    Iíve got $4000AUD in the bank ready to spend any time on a new PC. Its primary function will be gaming, but it will also be used for watching DVDs, listening to music and for general office use.

    As this is the first time Iíve customised specs for a PC, I just wanted to run it past you guys to make sure Iíve chosen the most suitable components, and to make sure itíll all work.

    The spec is as followsÖ

    Man looks good to me ....just wish I had 4 grand to spend on an computer!

    Just with the motherboard....some people seem to say bad things about SiS chipsets but theres no doubting that this new one is damn fast especially with DDR400. I personally have no experience with them so cant form an opinion.

    you can save $19 and just us the floppy out of your current computer (i'm using one from a p166), or have no floppy at all :)

    but this is entirely up to you

    Well if i were you i would just get the antec case that has that 430W power supply in it. See, the Aopen H600a is a good case, but when you add the cost of the antec PSU to it you get $249. The the same as the cost of the Antec PP1080 case, and its a far superior case to the Aopen H600a in all areas. Also gigabyte video cards dont have great reputations, and you can get that one in particular for $815 if saving the $70 something is of any concern.

    The conversion is usually 2x but a few things can be gettin' into 2.5-3x the zone. :(

    Well he's had the board for for a couple of weeks now so I wonder how he faired with it. :?:
