Advice for Pre-built system in Australia

by aboabolic / January 22, 2008 8:19 AM PST


I'm looking for a home desktop system for around $1500(without monitor/speaker/keyboard/mouse). The system will be used mainly for database programming/acting as ftp server and minor gaming.

I've been looking at various vendors, however most of the good ones I found are in US and don't ship to Australia.

Can anyone please give me some directions for where to look(no DELL please)?

Thx in advance

look for a board that has at least one pci slot and can support 4G of memory. You can get an AMD64(proper architecture name also the intels are listed as this) for $30 us to over $1000.
enough of that. A system should be avilable for you for the amount you ask. Try the common newegg and other sites.

online computer stores in Oz?

What about PC World, common in the UK. Similar in Australia?

What about high street stores?
