i rec. you check out all those sites, that configuration i made is not the best you good make, other sites have things for better configurations i suggest you try make computers and mix and match. i find itsdirect.com.au the best for me because the guy gives me discount since i know him. i find mwave and another place called umart.com.au
good for budget systems
