Intel Quad Core i7 3770 CPU + ASUS p8Z77-m Motherboard + 16GB DDR3
All for around AUD$550.
Let me hear the pros and cons please.
New to building and everyone's information and opinion is welcomed and appreciated.
Is this high end, low end or in the middle?
I know 16gb worth of ram is excessive.

It is high end cpu.get k version of cpu i.e i7 3770k will let you overclock your cpu.16gb ram is overkill unless you are huge multitasker.get 8gb ram.that's it all other are fine.

The Intel® Core™ i7-3770K is around $320 USD, the Asus P8Z77-M is around $125 USD and even low end 16GB of DDR 3 1333/1600 is going to set you back around more $80 USD or around $525 USD or converted to under $500 AUD. So is it a good deal? I would guess that it is an average deal.
