  1. Looks OK, great CPU for the money. The 8600k is my new personal pick for best value. Granted your pricing down there isn't so good, but it's probably your best bet for hitting a budget with.

  2. That should be very god build. You could save some money on the PSU, 650W or perhaps even 550W should be enough. Also if you plan to game online, perhaps you should look into a wired solution, instead of wifi, if possible of course.

    Gonna have to run wiring from my room all the way down to the living/lounge room which I have no idea how much the cables are going to be

    You could look into powerline adapters. But they are very dependant on your houses wiring, so it might not be for everybody.

    But at least the wifi adapter you chose is AC-certified, which should go along way to give you the best experience, if your wifi-router is AC-certified as well.
