I also moved the thread to the Systems forum.


Approximate Purchase Date: Sometime during this week.

Budget Range: 650-700$ AUD, Sorry for misleading title.

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, Watching Youtube.

Are you buying a monitor: Already have one.

Do you need to buy OS: Yes

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: PCcasegear.com (has to be from here)

Location: Canberra, ACT, Australia.

Your Monitor Resolution: 1920x1080

Additional Comments: The games I'm going to be playing are BF3, BF4, FIFA 14 and ARMA 2 and maybe 3

Not in particular, no.
PC Case Gear I have bought plenty of stuff from though, and of all the retailers Iv tried in the Melbourne area are the one I'v had no issues with.
