Is mATX a requirement?

And I would get this RAM:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820145098

2GB, and DDR2 675 is plenty fast with a X2 3600+

Edit: Australia... never mind. Sorry What website(s) do you use to shop?

Different approach here (all from this list here, except the BT: http://www.allneeds.com.au/BROCHURES/hot.pdf):

MoBo: Gigabyte ga-p35-s3 $152 Aus
CPU: Intel e2160 core 2 duo $118 Aus
Ram: Corsair 2 x 1gig 667 kit $110 Aus
Video: 8600gt 256meg $145 Aus
Cooling: Big Typhoon $70 Aus+

Total $595 Aus

And a better rig in my opinion.. 7600's in SLI isn't the best choice for $300. The 8600GT isn't that bad a card

And I mean... that 8600GT for $145 Aus is a GREAT price. If yuo want to, you can stick a pair of them in an SLI board, and it'll blow the 7600 pair away.

Upgrade option 1: pick an Asus P5N-E SLI for $199AUS, and add a second 8600GT, the total will be $787 Aus. (or you could start with one 8600, and add another one later).

Upgrade option 2: better CPU: E6550 for $217 Aus: Total will be $694 Aus. I think this would be my pick.... excellent CPU, a great Mobo (the interl P35 rocks), plenty RAM, and a pretty good video card (always can upgrade later.. not?)

This would be my pick for sure in your situation. You can upgrade the RAM later (I would pick 2GB DDR2 667 over 1GB of faster RAM at the moment). You for sure will have a great MoBo/CPU combination, with a more than decent video card (the 8600GT isn't as bad as people make it seem... it's a very nice card).

Where did you get that the PCI-E slot is only x8??? I am sure it's x16

yea that looks WAAAY better.... ummm, you wanna switch this over the the Intel section then chozart? I didnt realise that an Intel Build could be cheap

according to the .xls spreadsheet from allneeds, it says:

"Graphics interface: PCI-Express PCI: PCI_Express X16 (X8):..... "

I assume that means that its only X8??

The Gigabyte website doesn't say anything about x8..:
http://www.gigabyte.com.tw/Products/...ame=GA-P35C-S3

In the specs is actually mentions the PCI-E x16 slot specifically. Not sure where the x8 issue comes from.... I don't know of any modern motherboard with a single PCI-E x16 slot that runs at x8.... so, I stand with my opinion that it's a true x16 slot.
