In *my* honest opinion, sell the blood to get the better PSU. Nothin' like investing in 1500$ worth of hardware to have something crap out on you because you picked up the bargain barrel PSU.
While I don't think Rosewill's are the worst I agree that you should NEVER skimp on a PSU and therefore not use a Rosewill. Use AT LEAST the PSU I linked. Good alternatives would be an Ultra, Antec (I love them), etc.

OTOH, I've never had the fancy pantsy logotech mouse and keyboards, so I couldn't really comment on their "necessity" (or lack there of) of said components.. but you might consider purchasing more economical versions of said components and invest the money in something like a better graphics card.

All the Corsair PSUs are OEMed by I think either Enhance or someone else... bottom line, all of them are top quality power supplies. I have a Corsair 620w in my future build right now.

I agree. The G15 and such are 'nice to haves' if you have enough left in the budget. I absolutely love my Razer mouse and keyboard they were among the very last things I bought for my sig rig.

Gracias. I just read it a couple days ago again on Jguru, but couldn't remember who it was for the life of me ten minutes ago.

did some poking around down under...

Case: Cooler Master CM 690
MoBo: Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3L
CPU: Intel E2220
GPU: Gainward BLISS 9600 GT
PSU: Corsair HX 620W
HDD: Seagate 320GB ST3320620AS 7200.10
RAM: G.Skill 4GB F2-6400CL6D-4GBMQ DDR2 PC2-6400
TV card Nope, not now. Later purchase. (nice birthday gift?)
DVD RW: Lite-On DH-20A3S 20x Dual Layer Black Serial-ATA DVD Writer

Monitor: BenQ G Series G2000W-B 20" Widescreen LCD
Speakers: 180W Stereo Multimedia Speakers
Keyboard/Mouse: Logitech Deluxe 250 Black Desktop, OEM with Keyboard & Mouse

That all for $1,580 AUS, minus $15.18 AUS online discount, and free super saving shipping (freight... not sure how long that takes in Australia )

Much better core rig. Parts like the TV tuner, better keyboard/mouse/speakers are very easy to add, and make nice gifts. I strongly suggest to put your money in the core parts as much as you can and save on the accessories. Also, there isn't much difference between 20" and 22". They both run the same resolution, and the 20" will thus be a bit sharper in image quality (smaller pixels.)

Wow thanks guys! You've gone to alot of trouble to help me + rep. And thanks especially to chozart, you'll make my friend rather happy i really wish i could buy from the egg, might have to move to the US, since our economy sucks and is getting worse under our new bloody government.. Yeah it took us about 20 minutes just to get that list going. There's a few sites i use, but i used shopbot.com as that usually seeks out the cheapest prices for the part your after. Again guys, thanks heaps for the help i'll keep posting with updates, and once this guys pc is up n running im sure he'd love to become a member

Holy crap man! Any idea how much a fan controller will cost me in Instanbul at the end of the month?
