Default More help (chose the parts, need advice on em)

Hey all, gotta love this forum...

Now, I need some advice.. I've chosen some parts but they arnt finalized.. Want all your oppinions on these parts, and if you have time.. look at that site and find a replacement.

All the parts are from the same site for shipping reasons, so unless I reeealy have to I dont really want to go to another site just to find something like a evga 7900gtko (even tho that'd overprice my system)

Remember my budget is $1300 AUD as I live "Down Under".. all these prices are in AUD so dont go into a shock and be "your getting ripped off".. These are pretty much the cheapest prices in oz.

CPU
Intel Core 2 Duo E6300 (1.86GHz) $326.50
http://www.techbuy.com.au/p/63740/CP...80557E6300.asp
Motherboard
Intel DP965LT $187.25
http://www.techbuy.com.au/p/63750/MO...KDP965LTCK.asp
RAM
OCZ 1024MB (2 x 512MB) PC2-4200 533Mhz - Value Pro Series $147.85
http://www.techbuy.com.au/p/53257/ME...2531024VPD.asp
Video Card
ASUS GeForce 6600LE Silencer, 256MB, TV-Out, DVI-I, PCI-Ex16 $119.15
http://www.techbuy.com.au/p/57156/VI...SLN-TD-256.asp
or
Gigabyte Radeon X1300 PRO - 256MB, 128bit, PCIEx16, TVOUT $129.35
http://www.techbuy.com.au/p/58451/VI...13P256D-RH.asp
Hard Drive
Seagate Barracuda 7200.9, 300GB 7200rpm Serial ATA-II-300 HDD - 16MB $170.45
http://www.techbuy.com.au/p/56454/HD...T3300622AS.asp
Optical Drive

Power Supply
Antec 500W SmartPower 2.0 ATX Power Supply $123.05
http://www.techbuy.com.au/search.asp...rbSrchType=ALL
Case
Antec Performance Plus PlusView II - Black SOHO File Server w. Side Window, NO PSU $128.75
http://www.techbuy.com.au/search.asp...rbSrchType=ALL

Total:
$1203 (Asus geforce 6600LE)
or
$1213.20 (Gigabyte Radeon x1300 PRO)
--------------------------

I'm welling to say.. drop back to a Intel Pent d 805 and change afue parts (like go with a asus mobo to overclock that pent d 805.. or some more ram whatever).

Remember, tell me what you think of these parts, wether a 6600LE is pure junk when there is a x1300 pro twice as fast (no idea) or something like that.

Thanks in advanced.

ok, I re-did what I'm getting, made comprimises to get a level'd system with plans to upgrade for the futur.

Keep in mind that I do have a price range, so if I should change parts.. be it to a cheaper one or of equal value (unless I drop back in other area's)

Once again I say, remember all of this pricing is in AUD so dont be surprised if it looks a little b it expensive.

Intel Pentium D 805 (2.66Ghz), $172.1

ASUS P5V-VM-DH, VIA P4M890, LGA775, 1066FSB, DDR2, PCI-Ex16, LAN, mATX
775,COREDUAL, $158.95

Corsair 2048MB (2 x 1024MB) PC2-4200 533Mhz DDR2 RAM - Value Select $291.60

InnoVISION GF 7600GS 512MB 128-bit DDR2, SLI Ready, DVI, TV Out, PCI Express X16 interface, 400MHz Core Clock. $192.65

Seagate Barracuda 7200.9, 300GB 7200rpm `ST3300622AS` SATA II HDD - 7200rpm, 16MB Cache $170.45

Antec 500W SmartPower 2.0 ATX Power Supply
NEW! Antec SmartPower 2.0 500W ATX Power Supply, $123.05
