I am currently in the middle of planning to upgrade my HP computer to something that is more suited to the gaming me, and I was wondering if these parts are the best I could get, for the budget I'm going for.
(I live in Australia, so NewEgg, etc is off limits)

This is the computer I will be upgrading from: http://bizsupport1.a...4&printver=true

This is the video card I will be uprgading to:
(Though I still don't know what brand would be best, I heard XFX may be good, but I don't see many Australian stores that have it in stock.)

The power supply: http://www.pccasegea...oducts_id=13984
(I hope this should be enough wattage to supply the video card, cpu, etc when it's running hard.)

And I am also getting the Antec DF-85 from a friend for $100.

Anything else to keep out for when replacing/building would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance, StealthyThinking

What kind of budget are you working with?

About the same price this is going at $300-$400.
Thats with the GPU, PSU and Case combined.

Okay, here, these are the links, they should work now hopefully:

And the PSU:

What does the Asus have over the other brands though, because to me it seems like XFX or Sapphire or Gigaybyte seem to be a lot better.
And is this PSU reliable? I'll research it more of course, but I'd also like to get your opinion on it.

And that's about it, I may need to upgrade my motherboard in the future, but that's it for now.
Thanks for your help.
