Hey guys,

Looking to build my first PC in time for VR as I have finished studying and will be working in the industry, and I've never really had a decent gaming rig, so that's pretty exciting as well.

Sadly, due to moving recently, I haven't really got anything aside a subpar laptop that got me through uni, so I'll also need all the bells and whistles; monitor, mouse, keyboard etc.

Budget is not strict, but would like to keep it in the given ballpark (which I understand is a large range) so feel free to let me know what you think is best.

Thanks heaps in advance!

Fantastic list. I'm actually surprised it only costs as much as it does considering how steep AUD prices usually are.
