where are you looking? try nintek.com.au. check staticice.com.au as well. its a pc parts price search engine for australia. you could get a thermaltake mambo or soprano witha 430w psu for around the same price as that cooler master. would help if i knew the prices you were looking at for each component

hmmm their prices don't seem too bad there are things you could do better on i guess. remember you can always go for a single core if you'd prefer to focus on other components but i reccomend dual core. you can always go the other way though and go cheaper on the video card. i would not go lower than a 6600gt.

Get an Antec Sonata. Comes with a 450W PSU I believe. I don't think it's too expensive.

Well, you could drop the SLi Motherboard, and get a MSI K8N Neo4-F, which is about half the price of the Asus.
