A 950 might be unnecessary, he may want it for the future but might as well get a 920..

Ok, So I spent a few hours today, looking through NewEgg and your guys comments, and I came up with this.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819115202 279.99

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811103010 130.98

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820146777 119.99

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817341016 59.99

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813188049 229.99

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130433 189.99

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835103055 54.99

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...16822145215&cm 54.99

And it only comes to $1655.3523 NZ. And i'll buy a monitor/keyboard through my mums work. Is there any thing I'm missing or anything that's bad.

Thanks again.

*sigh* Can't ship to NZ.

The Intel Processor is priced at $1200 NZ. The graphics card, around $900.

I want to live in America now

Do you know anyone in the states that can buy the parts here for you then ship them over? Shipping would be a little pricey but I'm sure it's a lot better than paying $1200 NZ for a core i7 920, which is absolutely outrageous.

Hold on that is not gonna work you got an intel core 2 quad and an AM3 socket motherboard.

You will need to get a socket 775 motherboard that one will not work with your processor.

You will also need to make sure that the mother board supports DDR3 ram as well because not many 775 socket mother boards support DDR3.

You might be better off just buying an AMD processor if the mother board and ram need to be shipped back. The Phenom II x3 720 black edition processors are really nice and might be a little cheaper than the core 2 quad you picked. That way instead of having to either return the mother board and the ram or get a more expensive 775 socket motherboard with DDR3 support you could just return the processor and get a different one. One return shipping and saving money on the processor is much better than returning 2 items or paying more for a mother board that supports DDR3.

Go for AMD processors and mobo.
I recommend Phenom II Dual or Quad.

4G DDR2 SDRAM with low memory timing or DDR3 SDRAM is suitable for gaming.

GTX 260+ or HD 4850+ is good for GPU.

You should be able to get all those for under $1350 US.
