Hey guys I am looking at putting a gaming system from http://www.mwave.com.au/system.asp I'd prefer an Intel build but i do not mind AMD any advice would be greatly appreciated (price does not include monitor i am set in that department. also if you can find a cheaper site (in Australia) you can put a system together for me that would be cool as well.


Thanks in advance

I would change the hard drive for this:
Western Digital WD Caviar Black 3.5" 1TB SATA 6.0Gb/s 7200RPM 64MB HDD (WD1002FAEX)
http://www.mwave.com.au/sku-22040394-Western_Digital_WD...

Reason: Better all around drive.



Do you believe he will see the extra $44 worth of performance from that drive to the one i said to get, you are correct it is a better drive but i dont think its $44 better which is why i said go with the BLUE and not the BLACK.
