Hello, I am building new computer hopefully around $1500.
Please have a look. Any suggestions or notes on potential problems are welcome. I use some 3D architectural programs & graphic programs (inc. 3ds Max & vray rendering) and hoping to play Skyrim at respectful quality. Please have a look and use simple words as I am not good with IT jargon. Thank you for your time.

Cheaper board: http://www.msy.com.au/product.jsp?productId=9032
Difference between Z77 and H77 is that Z77 allows overclocking while H77 does not.

Better psu: http://www.msy.com.au/product.jsp?productId=7998
It is more reliable. Antec High Current Gamer is a really good psu.

Cases are up to you, but I like Corsair cases: http://www.msy.com.au/product.jsp?productId=8256

You migiht want to consider a HDD for storage purposes.
