Hey guys i'm currently useing a dell xps 17 with an i7-2760 and a geforce gt555m and it's a great rig but when i'm gaming it just doesn't quite do what i want. The main issue is it gets really hot i live in Australia and 30C is nothing in summer and i have seen my cpu and gpu temps hit 70C which makes the entire laptop really hot, loud and uncomfortable to use. Borderlands 2 at 1600x900 and high details runs at 30fps and really hot (you could probbably fry an egg on it).
So the plan is to build myself my first system.
Aim: I'm currently playing borderlands 2 with my mates and i plan to play crysis 3 at 1080p high details at 40+ fps and cool and quiet.
Budget & Location: I live in australia and what i have priced out is just under au$1400
Monitors: Just the one at 1080p already owned
Peripherals: I have already
Now the fun bit please let me know how i have gone and any changes i should make.

My local website is pc case gear https://www.pccasegear.com/index.php
Here is a pc part picker link http://pcpartpicker.com/p/M18N it's a USA link as the Australian site doesn't have all the parts listed for some reason.
I'm still wondering about the graphics card gtx660ti, hd 7870 or gtx660.
Also should I drop the hard drive and get the next size up ssd (Samsung 840 250GB is $198) and do you think the h100i is overkill in this rig and if so what would a good substitute be allowing for high ambient temps in summer while still being quiet.
So what do you think?
