That is maybe a $1000-1100 build at most for the computer and I guess since you don't say what your keyboard, head set, and mouse are, it could be 500-600....add on tax/shipping, maybe.

But could you list what the model is for your Razer Mouse, Keyboard, mouse pad, headset.

and also what site are you using?
By the brand of GPU I'd assume some Australian site which may explain some inflated prices.

For a $2000 budget, you can build a much more powerful rig.

Yeah...for that $2000 price...someone must of been really ripping you off. I would charge someone like $800-900 or something (without adding it all up) to build something that small. What @Joseph DeGarmo posted is more along the lines of what you should be doing.

^--well that's US price :p 

I know here in Canada, it costs me at least 15-20% more to build a computer compared to american prices. Taxes, shipping, inflated prices...it adds up. I'm guessing Australia might be the same or worse. :( 

Until we see what peripherals he got, we can't be certain it's a bad build.

Those must be some really killer peripherals...I know my gaming mouse, keyboard headset and speakers only add up to around $400.

Yea, I think your build is the right price then, then i5-4670k is $270 there and $220 in the US so I would assume everything else is about the same ratio :p  .

Your build in the original post looks good to me.

Edit: you asked what your PC can do

The 770 will be close to the r9 280

You can overclock and SLI later, this will be a nice build for many years to come :)
