Hi gamer383, welcome to Geeks to Go!

This is a last-generation motherboard and processor bundle, you can get much better out there. Whether it's good for the money or not, I'm not sure, I could tell you if it was Australian :)

I wouldn't rush to buy it myself, that's for sure, but it depends on what you want to use the computer for. Why are you building a new computer? Also give us a budget?

The Antec True Power Trio 550W is a good PSU :)

Cheers

Troy

OEM means that you're only getting the processor so you'll have to buy an aftermarket heatsink & fan.
