So, how's this for a $1000AUD gaming PC?

After doing a little bit of research, I've come to this build.

Can someone give me some feedback on it please?
Or shave a bit of money off? c:



I would go with a Z97 chipset motherboard off the bat.  Z87 boards may need a bios update, and if you do need a bios update, you need an older CPU to get into the BIOS.

The Kingston SSDNow v300 has changed over the past couple months.  They have switched from synchronous flash to asynchronous flash, resulting in very random performance and often half the speed of other SSDs.

Otherwise, it looks ok.


I would recommendgetting the MSI R9 290 (But that is just me :) It's $60 more, but could be worth it for you...

What this guy said. 
AUD prices are ridiculous.
