My personal corrections ****. The GTX670 should be out soon with a price of 500 AUD id say, and its definitely a better choice than a GTX580 nowadays.
I'd correct the monitor also, but since I cant find a proper price for the Dell u2412m I'll just leave that one you decided. The prices there in AU are damn expensive, and the U2412m price is close to the 400 AUD :/. You could pick up an LG ips monitor but has less inches and I dont know if you want it to be that big or you just picked it up like this totally random as you said because it was cheap enough.
The rest of the rig is OK, you'll be fine with everything and dont worry, those 550W are enough for the whole computer even if you turn to overclock it.

Thank you for the tip on the GTX670, however I would like to order this build as soon as possible so I will stick with the 580. Yeah, damn expensive for sure. Yup, it was totally random, just hit the cheapest 24 inch. Will find out what the optimal size for his setup is and adjust it or leave it accordingly. Will check the price of the LG IPS monitors. +rep

Also i doubt the 670 will be 500 so i wouldnt really be waiting on that, even if it was 500 you would still be just over the budget anyway. Other then that, you'll have a pretty decent build smile.gif. Good luck mate.
Also, i'd say stick with a 24 inch, its a perfectly fine size imo.

Appreciate that, changed to a Corsair TX-650V2. Yup, won't be waiting on it simply because I'd like to order it asap. Thanks smile.gif +rep

Good suggestion.. I feel more comfortable about using PCCG over MSY (never used MWave) as I have had many successful and speedy shipments from PCCG and I would like to order from one place. Thanks though. +rep

I agree. I have previously shopped around for individual parts, but for a complete build I prefer using PCCG.

Thank you for the link, I will add it to my list of suppliers to shop around when I buy individual parts, however for this build I will stick with PCCG. smile.gif
