    im getting an upgrade [but basically a new pc], and i just wanted to know if this sounds right????
    first of all, my specs;

    GA 7VRXP Version 2.0 $180.84

    AMD 1800+ $180.00
    AMD 2000+ $230.00

    CORSAIR 512MB XMS2700 $356.50

    im not sure whether im going to get the 1800+ or 2000+, but either way, my ram is going to cost me more than my mobo and cpu put together!!!

    does that sound normal??

    :wave:

    Well I asked Wiggo for ya (Wiggo, ;)) and he said those prices are about right :thumb:. And if it really matters, go for the 1800+ since you can OC it nicely and because the new proc are coming out soon and are going to need new mobos. Have fun! :thumb:
    New Sig soon, old one was way outdated.

    Ah, now I know what the question was for. Just one thing, if ya can get ya self to North Rocks Shopping Centre on a Sunday (as they have a computer market there) have a look a what's there as the CPU's are cheaper and ya may do a better deal on the board as well (it's worth the look in my books). ;)

    Oh, do ya need the USB 2.0 and RAID plus what are your plans for this setup? (just in case an alternative maybe suggested). :thumb:

    whats the conversion from ausie $ to yankee $, because those prices are about twice what they are here?
    so is that due to conversion or do you guys pay more for everything??

    well currently the exchange rate is about 2:1
    so double [or half, depending how you look at it] sounds just about right.
