You can actually get a Nice rig for that amount. However we cant just build you one here. You need to pretty much do it yourself and come back and we can give you further advice on it.

whats that around now 10% more than it would be in american?
so like... a bit over $1800 usd?
yea you can get a REALLY nice rig for that amount. personally i would never spend that much, but if you want really nice components that you dont have to mod at all, sure spend $100 on a case instead of $30 and modding it like i did, plus it'll look a lot nicer too.

personally, i'd get a gigabyte DS3 motherboard (965G rather than 965P because G comes with integrated video) paired with an e6300 and a really nice cooler, and just use integrated video until you get a GFX card that supports directX 10.

pair that with a really nice 2*1gb kit of memory and then save an extra bit for the video card purchase later on.

but, what do you plan on using the machine for anyways? in my opinion the e6300 is the best thing you can buy right now, considering the performance you get after an overclock compared to the price that it costs...
