Hey everyone, I've built PC's for my old man's office years ago, and am about to begin putting together my first gaming rig. Just wanted to see what everyone thinks of these prices before I buy. All prices are in AUD and I live in Geelong, so using local businesses to save on shipping costs...

CPU: Intel Core i5-3570K $235
GPU: Gigabyte Radeon HD7970 $395
Mobo: Asrock Z77-Extreme4 $119
RAM: 1x 8GB G.Skill Ripjaw 1600Mhz $68
Case: Coolermaster SGC1000KWN1 $86
PSU: Coolermaster RS700ACABM3 Thunder 700Watt $85
SSD: Samsung 840 Series 128 GB $99

I'm re-using a few parts from previous builds (ODD, HDD) and work as a brand ambassador for Msoft so have an OS handy. What do you guys think?

Cheers!
