You were saying you needed a mobo with wi-fi, but if you want you could get a pci wi-fi card if you dont like the mobo wi-fi options.

didnt i make that in other thread, its seem awfully familiar.

anyway i find this site really cheap for australia.
GameDude Computers OnLine Store get something along the lines of this

asus p5Q (dont have ds3. but doesnt matter bot hare good)
q6600
640gb WD HDD
4GB Gskill PI
HIS 4870
seasonic 430w psu

total 1034, just add optical drive/case and ur set. this wont allow u to use full 16x Xfire only 8x (who cares, dont get Xfire) and any mobo can have a wi-fi card its just a pci expansion card.
