Thread Starter 
Hi guys i'm upgrading my pc for my bday I have had many very helpful reccomendations from this forum but I want to make sure this is worth it before I do in these are the parts I'm thinking of getting :

http://www.playtech.co.nz/product.ph...detail&id=5210

http://www.playtech.co.nz/product.ph...detail&id=1486

http://www.playtech.co.nz/product.ph...detail&id=1748

but I need some reccomendations because i want to be sure i get the best bang for my buck so if your guys think there is a better combo please tell me.

yes i know the antec 900 is probably more than my sytem need but i plann to keep using the case in future builds and atlest it will be future proof

You could go with a Corsair HX520 from computer lounge if you're willing to fork out an extra $40 for modular cables.

Ok, as a kiwi my self and used all of these products i would say great case and good Fan good price for the fan, u are paying way to much for that case imho i would get the CENTURION 5 from C1COM.co.nz its about 150 better airflow and looks nice imo. PSU over priced!!! payed 120 for mine two years ago.

Get the 750Watt. for 180.

And you have a bit of money to get some ram saying about 40 bucks.

Being a kiwi is hard ae.

well i dont need to buy it from playtech i can also buy from either www.pbtech.co.nz or www.einfo.co.nz but i dont want to buy it online thanks for the suggestions but isn't 750 w psu a bit over kill and also how is the centrion better if it only has 2 80mm fans when the antec 900 has up to 5 120mm and a big 200mm?

I personally dont like play tech even though they are a 5 minutes walk form my house. C1 is your best bet im going to be honest and Antec 900's in NZ are rip offs price just doesnt jusity it.

Well the element is a great psu fbut for another 20 bucks you pull double the amperare and the PSU is old. you can pick up a $70 raidmax that has 19A 19A.

i'm not sure i dont really like buying online and i'm not sure all three of those shops are close to me and I would prefere going to the shop and picking it up myself but i'm not sure about the psu because the silverstone is what playtech reccomended and the said the cables will reach and everything i'm not sure

Don't listin to them. I've talked to them and i personally dont like them.

The 750watt is a higher end model so it will be better, cables londer etc more reliable.

yea but what i'm saying about the 750 is that isn't it a bit overkill my system is currently running a 300 w and most people reccomend 500w and the 750 is more expensive

Getting a graphics card (some day soon hopefully) will bump up your power requirements rather quickly. Best to use the PSU on hand rather than to buy a new one later on.

Bang for buck, you should consider more ram. Its cheap now and it makes a huge difference from 1gb. Next would be graphics IMO.
