Would this be a good Overclocking/Gaming rig under 900$

Hello, as the title states, are these parts good for oc'ing and gaming, and because im in Australia most things are a lot more expensive than america.

Here are the parts
Asus M5A99X-EVO

Gigabyte nVidia GeForce 650 Ti BOOST

AMD FX 6300 Six-Core - AM3+

Thermaltake Water 2.0 Performer Enclosed Liquid Cooling System

Thermaltake TR2 Bronze 800W

Hitachi Deskstar 7K1000.C 1TB

Lite-On Super AllWrite SATA DVD Re-Writer OEM

Logitech G300 Gaming Mouse

Logitech G105 Gaming Keyboard

NZXT Guardian 921 RB

All the parts come to about 900$ here in Australia and about 50$ shipping. I am also buying off centrecom.com.au
and i have got all my previous builds from them!

Thanks in advance, Dan

  1. At first a gaming mouse and keyboard are not necessary and you can put that money towards better components. Here are some alternatives to your choices. I found all of these on amazon.

    ok sorry, that stinks that they don't ship to australia but still take my advice and don't get the mouse and keyboard yet, use the money for a better cpu. Did you know most gamers perfer just a normal keyboard. Although a lot of players use razer mice, i have one and they are really nice. They are not as important as a cpu though.
