Ok. Here is the deal.

I'm in the market for a new PC. I'm looking at a Intel i5 based system with around 8Gigabytes of DDR-3 and a new set of 1.5TB Drives. I intend on assembling myself to save a few dollars.

I'm a bit tight with money, and can't afford to replace EVERYTHING in the PC as a whole. So as such i would like to use what i can from my old one to build onto my new one.

^That is my current Rig. The main thing that is killing me is the GPU and CPU combo. They hate each other with a passion.

I'm buying the parts from eBay australia, and would prefer spending no more then $1500 in total + maybe a little on postage. I also have a full size ATX tower here in the house so i will not need a case.

I'm going to be combining your ideas with my own and comming up with my new pc as a result :)

Please make sure you are using eBay.com'.au' when looking for the prices and thankyou for your input :)

PS. I want new parts, not refurbished and 2nd hand :)

Andy

Do you have Australian versions of computer stores similar to theses:

Such as http://www.ncix.com or http://www.newegg.com ?

Cause a Microbytes (http://www.microbytes.com), a budget of 1500$ is higher than my current PC lol
