NZ parts are so expensive! How is this build?

Hey guys, recently I finalized my build but then realized that the total $903 is in US dollars and I only have around $1400 NZ dollars so I don't think thats going to work.
Anyway, I went onto NZ pcpartpicker and picked out a build.
I will mainly be playing WoW and was wondering if you guys could tell me how well it would work/run WoW and if it will last a while. Also tell me if I should drop/add anything.
Thanks guys
Btw the prices in NZ are ridiculous!!

More about parts expensive build
  1. I reduced the price and squeezed in more performance.

  2. Your original build looks fine to me,You can easily overclock that r9 270 to "X" levels.

    Cool thanks mate.
    They will all work together? And I dont have any need for overclocking. I'll only be playing WoW.
    Sorry for the lack of knowledge, first time building PC.

    An do you think I need to overclock? Because by looking at that build you gave me it has overclocking items in it. Does it help a lot at all?
  6. I think you shouldn't really overclock the CPU , maybe the GPU

    Thanks for the quick replies, you're really helping me out.
    Ok and the GPU you gave me in that build looks like it overclocks, but I doubt i'll use the overclocking systems.
    By the way, will this motherboard still be compatible with my build? The one you gave me means I have to order it off a different website.

    Cool, thanks.
    I just have one more thing; the case you gave me says (NO PSU) on the title http://www.aquilatech.co.nz/productDetail.asp?idProduct=CHAZAL0013 so I don't think that's purchasable.

    http://www.computerlounge.co.nz/components/componentview.asp?partid=22665 this looks ok though, will that be workable?
  10. your own build has an imo better case and certainly motherboard in it.The only thing he did for boosting the performance is using a r9 270X instead of the r9 270 you used and like i said is it not that difficult to overclock that one to r9 270X levels.
    If you just want to save money could you use that zalman case he used in your build.

    What does he need in that better case and since he's not going to overclock the CPU the motherboard will be fine . You can overclock it to similar levels but its never going to outperform a 270x also regarding the motherboard you need a 990 AM3+ with 8+2 pins in order to overclock properly which isn't provided in his build neither mine. And my case looks perfect so its all personal preference , take it easy.

    Hahahahaha , I didn't mean to say it as if I'm only proving my opinion and bashing yours . I really respect your opinion and I apologize if it seemed like I was being mean :D
  14. I don't take it personally,otherwise would i have not used this one: :D

    You have the right to defend view on your build. ;) I just try to be lighthearted about it.We have a different view on things,the o.p. in the end has to decide what he wants.:)

    I don't take it personally too but I thought I was a little tough , I always tries to be lighthearted and respectful . At the end the Op decides as you say :D

    Like i said imo nothing,it's good as it is.I don't think the r9 270X is worth the extra money when you can easily overclock the r9 270 in this build to that kind of level.

    You could save some money by going for this psu,

    These people have the same gpu,
