Hey Guys,
I'm looking to purchase a new computer on a tight budget around AUD$600 with shipping included. I would mainly use it for GMod, MC (SEUS Shaders and 128 Resource pack), Planetside 2, Civ 5, Anno 2070, oh and some school work but any computer can handle that *cough* Intel Core 2 Duo computers at school *cough* lol. I would like 8 GB RAM, GTX 660 and preferably Intel since I understand a bit about them but happy to opt for AMD if that's better. If you guys could please suggest some specs lists, I've had trouble getting it under $700. See below.

Thanks

So that looks good build. AsRock is not best mobo for intel 1155.
If Gigabyte B75 D3H is same price tahe it.

This is AMD build 8 core. Bit over the budget but maybe worth it.
Of you want cheaper just look 4 core cpu. Then you can upgrade later 8 core if you want better cpu.
