    After you think you have a good set up, post spec back so we can give you advice.
  2. It's not working for me :(
  3. I called for help from UK forum members. They will provide you with better advice about your build. Sorry that I couldn't give you a build myself because once I start building I realize the price in Australia is very different than in UK.
  4. Okay, thanks :)
