My budget for the new computer is:
under $3000 Aus (guessing around 2500 us)

What are the primary uses for this computer (IE: mail, web browsing, programming, games, etc)?
Gaming, web browsing and light video editing

What software do you intend on using on the computer?
Mainly games

Do you play games? If so, what type of games?
Americas army 3 (needs good cpu), bf:bc2, cod games and newer Fps as they come out

Do you tend to have a lot of programs running at the same time, or do you close every program when you are done using it?
Keep them open, msn, wmp, several web browsers, ts2/3 and sometimes with games running.

Do you store a lot of pictures or music on the computer?
I use external hdd for storage.

I was also after a I7 cpu with a Nvidia GTX 460M or better, I want to stay away from ATI as I have never had a good experience with ATI cards.

I'm not worried about look, the plainer the better and I'm also not a big fan of anything dell but if there isn't any other options I would still get one.

Any advise and suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

I'm in NSW, but only an hour from the fyshwick branch the ACT, They don't have any stock there but I have put in a order for one and will wait for them to contact me.
I have never gotten parts from msy before because the web site wasn't that good but it has improved a lot in the last few months so and the branch in fyshwick has opened up so I'll probably start getting all my stuff from there now :)

Looks like the Asus G73JW-TZ039V is being phased out for the Asus G73SW-FHD-TZ016V, only difference I can find is the cpu which is the new I7 2630QM and has a clock rate of 2.0GHZ and turbo of 2.8 From what I can find vs 1.73/ 2.93, I don't need it for another 2-3 weeks so I guess I will hang out until MSY have then in stock as they don't have the JW at my branch, the extra clock speed will come in handy for Americas army 3

They have them at scorp tech, same prise so I'm guessing msy will do the same, even if they are $100 or so more it will be worth the extra peformance
