I have done some research on 'PC Case Gear' to construct an all "Aussie" rounder PC. For those who use and find How-To Geek very informative but want to build a PC in Australia this is what I have come up with for every day tasks and a bit of gaming. Suggestions, comments and opinions are welcome. It is only the essential parts plus the OS.
