Because u said "gaming" as the first thing on your list, your video card is the priority in that system. I would not recommend going less than a 6600gt for games, but u could go 9800pro or x700 if your not fussy about resoultion and quality graphics.....u can buy some decent case/psu combos that are fine...like anything Antec brand. U dont need a $70 USD psu for a budget system like that....

can u give us a link to a online Australian site that u are buying the parts from??

btw hearing the word "heaps" made me chuckle....traveled with some aussies years ago...

www.techbuy.com.au
and
www.swiftlink.com.au

are the best ones ive found so far...

i dont need it to be a top of the range gaming machine, but i do want it to play some half decent games...like maybe farcry and cs etc..maybe i might spend a bit more on a vid card, i'll keep looking...

the case/psu combo i found is $70aud, which is the cheapest nice one ive found, im gonna do some mods to it myself to save some cash(im a bit of a hands on person)...so yeh i'll take a look at some vid cards now...and let ya's know

p.s. i thought 'heaps' was a common word across the world?

:EDIT:

k done some looking..heres what ive found...and i decided, why not spend an extra $100bucks lol...but not spending anymore than that...

http://www.swiftlink.com.au/xpertvis...?cPath=268_271
http://www.techbuy.com.au/products/5...Ex16_vGuru.asp

Im pretty sure i wanna go with PCI-Express...

but i dont know if i should go ati or nvidia....??

if you, find an antec case with an antec Power supply, thats fine, but if you get a case with a crappy Power supply in it. You will regret it, take my warning you don't know how many times im seen posts on other forums because the power supply that came with case, died, blew up and took some other parts with it.

What's the point of buying cheap technology that's already out of date?
