$2000 AUD Gaming PC Build Needed

Hey :)

I am looking for a $2000 AUD gaming setup ($2200 maximum). I will use this mainly for gaming (as i previously mentioned) as well as light video editing/recording (not too serious). I want something that runs Minecraft at very high FPS (i will be recording Minecraft and need high quality), as well as other games such as CSGO and DOTA 2. Im new to the whole building PC thing, been a mac user up until this point. It would be great if the design of the PC allowed me to upgrade in the future too. I live in a rather hot climate (Northern Australia) but i don't know if this is relevant at all haha. Please keep in mind that i am somewhat of a 'noob' and am open minded and willing to learn :) Thanks in advance! :D

What i already have: Mouse, Headset, Speakers, A half TB portable USB

What i need: The computer case & the guts (CPU, CPU cooler, Motherboard, RAM, 1TB storage?, Video card, Power supply, Optical drive), Keyboard, Monitor, Operating system (Anything else i forgot that i would need?)

If what i need is not possible within my $2000-2200 budget, please let me know and provide an estimate on what my realistic budget should be :) Thanks for your time

This should be able to run the games you've listed like hot knife on butter. Black/Blue themed. Generation 6 processor paired with a GTX 970 will play any game you throw at it. The CPU cooler, and I know I'm going to get a lot of "criticism" from this as the processor is a locked CPU, will keep your CPU cool even in the heat of Australia. I've been to Australia and I know how HOT it can get. SSD to store your video/recording softwares. HDD to store the games. The PSU is Gold certified made from SeaSonic, the best PSU manufacturer in the market. 650W allows head room for future upgrades.
