Can anyone help reduce to around $900? Any suggestions at all would be great.
It's not like the buyer just swipes a credit card, puts the employees under their arm, bows, and walks out of Index HQ. - Kromlech06

you've already got pretty low end stuff there... Do you have an HDTV? if so you can drop off the monitor.

I really can't advise going lower, then, unless he doesn't really wanna game on it. I assume he does?

i would suggest hunting around for parts. when i built my computer i looked at like 6 different shops and the difference in prices for the total build was about £300 depending on where i bought the parts from.

you guys have to remember that in AUS, electronics tend to cost considerably more. This includes PC components

Anything wrong with this?:

Some of the things are more expensive but not (much) better, so if they could be bought from MSY then that could also save money. I just listed them in this build to get an idea of the price. Does everything have to be from MSY?
