So i looked at the cost to upgrade my pc i have now and its cheap just to make a new one so will it all work together or no?

Cpu+Gpu: AMD A10-5800K APU 3.8Ghz Processor AD580KWOHJBOX

Motherboard: MSI Socket FM2/AMD A75/DDR3/SATA3&USB3.0/A&GbE/MicroATX Motherboard FM2-A75MA-E35

RAM: Corsair Vengeance Blue 8 GB (2X4 GB) PC3-12800 1600mHz DDR3 240-Pin SDRAM Dual Channel Memory Kit CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9B

Power Supply: Corsair Builder Series CX 430 Watt ATX/EPS 80 PLUS (CX430

CASE: Thermaltake V3 Black AMD Edition Gaming Chassis Mid Tower Steel Computer Case VL800P1W2N

dvd drive: Asus 24xDVD-RW Serial ATA Internal OEM Drive DRW-24B1ST (Black)

WIFI CARD: ASUS(PCE-N15) maximum performance Wireless-N Network Adapter ( 300Mbps Transmit / 300Mbps Receive) with PCI-E interface, Include Full Height and Low Profile bracket, WPS button Support

I hope to get all this stuff of amazon as i live in new zealand and i cant get it from newegg :(  Right now i think my build cost $460 nz or $381.20 USD. I dont mind going up to about 500-550 NZ. So is there any thing else i need? (note: I do have a harddrive and OS :)

What is the intended use of the build? It's likely that we can make some improvements, if it's meant to be a gaming machine.

It's fine, but it's not for gaming or renderring coz ur system will use AMD Radeon HD 7660D and it's not that good.

Hybrid CrossFire isn't an ideal solution, but I'm having a hell of a time finding decent, low-priced CPUs on the NZ PC Part Picker, so I can't really offer an alternative. Out of curiosity, are you aware of any Kiwi sites not on the NZ PC Part Picker's roster? Because I'm having a somewhat hard time believing that all of New Zealand is restricted to such a small part selection.

And BTW escape102, After I use SSD in my 3.7 years old rig... I will never EVER make any build without SSD, it's speed up my pc 4 times faster windows, applications and games every things

Having looked fairly extensively, I can't find a better option in that price range. With a little bit more, I could probably manage something, but Kiwi prices are too terrifying in this budget range. My apologies.

I know -_- to build a $300 USD PC (if you get the parts from nz) is about $1200nz i think i worked out. I know a 8core cpu i was looking at cost like $150ish USD but nz it was $650nz -_-

Do you guys at least have a good minimum wage and good labor laws, like the Aussies? Or are you just getting some of their bad tech prices that have spilled over?
