If the ram is all the same price go with the one that has the best latencies. I got Geil ram, and I like the heatspreaders on them, makes it look a bit neater.

I think MSI is a good graphics card manufacturer. The best are the dedicated ones. What other manufacturers can you get there?

well I've got a few connections so i just have to tell them what i want and they should be able get me a good price. Leadtek or MSI

online the corsair is $au 189, the geil is $au 155 and the ocz is $au 140.

just for the record we can get most of the video cards for the US (haven't seen an evga in my travels) were not a backward country like New Zealand.
