So my Parents said i can have a 18th Birthday party that was all up going to cost $1000 (GoKarts, Aus is expensive) and then they said i can have a party or a computer, I chose to go the computer way because at the end of the day i can maybe push the computer to last about 5 years which i've done with my mums MBP, that has died more times than i can even count, i was just wondering if some of you 'experts' out there could give me some advice on this build i put together, im not too worried about the HDD or the monitor and keyboard and mouse ect.. i'll get them all later i have a few old ones laying around that'll do till i can save up and buy some better ones, im not too worried about the colour scheme either i just want a computer that well is better and will last longer then the one i have atm,

idk if the thing below has worked or not but i hope

Yeah I live in Western Australia so a $1000 PC is about a $800USD computer im fairly certain because WE GET NOTHING OVER HERE AND IT'S ALL EXPENSIVE AF

Just wanna know if you guys can look over this one i made and give me some pointers or give me something that's better? THANKS

I did post this in another section but then realised it was the wrong section sorry :/

  1. Top right corner, you can change the location to Australia.
  2. The i5-6500 has better performance/value as the i5-6600 as it is only 100 Mhz slower.
  3. You could get similarly performing but cheaper RAM
  4. From the money just saved, you can secure a gaming grade motherboard
