    With a bit of a twist!

    I need a system specced with parts available from this website.
    This is not a competitior, I am in Australia and they don't sell internationally..

    I already have a HD, DVD, and 6600GT graphics card.

    I need everything else including monitor for $1200. I want the computer for playing Everquest 2 which is a real system hog so I'll need a minimum of 1gig ram and if the budget will stetch a better graphics card.

    Can it be done? Only you can tell me that :)

    What's $1200 in £?

    FWIW EQ2 is more a Graphics hog than System hog. Even a X1900XT is pushed at max settings at 1200x1024.

    EDIT:deleted spec as I forgot about the monitor, I doubt you will get a system good enough to play that game with a monitor for that price.

    What is your 6600gt? Is it AGP or PCI-E? I'm working on the basis of AGP so I've included a motherboard with AGP and PCI-E. That site has an absolutely chronic design, why you have to put up with that I have no idea :) I've left as much as I could in the budget to get a keyboard and mouse but it is pretty hard. It comes to just shy of $1200 AUS, well £1180.

    Sorry should have said it's pci-e

    Yeah tell me about the site... If OcUK opened a branch in Sydney they'd be minted. There isn't a single decent internet pc shop here :(

    That spec's pretty decent. I think I may invest :)
