New System Build Help - Budget $2000

System Usage; Gaming, Internet, HD Movies, Photoshop etc

I've been looking around for the best spots to buy the parts but I'm still not sure where to get them, advice on that would be helpful. I have a budget of around $1500-2000AUD and am looking at getting the most out of it.

Games wanting to be played are; Arma2, OFP2 in high detail.

I want to future proof the system as much as possible.

Could someone help me by posting where to buy and a list of the parts, I'm talking complete system but don't worry about keyboards/mouses/monitors etc.

    Just a tower for 2k AUD...... In my case this is around $1600 USD.

    For the parts, I can't tell you where to get them because I'm not from Australia, but I'm giving you the prices from Newegg in USD. (Multiply by ~1.25 to get the AUD equivalent)

    $130 Case: Antec 902
    $120 PSU: Corsair TX750
    $260 Mobo: Gigabyte GA-EX58-UD4P
    $280 CPU: Intel Core i7 920
    $100 RAM: OCZ Platinum 6GB DDR3 1600
    $345 GPU: EVGA GTX 285 1GB
    $40 CPU Cooling: XIGMATEK Dark-Knight
    $120 Optical: LG Black 6x BD-ROM/HD DVD-ROM/ DVD-RAM GGC-H20L Blu-Ray drive
    $180 HDD: 2x WD Caviar Black 1TB WD1001FALS (RAID 0)

    These parts add up to $1575 USD, or around 1970 AUD. Be aware that the prices will differ depending on where you buy them.

    Also, you should be a little more specific, such as mentioning whether you like bling, plan to overlock/ SLI/ CF, or want lots of extras like a TV card or 2 optical drives or not, etc.
