You could get a Corsair TX650 for much less than that Silverstone.

But newegg doesnt ship to Australia.... So without a Au store to see prices... Its not easy to advise cheaper options.

Based on price.. which may or may not be even close... You really have no idea how cheap prices in the US are.

And for the record... In Canada, the usual price for tx v2 is $110 and the strider is $105. Egg.ca currently has the tx for $95

In Au the tx v2 is $143, and the st60f-p is $133.....

do not pay for overclocked cards. The overclock is very slight and they charge a fortune.

Just to let you know 800mhz is the default speed of the 6950, anything faster is factory overclocked.

Pretty much.. Though you can find sales to make them competitive.

Ocing a gpu is soo easy aswell.
