Though I'm not an AMD guy, I'm fine with just about everything there. Like you said, prices in NZ. WOW!

You may want to look into a better PSU. The corsair CX series are the bottom of all PSU's quality wise, they are known to have problems and break. I'm not sure all that is available, but you may want to try and get something else, like the EVGA SuperNova 650 (but i'm not sure what you have for options).
