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?

Case: NZXT Guardian 921RB (Blue)



OS: Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit



CPU: Intel® Core™ i7-2600 Processor(8M Cache, 3.40 GHz)



RAM: 8gb of DDR3 XMS3 1600MHz corsair



Graphics: N580GTX Twin Frozr II



Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-P67A-UD3R



Primary HDD: Corsair Force Series 60GB SSD2.5 MLC SSD, 285/275MB/Sec

Network: Built in Gigabit ethernet adapter, Asus internal wireless adapter



PSU: 750W 80 plus Gaming PSU w/ 3 y.r warranty



Misc: Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 pro 3rd party cooling solution


Total AU: $2258



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

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.

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?

Newegg.com does not currently ship internationally; we only deliver to locations within the United States and to Puerto Rico.

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.
