$2000 Australian Budget PC Build

Hey peeps! Currently looking at making my own gaming PC and have spent a long time working on this build, which is slightly under 2 grand.
I'd appreciate any changes that you'd make to it, and would love it if you could lower the price without affecting performance.

  1. Hey mate. That's a really nice list. Well thought out, well balanced, and will game like a beast. Bit of an exy keyboard, but thats a personal preference thing. You might be able to save a few bucks (I'm talking $5-$10 here and there on RAM, Mobo, even less on the HDD, SSD) by getting some of that gear from MSY. But if you can get to your local, you'll also save on shipping.

    Just down load pdf price list and call your closest store to check for stock
