This is my first attempt at building a pc from scratch myself (noob) It will be mainly used in order of importance, gaming, hd movies & music and web surfing. Components not needed are mouse, keyboard, monitor (using LED TV 200 Hz) and optical drive. This is what I came up with any comments good or bad welcomed!
Intel CPU Core i5 2500K, 3.30GHz, 6MB Cache, LGA1155
Asus P8P67-PRO v3 Intel Mainboard (B3 Stepping)
Gigabyte nVidia GTX570 1GB, DVI X2, Mini HDMI,1280M OC
Western Digital Caviar Black 1TB 7200RPM 64MB SATA3

Cooler Master Sniper SGC-6000 - Black Edition ATX Tower Case
Corsair HX-650 ATX Modular Power Supply
Microsoft Windows 7 Professional 64-Bit
Im gonna get an ssd further down the track as i could not get in my budget which i was aiming for $1500 AUD (wish i could order of newegg)
