Hmm, why are you having much issues over MSY.com ?
I know a old friend of mine on another site who went there and got half of his parts there.
Looks abit more junky then when I last went to it 2 years ago, but pick up the motherboard and cpu there first.
The msi GTX 465 is good, how much are you willing to spend on a card ?
If they are asking 100+ retail for it, you could do better with a GTX 500 series, but see what they discount, and bring it back here.

The hdd, is very good, matter of fact I own it and its currently for my os and backup data in case stuff goes wrong.
The cooler master psu I am kinda weary on, check out the reviews from this year and see if its a match.
Post the link to the gskill ram and let me see if its any good or not.

That site looks like it was put together by a high school BCIS student lol.
Not a bad build for the price considering Aus prices are usually way higher.

I agree with you on that, its almost like the prices you would pay for a average in usa or partially canada budget build.
Prices are kind of high, it if werent spec-high gaming work station build would fly out the door for under 1200.

Check with me later on tonight, I need to show you what my hands have been doing the last 48 hours off and on.

haha, yeah MSY is pretty dodgy, but their prices are cheap.
mm... so the only thing I have an issue with now is the motherboard and the psu, that motherboard is awfully cheap and can I get away with the corsair 500w

I hear ya, have a nice long stare at this and decide:
Run a search on google and bing, see if that helps you out.

AsRock H61M-HVS // G-B Z68P-DS3

Antec VP 450P / 550P / 650P

Pickup the 550p model, nothing wrong with it at all, I have the 450vp and it powers on my FX4100 build no problems/

Speaking from experience, I wouldn't run a 465 on a 500w PSU.
