The tax really depends on the price of the item, if it is equal to or less than $1000 AUD, then there is no extra tax, but if the item costs more than $1000 AUD our government put a tax on it even though they do nothing to help the item get into the country, it's the shipping companies that should get the extra money, not the government.
If you have any other questions about the build. Don't hesitate to ask.
Though you pay a lot less for tech than us in Australia. I compared the currencies and CAD and AUD are nearly the same, yet in Canada technology is so much cheaper, in some cases $150 - $200 less, than in Australia.
Damn I wish I live in Canada. You guys have free healthcare, fibre internet, cool climate, nice people and cheap AF products and your government actually know what their doing. In Australia we have free healthcare, but our internet sucks and has no hope of getting better, our climate is torture, our people are weird and technology and goods over here are expensive AF because our government love to tax things for fun and then waste the money on crap we don't need.
I'm from Australia. I got all my parts, except the case, from a shop called MSY, at Morningside. My case had to be ordered by another PC store called PC Choice.
As for the parts list, I didn't even know about PC Part Picker at that time, lol. I got my friend to help me choose the right parts.
Why did you put your RAM in the two slots next to each other? Most motherboards make you put the RAM one slot apart for two modules? Unless that's what it said in the mobo manual.
Not sure, since there are 4 other fans in the system. But I don't think so, when gaming it gets loud, but I'm fine with that since I will have headphones on and I don't care how hard my PC works to stay cool. :)
I just put benchmarks for R6 Siege, Battlefield 1 and Titanfall 2 in the description. Battlefield 1 and Titanfall 2 are rough estimates.
Cable management is a tight squeeze in the Spec M2. I recommend getting a fully modular PSU.
That's a really nice pc and I think it has a lot of potential to look amazing. The parts you picked are very well selected and quite ready for future upgrades like liquid cooling. I would love to see you put some LED strips in there and that would really make the PC pop.
Very nice...very nice.
Maybe clean up the PCIe power cables and the water cooler's pipes a bit
The i3 barley bottlenecks the 1060 at all.
Yah, I'm looking at a 6600
Thanks man, I'm gonna upgrade to a 6600 in the future and get a good third-party cooler
