I live in australia aswell. Your best bet would be msy but do notice that their customer service is poor. I have had excellent experience with www.pccasegear.com.au Excellent customer service and shipping and they have got a wide selection of parts aswell.

yes indeed, lol. Have you heard of msy? Do consider them, they've got the cheapest parts in Australia. I haven't seen any store beat msy price wise.

I'll have a look at MSY in the morning, well good night, going to bed because gotta get up early to finish two projects. Well, when I'm 15 it's over so I shouldn't worry

Thanks for the links mdtajghori!
