First pc build. Just needed some advice on the parts list.

I'm upgrading from my Toshiba laptop (poor thing isn't coping well with all the games I have installed, it absolutely hates Skyrim) and wanted some advice on my parts list. The build will cost around (AUD)$2300 (including software and peripherals). I wanted to go with the gtx1060 6gb to start, with the possibility to upgrade in 2-3 years. I don't know much about future proofing but I hope I have or can do that as much as possible within the constraints of my budget.

Thanks in advance.

Looks pretty good. Ah when office costs more than windows, love it. Id say its not bad.

Thanks so much. Looking at what I have, is there any accessories I would need (cabling, thermal paste etc?). I am really new to pc building and I'm never sure if there's any 'extras' I need to put it all together.

Thanks again!

Thermal paste should come with cpu. Cabling is up to you. If you want sleeving its a personal choice. The psu has all the needed connectors so nothing there. I'd say it's a go. You probably want a few more opinions though to call it safe.
