Default New Build - Opinions and reccomendations.

Case: Antec NINE-HUNDRED - $195.00
http://www.scorptec.com.au/product/20609

CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E6600 - $470.00
http://www.scorptec.com.au/product/19782

RAM: Corsair TWIN2X2048-6400C4 2GB - $499.00
http://www.scorptec.com.au/product/19497

Hard Drive: Seagate 250GB SATA-II 7200.10RPM - $119.00
http://www.scorptec.com.au/product/20353

Mobo: Gigabyte GA-965P-DQ6 P965 $349.00
http://www.scorptec.com.au/product/19645

Monitor: Samsung 205BW-Black $495.00
Might cut back to a 19 inch to save some money - See what happens.
http://www.scorptec.com.au/product/20547

2 x DVD Burner: Samsung SH-S182D $110.00
http://www.scorptec.com.au/product/20697

PSU: No Idea - $200?

Total: $2597.00 Including postage ($20 per part, rough guess) and $200 roughly for the PSU. This is about as much I wanted to spend ($2000-2500) so I'm a bit over.

Oh by the way, the reason I haven't put a video card in is cause' I'm not going to game or run Vista just yet. Will wait for the GeForce 8 Series cards to come down in price.

I just want to make sure everything is compatible and just get some over all opinions and recommondations on this build. Where I could improve on things, or cut back. You get the idea.

As always, opinons and feedback welcome and appreciated.

Yeah, I'm going to go Nvidia but I don't want a vid card at the moment, no need for one as of yet. I might downgrade the RAM like you suggested, maybe to 2GB.

Edit: Hold up - the RAM is 2GB...

Double Edit: This is my new RAM I reckon. http://www.scorptec.com.au/product/18448. A little loss in performance, but that's okay.

If NewEgg doesn't ship to Australia, check out the Dell monitors. They're a little bit cheaper than the one you had picked out.

No worries man. Thanks for trying anyway.

So the total now comes to $2887 with everything, including a keyboard+mouse, and a 650w Seasonic PSU.

I'll keep looking at some more online stores as well as ebay and see if I can't get some parts a little cheaper.
