I suggest you build something yourself for in that price range you will get a lot more for your money especially without an OS. We can give you a part list if you comfortable with this idea.

It's extremely easy to do yourself and we can support you with any questions along the way. So what do you say?

I'm not good with the websites for your side of the world so someone might need to jump in but I'll see what I can find.

This will all fit very well with room to spare and everything is compatible. The cables will be included.

If you were to save up I would go with something close to this for graphics. It's pricier but worth it. Sapphire HD 5770 1GB GDDR5 Dual DVI HDMI DisplayPort.. | Ebuyer.com
