First gaming build. Need advice!

This is the build I have come up with:

http://pcpartpicker.com/p/wMLJRB

I live in Australia so the prices are expensive in comparison to the US. Overall it costs around $1500. Is it worth me getting the chosen graphics card? Or can I downgrade? I want to know if all the components will fit and if there is any improvements that can be made or cheaper alternatives. I want to run World of Warcraft on ultra if possible. I don't really want to overclock as I don't know how to perform it. I am a newb at building PC's, only good at games D:

Thanks in advance for the responses :)

Definitely worth the GPU. Nothing can beat the 970 in terms of price-performance (maybe 750Ti, but that's another story). If you have the money get the PSU, but if you want to save some it's fine getting the 80+ Bronze category. Everything else looks okay to me. Have fun :D

Will the PC be able to run World of Warcraft on ultra? With the selected components I have chosen?

I never played WoW but general rules goes that the 970 can run anything pretty much maxed out and WoW won't push that much compared to Crysis 3 or other more demanding games.

Is it worth me going with a 256GB SSD or can I go with something smaller?
