Hi, firstly let me say I'm from New Zealand so prices down here vary a lot from what you see on newegg, usually 20-50% more. My budget is $1500 Nzd. I have been searching around a bit and that is what I've come up within my budget for my new rig mainly focused on gaming. This is the website I used to find the cheapest parts available in NZ or simply add around 35% from newegg. http://www.pricespy.co.nz/
OS: Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium OEM = $132
Total = $1475 nzd
Does this look good value for money, will it all fit together, am I missing anything, cooling good enough? Just basic value for money, what can I improve on etc. Thanks a lot for any help! Remember I'm from Nz and prices are pretty wack here as you can see from my links hehe.
The motherboard has an on board sound device. If you find you don't like it, some on board sound is pretty crappy, you can always get a nice sound card later. Some on board sound is actually quite good.
