Default decent computer shop near brisbane

hey guys im thinking of going to college or university near brisbane and i'm not sure where to start when buying parts there. i heard australia is expensive but does anyone know a good place to buy? in store or online wouldn't matter but i'd prefer something comparable to newegg or tigerdirect prices.

Graphics card: Inno3D Nvidia GeForce 8800 GTS @ 640/940 (core/memory)
MB: Gigabyte GA-965P-DS3 v3.3 F12
RAM: 2 Kingston HyperX DDR2 800MHz (4GB total)
CPU: Core 2 Duo E6320 @variable rates (will fix my fan problem soon and overclock high again)
HSF: Thermalright Ultra 120 Extreme & Antec Tricool 120mm fan
PSU: Delta Serverpower 550W
HD: Seagate 400GB ST340032AS & Excelstor 80GB (both SATA)
Case: don't know what case it is but it is very crappy
Optical Drive: Lite-on 16X DVD+&- RW DL (died) using a CD-ROM drive until I get a new blu ray burner or whatever i can get

**been afk from tech-forums for a while so this is the updates specs**

It's hard to say. Newegg and tiger direct are some of the first thoughts I had in mind. I've known of a few shops that will build the computers specifically for you. Anything come up in the white pages listings at all?

you might have some luck with this

PriceSpy Australia - Compare PC parts prices from Australia's online computer retailers

apparently it looks for the lowest prices of any given hardware that you search. but i have no idea whether the retailers that sell any of the parts are as good as newegg.
