those prices seem high

Random movie quote to make you seem hip and "with it":
"Please take the chairs away. I don't like them. The big one is staring at me and that short one is being very droll."

Have you checked out static ice?

staticICE :: Australia's comprehensive computer hardware and gadget price comparison search engine

Also that power supply looks pretty overdone, just get a corsair 520hx or a 650tx
Back to stay?

Why are you making multiple threads on the same build...

I do not accept help requests and/or deleted threads/complaints by PM, Profile or IM/Email. Just ask on the forums! Also, I do have Lockerz invites if you want them, feel free to PM me your email if you want one :0

If I help you, or you just like what I said, rep me by clicking the
or under my avatar; it helps me know that my advice actually helped you.

.. But things don't go according to plan! My Actual Rig, 2009:
