First PC I've ever put together, I made a post earlier today and all the bloke said was to lower the psu and change the cert from bronze to gold and you're good to go. I'm fairly happy with everything else, how would changing the GPU from what it is (270x) to the other dual sapphire one, that and makes.

PC is strictly 1000 AU dollars.

Getting a gold PSU is kind of premium. The only difference between Gold and Bronze is its efficiency, it won't tell how well the components are made. Bronze supplies will save you some costs. Everything else does look good though if you are able to squeeze an 280 then do it.

Changed the motherboard, memory, PSU and optical drive to cheaper equivalents - none of these changes will impact gaming performance.

Then replaced the GPU with a 280, quite a bit more powerful than a 270x. Saw your other post saying you would a full tower if possible, added one.
