-psu thermaltake 500w
-mobo asus p8h61-m-lx3 r2.0
-hdd wd caviar blue 500gb
-ram corsiar vengence 2x8gb (16gb)

total price $744.13 AUD

AMD Build
-cpu Amd 8 core fx 8120
-gpu Hd 7870 oc 2gb
-case bitfenix merc alpha
-psu thermaltake 500w
-mobo Asus M5A78L-M LX V2 MB
-hdd wd caviar blue 500gb

The I5 build stronger GPU and CPU. Some adjustments like for gaming 8GB ram is plenty and Thermaltake is not a recommended PSU brand better of with Corsair, Antec, Seasonic or XFX to name few.

rolli nailed it - I'm just throwing my .02 in to reiterate that either
build shaould have a better psu. rolli listed the brands.

Tom

if that TT 500 is the 'purepower' model it is on the johnnylucky.org
Lemon List:

Purepower 500 Not 500 watts as advertised. Could only deliver 400 watts for a few seconds. +12 voltage lower than minimum allowed. Could not achieve efficiency rating above 300 watts. Hardware Secrets

so def stay away from it
