Need some advice on first build


Dec 21, 2012
I have been asking around and getting advice for my first build, at the moment I have all the parts selected but I was hoping to possibly get someone or a few people to review it, point out anything I may have missed or possibly suggest some points of upgrade. The build is meant for gaming primarily, I want to be able to play most if not all current titles on high or max settings with a decent fps, as well as the occasional video editing/recording.

Current PC is a razer laptop which is a few years old. For the most part It runs okay but I do see substantion fps drops when playing games on medium+ settings. Anyway, here is the build;

Should also not that I am in Australia, aiming to get all of the parts off this website, and my budget is roughly 1, 500 -2, 000 dollars. I really don't have much understanding when it comes to building computers, or computers in general, so thanks in advance for the advice :D.

PS: I have a monitor; already, but will probably upgrade it in the not too distant future.

Most, if not all, modern games used no more than 4 GB. So 16 GB you were planning will be just sitting there, doing nothing. So 8 Gb is more than enough.
