PSU- get a good one from OCZ or PCP&C- 600w+ (they don't have any on that website though)
RAM- get some better one's like this

That mobo is horrible. Get teh 965P-s3 instead. Its a monster of an overclocker. Rest looks good. AND MAN THAT STORE IS EXPENSIVE!!

www.staticice.com.au - USE IT

http://www.staticice.com.au/cgi-bin/....cgi?q=965p-s3 the mobo.

Personally, I got everything from www.cpl.net.au but www.nintek.com.au and www.scorptec.com.au are also very good.

Ok ill make them changes, not sure wat OCZ PSU to get though, would the 600gXSSLI 600W be enough? Thanks for the help.

EDIT: I made the changes, and worked the price out and its gonna be $1950 just for the mobo, ram, CPU, sound card and graphics card, so ill get the better mobo but i havnt got that kind of money for that, plus i need to get the PSU still and i dont know how much thats gonna cost to get it ordered, so thnx anyway

Ok, ill order that when i get around to it, im still deciding whether or not to get it, my only other thing would be go for this:http://www.zipcomputers.com.au/store...uct=SYS-AMD-GR

thats my other alternative, although my parents wont let me run 2 computers, so i supose if they wont ill just get the parts and use the case i have now.
