Well that just sucks. There certainly need to be more component support for our mates down under!

G.Skill RAM is an excellent choice, as is the seagate barracuda.

I made a mistake and chose a PSU that doesn't cater for too much growth. I'd go for an efficient 750W - but then I'm not a Gamer.

I wouldn't touch an LG anything - in my opinion their customer service is very bad in this country.
It's very frustrating, isn't it? The US has Newegg and a whole range of other great online stores while we have barely any. Surely they can lend us some.

Also, would it be worth getting the AX750 over the HX850? The AX has higher certification but I'm not entirely sure whether I'll actually need it.

If you don't see yourself doing heavy overclocks+higher end SLI/CF in the future, I'd go the AX750.

I'll be trying a couple of overclocks and might SLI so I'll stick with the HX850.

EDIT: I've put the AX850 down. It's only slightly more expensive than the HX850.

Have a look at comparisons Jaidyn. The HX has a bigger fan and more connectors

Perhaps. But now that I'm in that price range, I might as well have a look at CM and OCZ too. I promise, this will be the last PSU question.

I though I'd look at other branded PSUs around the $240 range. The majority of people are saying go with Corsair but I've managed to find a couple of other PSUs that look decent.

CoolerMaster Silent Pro Gold 1000W
They are all 80PLUS Gold Certified (except the HX850) and are all around the same price so at this point in time, it's the quality, not the money. As far as I can tell, all are modular and all are made by decent manufacturers. The HX850 seems to have the most cables. So, which one would you recommend?

That's a very hard decision to make, but I would go with the Corsair AX850 simply because they give a 7 year warranty.
Any one of them would be suitable for you, and you wouldn't have any problems with any of them they are all first class power supplies.
Good luck making a decision!!!

If CM is Cooler Master I'd steer clear of them. HX and AX both have 7 yr waranty.

The other thing to consider is how easy (or should I say difficult) it may be to get your component serviced under warranty from Australia.

Can I install Icon Packs designed for Build 7600 on to Build 7601?
Can I install Icon Packs designed for Build 7600 to Build 7601? An Icon Pack was saying install on to 7600 only and after I checked my regedit, I learned that I have 7601 (Probably SP1, I don't know). Would I have any problems if I install the icon pack? Thanks.
