I live in ausstralia. I would like to build the 500 gaming pc but i am having trouble finding the parts. Could anyone suggest a site or a shop that will ship to australia and still keep the comonents under 600 australian dollars?
thanks in advance Cheers

I'd recommend simply looking for competitively priced computer shops in Australia...bound to be at least a few, and save on shipping international....

For gaming, start your build around a GTX460 if at all possible, IMO....

^^Yeah I agree, in my country it's the same the 500$ turn into 670$, you can't compete with US prices, atleast in Europe.

The GTX 460 is great, if you are goin to use a 1080p and higher resolution I reccomend the 1GB version, also if it's cheeper you could go for the AMD Radeon HD 6850, the same basic performance, but a BIT less OC friendly.

Please tell us the resolution you are going to be using.
I think Amazon ships to Australia, not sure, but check it out.

BTW EVERY time I want to write 6850 I write 6950, I have no idea why :D 

Cheers.

If they ship to Australia I suggest something like this :

Mobo http://www.amazon.com/Gigabyte-Socket-4DDR3-1866-Mother...

CPU http://www.amazon.com/AMD-Athlon-Triple-Core-Desktop-Pr...

RAM http://www.amazon.com/Kingston-Technology-Modules-KHX13...

GPU http://www.amazon.com/EVGA-GeForce-PCI-Express-Graphics...

PSU http://www.amazon.com/OCZ-OCZ500MXSP-ModXStream-Power-S...

CASE http://www.amazon.com/CoolerMaster-RC-912-KKN1-Haf-912-...

Without shipment taxes, the price is about 510 USD.

I don't have any experience with Amazon, so if I'm getting something wrong, correct me.

Edit: Forgot about HDD and DVD-RW, but Im falling asleep, so I will check the thread tomorow ;)
