I am big contributor here on the forum however I can't solve a simple problem relating to my build (I know you may be thinking what's up with this guy?) Back to the topic, I will need a gaming and photo/video editing (casual editing when I have time) PC. I have already found the parts. However my price seems to be very high.

Here's the build:

Crazy price in Australia.


So could anyone please bring this to my budget about AUD$1600 (preferably AUD$1500) or less and please provide a clear explanation to why you decide to change the parts.

Thanks in advance for everybody who help me with my dilemma. :)

I changed a lot of things.

1. No CPU OC option
2. Xeon performs similarly to i7, don't worry
3. Pair Hyper 212 Evo with Noctua Fan for silence
4. Asrock B85 killer has the Red theme and offers a lot of slots and fan connectors
5. R9 290 has more VRAM, but doesn't perform as well as the GTX 780 by a bit. They're both very high end cards so don't worry about game performance. In fact, a GTX 770 is enough
6. Phantom 410 is smaller and cheaper.
7. Can't go wrong with Seasonic
8. Better wireless adapter

I will need the OC option as I will boost my computer in the future (about 2 years time when I build it).
Like I said with i7Baby I will am more towards the Intel side with an i7 and a NVIDIA card. Appreciate your help.

AMD and Radeon does just as well. 8 cores helps. So does 2560 stream processors

Price wise you'd have to drop to an i5 and GTX760

I'll keep that in mind. But I have heard than i7 is more suitable for photo or video editing. But as you said, price wise, the i7 in Australia are killing me.

Most sound cards are the same imo , quality wise, This is like the cheapest z97 board so maybe not, have you tried the asus z97 k? That's quite good but I think it's the same price as a ranger :/ 
You say you're going to do casual editing, so why not just get a i5? your job doesn't depend on it so a few more minutes won't hurt you

Yes I did think of that last time. But I was told by many people around me and also the "internet" that i7 is a better choice as it will last longer than i5. Dunno mate in terms of the life of these CPU.

But I will change to either a Z87 or 97 and see how this goes for now.

Get rid of the cooler for now, stock will be fine, get a cheaper case, full tower isn't necessary really...

Got rid of the cooler already. Now at $2000 and counting. I searched all day for cases and like how NZXT manufacture their cases so don't kind recommending one by NZXT.

Will stay with same case then. But what are your thoughts on NZXT Phantom Series. I want one that fit my GPU. Price range is as long cheaper than the one I have now. Maybe $170 or less.

They're okay, but removing the drive bay cages only fit up to 305mm I think, you can go for the 410 I guess

You can only remove one :)  Just check on the 410's specs first, they'll tell you, but i think the max card length is 305, 280 without removing if i remember correctly

They're okay, but removing the drive bay cages only fit up to 305mm I think, you can go for the 410 I guess


So if I get the 410. I'll just have to remove one bay right or two?


You can only remove one :)  Just check on the 410's specs first, they'll tell you, but i think the max card length is 305, 280 without removing if i remember correctly


The 780 is 267mm if I am not mistaken (just searched it up just now). Don't mind double checking. So this means I wouldn't have to remove the bays and I will still be saving money. :)

Actually I just searched it up. I will have to remove bays for NZXT Phantom 410 to fit my GPU.

Oh yeah, so I can install my GPU and have 13mm remaining with fan installed. But what about the full pivot, what is that?

In the top left corner of the case there is a fan that can pivot 90 degrees, so it can exhaust at the back, or intake at the top :)

Oh. Would I need to do a pivot with what I will be doing? If not then I will go with the 410 as there should be 13mm remaining if my fan is installed and I do not do a pivot. Is that right. Correct me if I am wrong.

You are not wrong :)  it's just designed to direct airflow better etc. You don't have to use it, it's just a feature really

410 it is so pivot is not so necessary for me I guess??

Before I select as solution, any last thoughts or recommendation.

Thanks for your time. I'll somehow figure out myself what to sacrifice and probably find some cheap stores to buy my parts.

Thanks again for being the last survivor on the thread. :)
