Most stores don't have them anymore. some dont even carry anything lower than the 950 now. the 930 is basically the same as a 920, except that its default multi is 21, so its 2.8GHz vs. the 920's 2.66GHz. if you still want a 920 i recommend Ebay. that's where i got mine

can you link the site you wish to use and a budget? but would also help to know exactly what you want to use it for.

I dont buy stuff in Aus but doing a quick check your spending nearly as much as it would be to go to a sandy bridge rig which will give much better performance.

The psu you have selected is total overkill by the way 500w is plenty for a single gpu setup.

I'm buying from this site/store:
www.centrecom.com.au
The "custom PC builder" here is an easy way to see all parts imo

And my budget is ~$1800 AUD
The computer is going to be mainly for gaming.

right if your after a gaming rig, first off we change the cpu to a 2500k saving you $65 it will outperform the older gen i7 in all games.

change the motherboard to a 1155 socket im going to say p8p67 pro from asus roughly the same cost as the mobo you had.

Ram: 4-8gb of ddr3 1600mhz, timings will not matter and for gaming faster will also not matter, go for 8gb if you play memory heavy games like CIV or other RTS go for 4gb if you really need to cut the budget.

Graphics card wise, do you have a company preference? honestly I feel the 580 while it is slightly more powerful than the 6970 it really doesn't offer enough to compensate for the ~$200 extra it costs. If you must go green then I suggest the 570. just my 2c though others will disagree

the 650w antec earth-watts psu will be more than you need for a single gpu set-up I think they are pretty decent psu's

hard drive spinpoint f3 or cav black.

think that lot should come out around $1620 according to my cart. less if you change the graphics card.

this would all be better unless he eventually wants to x-fire or SLI, as X58 has better pci-x setups

though i bet your answer would then be to wait until Ivy Bridge.......

Also this argument sounds familiar, though i usually hear it from AMD fanboys. An intel fanboy bashing intel products. lol wut

8x/8x for single core graphics cards provides plenty of bandwidth anyway would be my actual response, no point buying an processor and mother board that is already out dated when for cheaper you can buy the new generation tbh.

as for fan boys lol, just buy for best performance/price.

Was going to suggest a few things but I read through the rest of the thread and they've already been said.

1. 1600MHz RAM
2. i5 2500k with P67 MoBo
3. And to add onto Dr216's graphics card suggestion, it may be wise to save yourself the $200 for something like an SSD? and get the AMD Radeon HD6970 unless you want PhysX and Cuda then 570/80 is fine.
( I personally don't think PhsyX is worth it though.)


also have you had a look at www.pccasegear.com ?
Best customer service ever and a fantastic user friendly website.

Edit: I built my sig rig a little over 3 weeks ago for $1,100. if that's any indication of what you can do with your budget of $1,800.

Now you have all truly confused me :S
I don't have anything against ATI gpu's, but I still prefer nVidia for some reason
PhysX, I don't need it...
Different mobo? I don't really know whether I'll want to SLI or Xfire in the future...
A motherboard is a little more "uneasily replaced" so a better motherboard is what I'd prefer.
I am planning on replacing the memory with a 6gb 1333MHz CL9

And thanks for all the help so far too, guys

atm ATIs gpus, especially the 6950/70 are the best performance/price graphics cards and can handle anything a 580 can unless CUDA (meaning programing on a gpu)

as for the RAM, get 8G(2x4G), cuz 1155 MBs are dual channel; and more ram is better

See sig rig, You save some using that site you listed. Hurts me to know that my P8P67 Deluxe is 300 (B3) while I got Rev 1 for 220 at launch. I was going to get the Asus PRO but I paid a little more for te extra VRM for OCing.

If sticking to nVidia, 570 GAINSWARD or ASUS DirectCU II has the have the same VRM (6+2) as a 580 if you choose to save some money. It rivals the 6970 in a single setup.

Other mention: Whatever CPU you get, buy an aftermarket cooler such as : 212+, Dark Knight, Noctua D14, H50/60/70.

See if you can find RAM at 1333 or higher at 1.5v. Mushkin Enhanced or Ripjaws are some good examples at that range and price decently ~75$ 4/8GB.
