Well, I'll try and muck around with some builds, I'll start having fun now, I'll post it later.
By the way, I'll be using:

Centre com
http://www.centrecom.com.au/catalog/...ducts_id=36102

Now unless I am missing something, that is a $700 difference.

Even the lower ones are like double the price.
The price difference is because centrecom is based in Aussie land, not the US of A
