For this system, Mostly it's going to be used for gaming, anywhere from Unreal Tournament 3 to COD5 and FSX to Age of Empires. And also The Orange Box to Empire Total War to Crysis to CS:SOURCE.

I live in Victoria, Australia, so no NewEgg Prices please.

Any good advice will certainly come in handy

Do you really need a sound card, on board is still good and it will save you money.
if you want to save money maybe wait until latter to get Blu-Ray, are you even going to use it. Check out Mwave.com.au they have combo deals so you might be able to save money there.

setup RAID on that processor or you will be waiting for you hardrive all the time! Dont get sound card or blue ray drive and get a i7 940 instead.
