    Only thing i'd say is the GraphX card is only a 7300GS and thats pretty old... But otherwise i'd say a good buy.

    If you are at all intrested in or able to build your own system, you could do A LOT BETTER than that for that price. The 7300 graphics card is not enough for realy good gaming!
    That is a lot of money for that system.

    wayyyy too expensive for that build

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819103773
    170$
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131096
    90$ (and there a re much better choices, but I'm just showing you how overpriced the build id right now)

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822144098
    no brand listed so just a compatible spec hd for 60$

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231098
    85$

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130270
    52$

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824014131
    285$

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16821103203
    7$

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16827136118
    dual layer burner 30$

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16836116025
    80$

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817171013
    80$

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16826104191
    46$

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16823126009
    54$

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811129021
    120$

    grand total for the exact same computer 1159$ and yes that ebay listing doesn't include any software except that which comes with the hardware already. (ie no os or office)

    so for under 2500$ you could build a rig more than trwice as good as that.

    so if you can't build one yourself, check out
    www.ibuypower.com

    you'll end up with a much better rig for your money. and really price compare always whenever buying expensive things (houses cars, computers, electronices, appliances etc)

    even still by the conversion rate, the 2199 AUD comes to 1809 u.s. dollars vs $1159 (1368AUD)
    and I'll bet theres a better austrailain retailer.
