Thread Starter 
Well my mate said that he wanted a new pc, and that his budget was 1200NZD + screen, an this is what ive come up with. what do you think, bear in mind its NZD so 1200 is 900USD, what do you think?

That looks fairly improved now actually!
Does ASUS M4A87TD EVO or Gigabyte GA-870A-UD3 sell for a similar price there? They're both better boards at similar prices here

asus = $20 dollars more and gigabyte = $40 more

Going by USD being 3/4 the cost...... that's actually a fairly big gap. Must be the prices there. Though the CPU is only a 95W TDP, I usually don't recommend most 2010-made MSI motherboards for VRM quality, pricing and other such reasons.

the guy that im building the computer for could really in theory use a $50 board, but went this one as it has 2 * pcie slots and was the cheapest over here

psu is overkill for single gtx 460.
go for 500W model only.

if your buddy will go for sli then the current one is fine.
