I'm not sure about that website? It appears they are ripping people off? An NZXT Vulcan for $155? normally they are like $70.

I don't know what the currency is like over there...sorry

You have to do a few things for us...

Firstly, tell us what you're actually going to be doing with this computer.

Why are you building, what are you building from, do you currently have any parts that you are going to use, such as internal parts from an old build or external parts such as a keyboard and mouse, monitor, etc.

Why do you have to get everything from that site, are you willing to go out of that website?

That, and give us some insight into what you think you might want as well, show us you actually did some homework yourself as opposed to expecting us to do all the work and explaining for you. Don't just ask us to make you a build out of nowhere, help us help you!

yeah it is just that because i am not from the us i cant get stuff from newegg or any american based sites and the reason it is so expensive is because new zealand does not import many pc parts so we get it expensive. i am planning to build a pc for gaming. i am not in need of a monitor or anything so just the pc.

What kind of games do you play(or want to start playing), and what is the resolution of the monitor you currently have?

Alright so here's a "Rough Draft" of a gaming computer built on that website. Keep in mind it's a work in progress here, going to try to lower the price a bit.

Case: >LINK<

Motherboard: >LINK<

Processor: >LINK<

Memory: Check Edit

Graphics: Check Edit

Storage: >LINK<

Power Supply: >LINK<

DVD-Drive: >LINK<

OS: >LINK<

Price: $1550 ~Rough Draft Only~
---------------------------------------------------
All Price drops/Revisions will be posted below!

EDIT: Graphics: >LINK< $285 (Saved $174)

EDIT: Memory: >LINK< $110 (Saved $69)

New Price after edit(s): $1298 ~Getting Close

EDIT:
End of the road here... Cheapest rig you can get with quality parts on that site If you want to me to skimp on the quality of some of the components that's a different story.

Also important to check, are you going to be building this yourself or would you prefer them to build it? It really isn't all that hard and we can give you guidance on it, most everything is plug-and-play. You'll also save yourself some money and get better hardware, but if you want them to have all the liability of building, then its going to cost you.

For a gaming build, and at those crazy prices, I would cut the ram in half. 4GB would be good enough for gaming. Otherwise looks like a good build, sucks about the prices though!
