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

here are the items I am considering:

MB: Gigabyte H87-D3H
CPU: Intel i5-4570
RAM: Kingston 2x4 Kit, 1600MHz
PSU: Corsair VS450
SSD: Plextor PX-M5S 128GB
Case: Corsair 400R (or white phantom 410?)

Future upgrade plans:
-> CPU cooler: CM 212 EVO (or better)
-> Sound card: Creative Sound Blaster 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.
