Need different memory.

Can anyone recommend different memory? I can't get the Kingston memory listed for that price as it's not available through CPL, out of stock or end of line or something. I had 16gb Crucial memory in there for the same price, but was told it was bad (Not sure why)... Anyway, recommendations available in Australia would be lovely thanks..

Was also told the to change the PSU to something else. Is this due to it being overkill and just change it to something with less power? It wasn't explained. Thanks.

Power supply: you're paying a lot for what your current PC would need. Just bump down to a lower-end EVGA model. But not their B1 or W1 series. Stay between 550-650W. Opt for 650 if you'll be overclocking everything and plan on getting another 1070 in 1-4 years. In my opinion, I'd stick with 650W even if I was only overclocking the CPU. I like the headroom and I like keeping the system at 50-75% of the PSU's max wattage. They're about 2-4% more efficient at that 50-75% load, and I like having the option of running dual GPUs.

Memory: 2666, 15CL is a real sweet spot for performance per $ (at least in the US it is). Roughly speaking, DDR4-2666 with CL15 is similar to DDR4-2400 CL14 and -2800 CL16.

The only issue is in Australia the G2 550W isn't in stock and the 650W is more expensive than the 750W!

Yes, I see what you mean about that, Australia is a funny place.

However, this would be appropriate, right? - https://www.pccasegear.com/products/36922/evga-650-gq-power-supply (Not sure if i can post outside links)

That is perfectly fine: http://www.jonnyguru.com/modules.php?name=NDReviews&op=Story6&reid=454

Only difference is 5 year warranty instead of 10 and semi-modular. Though hard wired cables are the ones you always use so not a problem.
