  1. Hello nutmegman;

    It's a good list. Nothing needs changing.
    Who is selling you that CM RC-692 Advanced II for $115?
  2. All looks good. I would build this machine for myself. Um, where are you purchasing your parts? The CPU looks a little high.
  3. I noticed the same thing on the case. Canada? Just a guess.
  4. I would recommend the Samsung Spinpoint F3 hard drive over the one you listed. Its only $65 from Newegg for a 1 TB.

    Sounds good but is it Sata3?

    Living in Australia, things are hella expensive here.
  7. For Down Under - those are good prices.

    You HDD doesn't need to be SATA III - they can't even use the full bandwidth of SATA II
    You can save money and not loose performance there.

    Everything looks good.
