I have found a shop which has decent prices although not to good a range and allows you to pick up. I will cross reference their prices with a cheaper shop and check if it is economical to get it from these guys.

The skycomp place doesn't sell the i3 530 which is why the i5 750 is there. A Graphics card is not included

ASUS P7P55-M 150 http://www.skycomp.com.au/product.aspx?id=197415

Way out of your budget.

Just in your budget although once you add postage it won't be, my guess is max $50 postage. This place allows you to pick up if you are near Brisbane anytime soon.

If you get a i3 530 with the gocomp purchase then the price will be:
i3 530 167 http://gocomp.com.au/index.php?cpath=productinfo&pid=II...

Total: 789

If you add $50 postage this will still be in your budget.

To others if you have suggestions please post.

thanks very much for all suggestions, going by the_punkinators second list with a cheaper hard drive and getting some of the parts from cheaper shops i can cut it down to about 750 with the i5. Only thing i am concerned about is that is it worth reusing my 9800 GT for a graphics card, is it capable of max wow settings?

It seems that a 9800GT will max out the settings although will "chug" a bit, with shadows and AA turned down somewhat it should do good. This is on 1920x1200.

If you are going to get a new graphics card then I suggest a HD 5770, they are $200 though. The older HD 4830's go for around $130 which should max wow out good.
