Hey all, I'm from Australia so everything I list will be in AUD.
Resolution: 1920x1080 (my native resolution so couldn't really settle for less)
Games: Mainly WoW, Swtor, Diablo 3 and Starcraft 2. Medium to high settings.
Parts to be reused All my current peripherals I will reuse. So the $1000 budget is for the tower only.
Parts Currently in my cart:
Cpu: i5 2500k (not using aftermarket cooler straight away but DO plan to OC in the future)
Mobo: ASRock Z68 Extreme3 Gen3 Motherboard
PSU: Seasonic M12II 520W Modular PSU
GPU: MSI Radeon HD6850 Cyclone Power Edition OC (plan to update to current gen card when the NEW gen comes out in march-april)
RAM: G.Skill Sniper F3-12800CL9D-8GBSR2 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3
Case: CoolerMaster Centurion 5 II Black (No PSU)
HDD: Seagate Barracuda 500GB ST500DM002
Optical Drive: LG GH24NS70 24x SATA DVD-RW Drive OEM
Would be grateful for critique here and ask me any questions you need.
Very unsure on which GPU to get and this one seems fairly cheap and decent to last me until I purchase a much more powerful card in the near future.
