I have just spent some time to sit down and do some research on parts for a new computer. I was wondering if someone could have a quick look over my build, as I'm not 100% sure what I'm doing. I'll use it mostly for gaming. One other thing is I live in Australia, so the parts have to be able to be shipped there (Although that's something ill do myself probably)

drop a little money from your mobo and maybe your cpu and spend it on your gpu that's really the heart of a gaming pc and your going to get better performance in the newer more demanding games

I don't think he should drop money on those but unless necessary. I think a GTX 760 is worth the price increase if you can afford it.

I have ended up taking the advice and lowered the prices a little, I've put a little more money in to the PSU and GPU instead as suggested. the mobo I'll use now seems just as good and CPU is 4 core instead of 6

On a re-think I've changed back to the 6 cores for nine dollars more

You're doing fine. My only Suggestion is getting a PSU made my Corsair, Seasonic, or EVGA.

I would also drop the memory down to 4GBs. This isnt an ultra setting gaming pc so you will never use more then the 4GBs.. at most 3GBs (with 1GB running the OS).
