This is amazon that ships internationally only: [ame="http://www.amazon.com/International-Shipping-Direct/b?ie=UTF8&node=230659011"]Amazon.com: International Shipping[/ame]

I found this thread that lists heaps of Aussie sites: http://www.overclock.net/faqs/28861-opinion-where-purchase-pc-components-australia.html

Thanks again for all your help:)

I haven't quite got my PSU yet (if you read my previous posts you'll understand). I've been looking around on some Aussie sites and I've found this: http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=15_535&products_id=17191 Will this suit my rig/is it a good PSU? Thanks guys.

Alright what do you think about this then: [ame="http://www.amazon.com/Corsair-Memory-Compatible-Certified-CMPSU-600CX/dp/B0044R93S0/ref=sr_1_7?ie=UTF8&qid=1306749078&sr=8-7"]Amazon.com: Corsair Memory Cx Series Compatible With Intel Core I7 and Core I5 ATX 600 Energy Star Certified Power Supply CMPSU-600CX: Electronics[/ame], btw why did you dislike the previous one I posted?

Oh, on PCCaseGear (Australia) you're looking at the Antec Neo Eco 450C or Corsair CX430 V2 for $59. Those are both pretty good budget units and known commodities. There aren't really good alternatives.

Neo Eco 520C for $69 if you want room to upgrade to a top-tier GPU and would like two PCIe power connectors and not have to use a molex adapter.

I wouldn't buy it. Not only do I not recognize this brand, but its +12V capacity is 384W which means that this is a 520W peak-rated unit. So with a 384W +12V capacity, it's better to think of it as a 400-430W power supply (and probably not a very good one at that).

This PSU's +12V capacity is also only approximately 74% of the total wattage rating. As one rule of thumb [of many], avoid PSUs that have a +12V rating of less than 80% of the total wattage rating.

There are better PSUs out there than Corsair's CX "Builder Series".

For example, all of these are better:
  • 450W Antec Neo ECO for $59.00
  • 520W Antec Neo ECO for $69.00
  • 520W Antec High Current Gamer for $85.00

I'm not recommending Antec, but instead I'm recommending these specific units. To be honest, the brand name is almost always irrelevant unless it's a brand I've never heard of (especially if its +12V is less than 80% of the total wattage rating, such as just 74%).

I'm sorry that I didn't shop anywhere else, but I looked at a couple of the other stores mentioned in that thread, and all I found were higher prices. I also didn't shop on Amazon.com because for some reason I have a bit of difficulty sorting through power supplies on their site.

By the way, what is your budget for the PSU?

Your system will love it! Internally, the 520W Neo ECO is a SeaSonic S12II.
