There's a sale on a Xeon CPU, Mobo and ram at my local pc store. I made this parts list. What do you guys think of it. http://au.pcpartpicker.com/list/cK6ckT

You don't need a stupid anti static wirst band. The cables aren't compatible with that PSU. That Black HDD is overpriced. What is this for?

Hard to say... Converting AUD to USD brings the total to $456. In US prices, the Xeon E3-1231 V3 is roughly $240. The V5 (DDR4 compatible) is $270. They're pretty much the same in terms of performance. 16GB DDR4-2133 is about $75. Mobo is $150. So, based on solely the conversion rate, it looks like a normal deal. But Australia has some nasty import tariffs, so for you it's likely a good deal.

Still, what matters the most are your goals for the PC. For 1080p video editing, that's a really good build, but a Xeon E3-1231 V3 build would be cheaper. For gaming, it isn't a good deal because an i5-6xxx and H110 / B150 would be cheaper while yielding very close performance (holding the GPU aside).
