I like that, " redonkulously ".
My Pal ICit2lol can attest to the high prices of stuff in Oz.

Cool. Maybe I'll try to pull a similar coup, come next Christmas Eve.

D'you think that Passover or Easter would serve as well?
I think a online store owner cut me a break by ending the auction early (can you do that on ebay?) ...maybe his way of giving someone a christmas present.
Because it didn't seem very long after I placed my bid that the won auction email came.

It all looks good.

I might go for at least 1600MHz RAM.

Hope you can get it shipped in a reasonable time.
Let us know what you order.

panais,
I agree it all looks very good. I would like wise think hard about upping the ram to 1600 or higher mhz. Also 700 watt is perfect unless and this his highly unlikely you might want to sli or crossfire another card in the future. If not then the 700 should suffice for a number of years, if there could be a crossfire or sli down the road then I would take this time to invest in a 1000w or higher PSU. Regarding the card I'm a ATi proponent and would go with XFX but the EVGA is a crazy great card as well and really at this level it's splitting hairs. Maybe a coin flip ?

The Passmark ratings rate the GTX 570 as better. But noticeably better, I don't know.
