Hi guys, first time I've ever built a gaming pc so I dont have much knowledge on the subject. I found this build online, can you guys add your thoughts and opinions on it? I want to play games like ESO, titanfall and Total War on ultra settings and this builds within my price range, but I don't know about 290x or GTX 780.

CPU: Intel Core i5 4670K $275
Mobo: ASRock Z87M Extreme4 $155
RAM: 8GB (2x4GB) G.Skill Ares/Sniper DDR3-1866 $105
SSD: SanDisk Ultra Plus 256GB $175
HDD: Seagate Barracuda 2TB $97
GPU: Gigabyte 4GB AMD Radeon R9 290 OC $529 (Use MSI Afterburner to set the fan speed curve to your liking)
Case: Nanoxia Deep Silence 4 $89
PSU: Antec Neo Eco 620W Bronze $97
ODD: Pioneer DVD-RW $20
CPU HSF: Noctua NH-D14 SE2011 $89 (You get PWM fans with the SE2011 version, whereas the regular NH-D14 only comes with voltage controlled fans, also use the ASRock fan control software to tune the fans to your liking)
Mounting Kit: Noctua NM-i115x Mounting Kit For Intel $9
Peripherals: [ 23" LG 23EA53V-P / Ducky 2087/2108 Zero w/ 40A-L o-ring mod / JSCO JNL-101K / Creative Gigaworks T20 Series II ] ($414)

Total: $1,640 ($2,054)

Thanks.

This wouldn't happen to be an Australian build would it?
Those look suspiciously like Australian prices, and not many places can you get Ducky keyboards from outside of SEA and Australia.
