    (Main stores in wa are
    www .austin.net.au/ (without dot at start)

    If it could contain a GTX 670 and a 3770K at this price it would be great

    Parts that can be reused -None
    Do you need an OS? Yes

    This. If you're just gaming, then a 3570k will be more than enough. You're not going to notice any beneficial gain from having the 3770k.
