Been meaning to upgrade but it's been so long that its easier just to build from new. Intention is that it will be mainly for gaming, and have been able to price the below build to be around $2k AUD. This is my intended build and would appreaciate any feedback on this:
CPU- Intel Core i5-760 Motherboard- G-B P55A-UD3P Optical Drive- SATA Blu-Ray Combo Samsung Storage- Kingston SNV425-S2 SSD 2.5” 64G Hard Drive- WD SATA 2 Tb Memory- 8G Kit(4GBx2) ddr3 2000 Patriot Viper Xtreme Case- Antec Nine Hundred Two - Black Ultimate Gaming Case (No PSU) GPU - GB 1GB 5870 Sound Card - Auzentech X-Raider 7.1 Sound Card OS - Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit OEM PSU - Corsair 750HX
Would like to know what people think about suitable cooling and network cards too?

Don't need a sound card, don't need a network card. BluRay is kinda an expense that isn't necessary either. 8GB is excessive.
Basically. Case is good, CPU is good, PSU is good, SSD is good, OS is excessive unless you need the added security.
