I'm planning on building a PC and have chosen these parts and was just wondering if they where any good. I'll mainly be playing Minecraft, G-mod, Skyrim and I might get Battle field 4. By the way the I live in Australia and the price here is $1295.88 The link: http://au.pcpartpicker.com/parts/partlist/

that looks like a build i listed in a thread yesterday. i think this was the thread http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/id-2004918/bf4-gaming-rig-600.html

while it most certainly is not a bad build for the money in the usa some of the prices do not translate well to aus so some different components would need to be selected in some cases. however the general listing of parts is not a bad starting point to start picking based on what is cheaper in your locale.

a fx-6300 would work however a fx-8320 was recommended if its within budget. bf4 can be a hog.

for example.. just by picking different brands you can drop the price to $956aud and get a better cpu at the same time

if you were okay with the original budget what would i change/add?

i would bump yourself up to a 990FX motherboard if you want to overclock, perhaps bump your case up to an antec one, add an operating system to the cost if you dont have one already or perhaps go with a small ssd for boot up.
