If I did the math right you only have ~$120 left. I don't think you can get a CPU + board.

For £150 you can get the Asus M5A97 EVO R2.0 and the AMD FX 6300/4100/4130. That's the best your going to get for that money. You can get the motherboard and the 4130 for about £130.

Hope this helps

It's Australia,which means Australian dollars.A expensive country/continent to get pc parts.

I don't see it happening with such a expensive gpu and that budget.

The closest i can get is this,

really the closest i could get. In both systems no dvd plyer.
Case is the same price as your choice,which one you take is up to you,i like the "Haf look" of this one.
