Hey Nic_van_Dessel

The list of parts looks pretty good, couple thoughts...

The Ram you selected is not the specified speed for the mobo you should be looking for PC2-8500 check these links out.

Corsair Dominator

Corsair Xms2

Patriot Viper

G skill




I think you are limiting yourself also by choosing a micro ATX mobo as well. The case you have select will easily handle a regular ATX


I would select a ATX design for future expansion. Micros don't have a lot of room and they usually don't have as many features as the full ATX. Here are a couple:

Asrock

Another Asrock


There are more, I'm just not sure what you are looking for.



I see you don't have any cd\dvd burners on the list... here are some:

dvd burner

Blue ray player-dvd burner

Blue ray burner-dvd burner

Everything else looks pretty good, I don't know how much the parts are in AU...

I can build a pretty good Phenom 9950 based computer for about $800 here in the USA.

If you have any more questions let me know I'll look into it for you...

Hello, Nic_van_Dessel. As cbarnard said, the RAM should be upgraded. Also, the ATX should be large too. Do not be afraid of a large "box" for your computer. I think cbarnard covered most other things. The quad core is looking beastly. :)

Hey DragonMaster Jay,

Thank you, I copied it to my reply, I use it for quick reference:

I failed to remove it. Also sometimes I insert my "thoughts" in between sections of the quote. I didn't do that this time.
I had a fast paced morning and had to take off, Hence not correct editing.

Hey Cbarnard,

How do you think this RAM will work.


And what was the Phenom PC for $800 US. Im situated in Queensland, Australia so shipping will be an added cost i spose to.

I think that Ram selection will be fine

The PC I built for a friend:

Asrock a780gxe\128m

AMD Phenom 9950

Corsair Dominator 2 kits 8gb total at 1066mhz

2 LG dvd burners with lightscribe

Gigibite 4670 video card

Raidmax Aztec

Thermaltake 700w

Vista home edition 64bit

Edit... I just realized I forgot a hard drive WD 750

The cart price is $934 but there is $60 in mail in rebates total after $874 US = $1205 AUD

Several of the parts in this build I ommitted when I quoted $800 as right after it was built my friend wanted bigger and better... ohhohoho lol :)

I don't know if you can purchase from Newegg since you are in AU, but it is worth a try...

Good luck

Cbarnard

Thank you for the clarification Anthony19

Hello Nic_van_Dessel

Build looks nice , Smoooking infact :) , not technical of course...

Funny that the electrical components have inbuilt smoke in them huh?
Once it comes out , very hard to get back in :) ( Ive tried it , trust me lol j/k )

Best of luck
&
Happy computing

Anthony19
PS: Are you building for performance or just general or future use ? ( Although these days they are trying to build computers to be upgradable in the near future... )

Edited: some info for cbarnard...
800 US Dollar = 1,104.09 Australian Dollar

800 Australian Dollar (AUD) = 579.664 US Dollar (USD)

Give you an idea of the currency conversion ratio( At this point of time anyway )
