Your Opinion on this gaming Rig

Hey guys so im pretty close to purchasing this custom build from a guy on ebay who builds custom computers just wondering what you guys think of the price/quality of the components?

What do you guys think? I am a bit concerned about getting the MSI 580, i have read that people have had quite a few problems with them regarding using there afterburner software, i really want to get a Overclocked card, but not if its going to be riddled with problems - does anybody know any other really good cards around that price range which can be easily overclocked?


Also can anybody suggest a good gaming monitor? 23+ inches only please
Regards,

Ben

  2. The same parts priced at NewEgg comes to $1,561.84. The guy is really charging you a lot to build it for you. You could add a 24" LCD for $200.00 That would be $1,778.45 AUD. You could change video cards to something else also if you're worried about it, maybe an ATI 5870 or GTX570. This is a nice rig though.
  3. Hey man thanks for your reply, but i didnt think Newegg ships to australia? and if they did - i'd have to find somebody locally to build it, tune it for gaming, and even if they do ship to aus, wont it cost me quite alot in postage?
  4. Newegg.com does not currently ship internationally; we only deliver to locations within the United States and to Puerto Rico.

    :(
  5. Correct, they do not ship to AUS. Sorry. Tune it for gaming? If you're that worried about squeezing every last fps out of a system, then you better learn how to build a rig yourself. On a system of this caliber, a few more fps are not going to give you any more edge than running stock.
  6. It's better to build it yourself but here's another option:
