Default Another budget build.

I dont even know why im posting it here. I just like making topics. lol. But anyway, im making a rig for a friend who is on a $600 AUS budget for a gaming pc. Heres what i whipped up. And no, he cant afford a 8800GT so dont reccomend it.. lol. You guys and your 8800GT's....

Anyway:

Motherboard - M2N-MX SE -------------- $59
CPU - AMD Athlon x2 5000 ------------- $124
RAM - 2Gig 800mhz DDR2 Transcend ---- $45
Video Card - 512mb 9600GT Gigabyte --- $239
Case&PSU - RD Performance ------------ $49
HardDrive - Maxtor SATA 160gb -------- $58
DVD Drive - SONY SATA DL DVD-RW ----- $35


TOTAL -------------------------------- $609

And yes its using a stock PSU but he doesnt care and his budget is already $9 over...
PS: If your going to reccomend something use this parts list: http://www.msy.com.au/Parts/PARTS.pdf - if its not there then forget about it because i only want to shop at that shop.

>Insert sad face that i always give to that question here.<

Its in Australian dollars, and all Australians will back me up in saying tech is expensive over here. We have nothing like NewEgg or TigerDirect.
