ok i have a quote for approx $2240.00
it includes the assassin : http://www.playtech.co.nz/product.php?action=showdetail&id=8235
this system only supports direct x 10, so i asked to upgrade the graphics card for an extra $100 for the 5750 (i think) that is full support for direct x 11 when it comes out.
this system has full windows 7 (not oem thank god)
i asked for a wireless networking card with external antenna (think they all have antennas lol)
thats an extra $50
and the monitor i selected was a lg HD $299 one with standard 3yr warranty:
http://www.playtech.co.nz/product.php?action=showdetail&id=7435
all ill need now is a logitech wireless keyboard and mouse.

does this sound good? price quoted includes delivery also.
thanks

While thats not a bad machine I don't like the fact you can't change parts as you wish on the website and you have to go with "playtech approved" stuff which is annoying if you like a particular brand.
8gb of ram is overkill i reckon.
I know it's from computer lounge but this comes with a dx11 card as standard and the rest of the specs are very similar.

Yeah email Computer Lounge and get a quote for the same parts, see how it works out. Always good to get at least 2 quotes imo!

I haven't used Computerlounge but Playtech have a very good service e-mail them and they can do a quote on a custom built system within that price range or if your confident enough you could build one yourself.
Don't get any of the computers of trademe I know someone who got one and hes had nothing but problems with it. [Edit] opps only read first page looks like a good system 8GB of RAM is overkill I would go for 6GB max and make sure that the version of windows is 64 bit
