Okay, so I'm gonna be building a new setup soon. Got like $500 atm so bout half way there, probably get a job soon as well so yeah. Anyways this is what I'm thinking of getting atm:

CPU:
AMD Athlon 64 3500+
GFX CARD:
I can't seem to find a 6800GS in the shops near me but I'm trying to get one.
If I can't I'll probably get a 6600GT
POWER SUPPLY:
Antec 480W True Power
http://www.antec.com/us/productDetails.php?ProdID=20480
CASE:
Either a Thermal Take Soprano or Mambo. Hmm, can't find the black on at the shop I'm looking at noooooooo. X|
MOTHERBOARD:
ASUS A8N-SLI (I know it SLI and i'm only getting one gfx card atm but I might upgrade and it's the best mobo for the cheapest price where I'll get it).
http://www.asus.com.au/products4.aspx?l1=3&l2=15&l3=148&model=382&modelmenu=1

Oh and if anyone knows any computer shops in WA (Australia) that have good prices please share. :D Please share your ideas. :D

That Looks like a good rig.. BUT REMEMBER i hate it when this happens

snag urself a copy of windows 64 bit edition to get the full power out of ur amd 64

because theres not that much of a difference from any other processor when running it in x32

its alright..i would try to get a dual core if u can afford it..
I thought dual cores wouldn't help games much because there not designed to use both of the cores. I can't afford it anyway though. :p
