My mistake, I forgot to change the DDR... I will be gettting DDR1.

And the 4x512 is cheaper than the 2x1024, so I'm going for the cheaper option.

Yes thats true... the price is a bit more inflated here in Aus though, it's more than $15 difference... also there isn't any RAM that I can get in 2gb that's DDR1 that is less costly than the one I suggested. In any case, the speed won't be noticable.

As for the CPU I've had another idea. What do you guys think about: http://www.techbuy.com.au/products/5...39_-_Boxed.asp

Will it be better value than the 4200?

Zer4tyr, since that post I have bought lots of other things using staticice.com.au so I've more or less found the best prices for NSW.

BstOnTheBrain, this is an ultimate gaming PC for the price range it is in. What other suggestions do you have?
