I agree with everyone else - a solid selection of parts. A few thoughts:
With Ram so cheap at the moment have you considered getting 8 Gb?

Also, I would suggest using a good cpu cooler from the start CM Hyper212+, etc.
And, if you can afford it, an SSD for the boot drive - even a small (< 60Gb) "slow" one really speeds up lots of things (but not FPS sadly).

AUS$710.19 is the build total that you came up with?

Or that's the total amount of money you can spend (it seems to arbitrary for this) on everything? Will you budget be at all higher in November? I know you said you'll be getting the case sooner, right?

And the monitor you are using, is it 1080p or lower in resolution?

That will be how much money I have to spend by November
Monitor is 1080p DVI

I would wait until november, and ask the question again, a lot could change from now until then.

I cant believe that crossfire 6950s only pull 329 watts under load. I though I would need at least an 800 watter to run those comfortably, especially with an overclocked CPU. Han anyone actually run xfire 6950s with a 750 watt PSU?

Panda - I would personally recommend the cooler master storm scout for your case. It is in the same product line as the enforcer, however i believe it looks better and is much more durable. Just something to check in to, go with your preference however Good luck with the build mate, I wish I had gotten this many suggestions when I was building my first comp! lol. Here is a guide from Maximumpc that kind of goes through the step by step basics of how to put a comp together. It is a guide with pictures, pretty good detail, and it is also using current hardware and techniques. Im sure you could find many tutorials on youtube, but I think this is a trustworthy guide to start off with. I think with that guide and some help from OCN, you will be in good shape, especially by November! Good luck mate!

Thanks for the suggestions
I was originally going to go with the scout but I read at alot of places that some graphics cards would fall out of the screwless design clamp so I thought I may as well go the enforcer because I enjoy the tough look it has.

Can any of your current stuff be reused? New gear is nice, but money saved on a new psu(for ex) could be put into upgrading or adding other pieces.

You asked about building - a really critical thing to do right is applying the thermal paste to the cpu. Read up on that. And don't build it on the carpet. Most stuff is pretty esd proof these days, but don't test your own stuff.

I think the Enforcer is the better case anyway - it looks cooler, has better cable management, and the 200mm fan up front will flood the system with more cool air than the Scout's 140mm. The side panel window is also a solid piece on the Enforcer, whereas the Scout has the fan holes. I prefer the look of the enforcer's window, but also that it creates a wind tunnel.

Try and get that budget as high as you can in the next 3 months Panda - every dollar helps, do whatever side jobs you can.
