thanks for the advice.
