Hi all.

My first post on this forum and first gaming rig build. After reading a lot of what is available on this site and others I have come up with a system below.

http://pricespy.co.nz/list.php?l=80443&view=m

As you can see I'm from NZL and so I imagine prices may be are quite different even after straight currency conversion. In any case I am asking to know whether there are any fundamental flaws with this set up. I.e. incompatible components.

Additionally if there needs to be a change please find parts in similar price range.

The use for this rig will be primarily gaming with triple monitors and requires room for future crossfire (I can't afford second card yet).

Also suggestions for 23-24" monitors with small bezel and good quality picture would be appreciated around $200-250 NZL each.

Thanks in advance :)
