New build

I'm buying from Amazon and shipping to NZ do you recommend this... I was going to buy the PSU locally (plug) but the price is insane!

Ok:
Corsair 600 Watt

Seagate 500GB 7200RPM

NZXT M59 Classic
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B002OEBILK/ref=ox_sc_act_title_4?ie=UTF8&m=ATVPDKIKX0DER
Corsair 8GB Vengeance RAM
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00569K7LM/ref=ox_sc_act_title_2?ie=UTF8&m=ATVPDKIKX0DER
i5-2500k
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B004EBUXHQ/ref=ox_sc_act_title_7?ie=UTF8&m=ATVPDKIKX0DER
EVGA 560TI
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B004KZHRAM/ref=ox_sc_act_title_8?ie=UTF8&m=ATVPDKIKX0DER
ASUS x24 CD/DVD
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0033Z2BAQ/ref=ox_sc_act_title_9?ie=UTF8&m=ATVPDKIKX0DER

And of course Windows Home Premium but will a used Windows Professional OEM work???

BTW All of these need to have International Shipping which I have checked... Should I buy the case here (far more costly)??
I will be buying middle of March... I am looking at getting a 20" monitor anyone know anywhere good???

  1. amazon has cheap towers from $28.99 to $49.99, me i'am getting a Raidmax Altas ATX Mid Tower Case ATX-295WB 49.99
  2. I like the NZXT M59 alot and it is quite cheap :).
  3. Looks pretty good, my main suggestions would be this:

    - Drop the RAM to 8GB and swap it with this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820148544

    - Hitachi HDs are terrible, get this instead: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822148701

    - With the money you save on RAM you might want to get this for your motherboard: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128498

    And then the last thing I'd suggest is adding an aftermarket cooler - something like the Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835103099

    Other than that most of what you have picked out is really good.
  4. Ok I have switched HDs.
    One question, the seller I choose says "Expedited Shipping Available" but the product still says it can only be shipped within the US. So will it be shippable to New Zealand??
    I couldn't find that RAM on Amazon so I selected a single 8GB stick of Corsair Vengeance.
    And I switched Mobos, it is actually $20 cheaper :D. Looks very nice, and it goes well with my case (black).
  5. Update: Switched back Mobo, no international shipping :(.
  6. Can anyone else see any issues??

    No - do not get a single 8GB chip - most Z68 motherboards won't recognize a single 8GB chip - you need 2 x 4GB in order for a dual channel system to properly function.
  8. Ok I will switch it!
