Hey all, lately ive been thinking about putting a new gaming pc together in the next couple of months and im just looking for some ideas?
I'm looking at spending around $1300 New Zealand (or $900 US I think...)

Ive been looking at a few builds on (New Zealand equivalent of ebay) as its hard to find an online pc company that sells in New Zealand at a descent price.

Im thinking about something with the following
- AMD Phenom 965
- Radeon HD 5770
- Motherboard that supports crossfire so i can chuck another 5770 in later.
- NZXT Lexa S case (or similar)

Heres kind of the sort of thing im looking at.

Its hard to find a online PC company that sells in New Zealand at a descent price.

Any system ideas of around this price range or suggestions for good PC websites that sell in New Zealand would be greatly appreciated :) 

Note: Im not looking for monitors, mouses/ keyboards, software.
