I need some help in build a PC. This is my first time having ago at it and i need some help picking out parts. I have a link down there to my current build but if anyone could help it would be much appreciated.
I have a budget of $1400 (AUD) and i must have a wireless network adapter.My mates said check the power supply and the motherboard.Also i have everything i need eg. screens, mouse, keyboard and i do not plan to do any overclocking on my system.

-Cheaper processor. The only difference is the 300mhz difference but you won't notice any performance difference.
-Cheaper motherboard. you don't need a Z87 chipset board if you're not overclocking. A H87 chipset will be cheaper and perform the same.
-Cheaper RAM, same performance.
-Cheaper SSD, but you won't notice any speed difference between the EVO and the Pro.
-Stronger gpu.
-Better quality psu.
