like i said, if you can afford it, if not then go 560ti, also really nice card. there are some sick benchies you can google to actually see the difference between newer cards.

so far , ive been researching my local stores http://pricespy.co.nz/list.php?l=38531&view=c is what i comeup with (pricespy is like pcpart thingy except for new zealanders

that actually looks pretty good. i just checked your exchange rates... it would seem that computer parts are extremely expensive in NZ even after accounting for conversion. seems a little wierd.. govt tax the #$% out of imports or something?

so considering your situation i think your doing good with that build, should work well for you. if you can squeeze a few more dollars in put it in graphics card. depending what games you want to play at what resolution, that card might leave you wanting a bit more power.

for 90$ more (~70 real dollars)

is alot closer to being able to handle the best games these days. a bit more memory, faster chip.

if i were you and i couldnt throw the extra $$ in, id consider cheaping out on the case/power supply a bit more (unless u plan to SLI in teh future) if possible, also you could probably find a dvd drive for free. or borrow one. from work or something. then not give it back. just saying. and then buy graphics.

my question for everyone..


why not a core i7 920 instead?

6gb at triple channel over 8gb at dual channel?

btw, the new zealand dollar is a bit high atm so prices might look a bit high but they seem fine, take into account shipping that costs a bit :\, and if i ignore the dodgy stores and only look at the local ones i trust the price comes to around 1.6k nzd (which atm is exactly 1337USD LOL)
