    Looks decent. I agree with the ozbargain comments on the power supply, my only other question mark would be on the SSD. If 240 is enough for what you're thinking then no dramas, but I'd be looking at adding more. Whether that be a standard hard drive or a second SSD is up to you, Windows will obviously chew up a decent chunk of that 240GB too, but I notice they allow you to customise both the OS SSD and a secondary one if you choose. I don't know anything about that motherboard, maybe someone else here has some intel on them?

    For $1,188, seems pretty reasonable given the graphics card seems to be worth about $800 alone.

    AMD cpu's are leading the market currently so no complaints on that front either.

    Agree with Rumblah about SSD + PSU. I went for a 1tb NVMe SSD drive a while ago just so I wouldn't have to mess around, certainly not needed, just a nice to have. I got this one a couple of years ago and it's gone well - https://www.pccasegear.com/products/...2-nvme-ssd-1tb.

    Worth noting that it doesn't seem to include an operating system which might push the price up a bit more.

    Overall, seems a pretty reasonably priced system but I haven't kept a close eye on stuff lately (but hear lots complaining about everything going up in price).

    Long story short, GPUs have been horribly priced for 9mths or so now and only just coming down in price. This has affected everything, so a gpu that should cost say $400AUD now cost $700 etc.

    In terms of that deal, you're basically paying for the GPU, with the rest worth $500 or so at best. Would definitely agree to changing the PSU. If you're going to do it through them, take the Bronze not the Gold as the Gold is likely to be a Gigabyte P750GM or P850GM which are both death traps.

    Thanks lads, I will grab it with the bronze PSU and a larger SSD.

    Do you think 16gb ram will be enough or should I get upgrade to 32gb?

    16gb should be fine

    You can always upgrade the ram later on.

    16gb is fine. 32 gb is nice to have, I've got 16 at the moment and don't really have many issues outside of when I get my 50 odd tabs open and other stuff.

    Even then, ram hardly hits 100%

    It's all the other numbers on RAM that matters more these days, 16GB will be enough for everything but video processing and CAD work and even then you'll probably survive unless you're at the intense end of those uses.

    It's a terrible time to be buying a PC right now because of the extreme GPU shortage, at the moment GPUs are going for more than it cost for an entire high end system 18 months ago, it's actually legit crazy.

    That one's not bad value all things considered though, as the others have said, you're just about getting everything else for free with the markup on the card. Worth noting that's previous gen on the whole system, the RTX 2060 is the previous generation budget card that should be in the $300 range by now but is instead going in the $850+ range but that's the market.

    Can probably build a much better system for that amount if you've got an older card and wait for the card prices to get back to reality before getting the final part but if you need a full system that's not a bad price at all.
