hi guys,

My budget is flexible, but I want to get the most for my money (except for the case :) 

The tricky thing is the prices are quite different in Australia, which makes it a bit harder.

I will be buying it from this place http://www.scorptech.com.au/

here are the items I am considering:

MB: Gigabyte H87-D3H http://www.scorptec.com.au/computer/49909-ga-h87-d3h
CPU: Intel i5-4570 http://www.scorptec.com.au/computer/49852-bx80646i54570
RAM: Kingston 2x4 Kit, 1600MHz http://www.scorptec.com.au/computer/50318-kvr16n11s8k2/...
PSU: Corsair VS450 http://www.scorptec.com.au/computer/48556-cmpsu-vs450
SSD: Plextor PX-M5S 128GB http://www.scorptec.com.au/computer/49527-px-128m5s
Case: Corsair 400R http://www.scorptec.com.au/computer/42096-cc400r (or white phantom 410?)


Future upgrade plans:
-> CPU cooler: CM 212 EVO (or better) http://www.scorptec.com.au/computer/45673-rr-212e-20pk-...
-> Sound card: Creative Sound Blaster Z http://www.scorptec.com.au/computer/48591-sb-z
-> GPU: Gigabyte GTX 760 or new AMD equivalent.

ALL Ideas welcome, thanks for the input

I would normally stick a 1TB HDD where the SSD is, but since you chose it in your build, i did too.
