Ditto, from what I hear/read, Blue Orbs are nothing but pretty to look at.

Also, when do you plan on having this built?

You might also want to shop around www.newegg.com to compare your prices. Some of them seem really high, such as your graphics card, mobo, RAM, and CPU. o_O

Just for your reference, $1 USD is $1.1678 AUD.


newegg doesn't ship there

I would get 2x1GB of G. Skill DDR2-1000 HZ for $200 at Newegg. I would also get a 22" BenQ HDMI Widescreen Display over a 20" Samsung. The resolution if 1680x1050 and it has an HDMI Port to hook up a PS3 or HD Player.

About that PSU, I would get an OCZ 700W GameXStream (from newegg) for about $110. If you can go higher I would get a PC Power & Cooling Silencer-750 Quad (with the money you saved on the Display).

And, lastly, I would definately upgrade to a Tuniq Tower 120, Thermalright Ultra-120 eXtreme, Enzotech Ultra-X, Thermaltake Big Typhoon, or Zalman 9700LED.

Damn, you live in Australia...

IF not OCing then get a retail cpu (with stock hsf) and 667mhz ram (since thats stock speed) and a cheaper motherboard (don't need a enthusiast board) save a few hundred bucks
