Total 355 dollars and you get 120GB SSD for fast OS performance and all your favorite apps and games and programs and 2TB for mass storage. Nice micro atx gaming case with good thermals for gaming and a mobo with everything you will need and by asrock which makes good stuff.

Well, for 350 NZD, he can probably get something like a CM HAF 912, a B75/H77 motherboard (since he doesn't have the 3570k processor) and a 500 GB...

wow so in the usa he could have a higher quality case, same motherboard, and a 120GB ssd and a 2TB hdd vs only a 500GB hdd in new zealand.

Thats crazy CM HAF 912 + H77 Mobo + 500GB hdd = 350 in NZ
and the same HAF 912 + H77 Mobo + 120GB Samsung SSD 840 + 2TB HDD = 335 in US

Must suck to live in lord of the rings land

yea man if you can get an american to order for you you can get the same thing except an awesome samsung 120gb ssd 840 + a huge 2TB drive instead of only a tiny 500GB drive and NO ssd. An ssd makes your computer very much faster.

Ok, you said $40 more will get me ssd and 2tb, so I'll downgrade my psu to 600W. Any suggestions for a 600/550w psu?

AMD recommends a 600 watt PSU for a system with a 7970. Ofcourse they over estimate what they recommend to cover the asses for all situations. A 450 watt PSU would be enough to run your system on full load with no overclocking no problem. Honestly with a 7950 and i5 3570 and stock voltage and clocks a 400 watt psu could sustain the system at full load.

Look at 450 watt PSU's. That way you for sure have enough of a buffer to run your system comfortably.

wow haf 912 is 60 usd here...... how much is the nzxt vulcan?

You only need 450 watt PSU. Do not spend extra for 500 watt when you dont have to.

Ok, have devised this system

i5 3570, Asus H77-MLE,
8GB Kingston RAM -472.00
WD Green 1TB - 122.00
Intel 330 120GB - 163.00
Antec HCG-520W - 116.00
Antec Three Hundred -101.00
Win 7- 153.00
Gigabyte 7950 - 504.00

Totals

With HDD, no SSD- 1469
With no HDD, SSD - 1509
Both - 1632

My budget was $1500, so im not sure whether the SSD or HDD is better. I was thinking taking the SSD and then buying an external hard drive later and plugging it in with usb 3.0 for all my movies etc.
