  1. That looks good but I'm Australian and i can't get parts off Newegg :(
  2. That's over my price range and it still doesn't have a monitor or operating system...

    this is the entry level for gaming.


    I had another build set out like that with a lower GPU though at a lower price but that looks good.
    Would like to see what other people suggest as well.
