Depending on what you are going to be doing, you probably do not need a 980, but if your PSU is generic, an upgrade like what was suggested by i7Baby would be good. Ram should be fine. For more overclocking, a Closed loop cpu cooler would probably be the way to go.

The Seidon is only a 120mm fan radiator cooler. For an i7, I'd prefer to recommend a cooler with a 240mm radiator. Such as the one I linked to.

The Strix is OK. Just not quite as good as the Gigabyte. And you don't seem to have the MSI Gaming version at all in NZ according to PartPicker.

He could get dual 120mm and get a monster rad.
