Description

So this is my first build in quite some time, I didn't quite get the colour coding right but with the help of some LED's in the future should fix this.

At time of buying the i7 6700k was the best out I could have gone the cheaper alternative and bought a i5 but who wants subpar.

My only regrets with this build were the kraken x31 the platinum ram and the sshd drive The kraken I didn't realize the x31 can't light up The ram comes with the standard white LED that can't change colours as far as i know And the SSHD I bought from ebay with the 20% off tech sale it was last in stock and I didn't know anything about sshd's at this point so decided to go with it.

I was lucky enough to get the G1 1080 on sale for $1k so that saved a bit and was able to get GST back with the TRS scheme at the airport so the total build cost was $2538

Jeez, that's crazy. Do you guys get paid more though? Or other things are cheaper compared to places like the US and UK?

Well our dollar is only worth 75c US roughly, so everything is pretty relative, we do earn more I think average wage according to the bureau of stats is $1500 a week before tax, so tax is another 30% so average wage would be about 1000 - 1200 (depending on what tax deductions you can claim) a week. So comparing that to US would be around $770 - $923

Yeah pretty much but buying overseas is still alot cheaper its just Australian retail and tax that makes everything here alot more than it should be.
