  1. you don't need 32GB ram 16GB is more than good you will need ddr4 not ddr3.
    on the CPU get the I5-6600k its a good chip and OC well up to 4.5gz and more with that cooler.
    The PSU is over kill some get a good 600w and the GPU is old look for a GTX 1070 more vram on it at the same price point
  2. Are you sure you need overclocking ability? You can save some cash if you go with non K cpus.

  3. Too much money into the CPU/PSU/unnecessary cooling with a lackluster GPU for the budget.
  4. When building i could see no good price/performance psus in the australian Pcpartpicker site. Like G2 550 or TS 550 gold
  5. http://au.pcpartpicker.com/list/7PfP3F
    +a gtx 970,980,980ti,1070,1080
    Would this be a good build?

    Do you really need 32gb ram? If so, buy a single 32gb kit - http://au.pcpartpicker.com/product/ghPzK8/corsair-memory-cmk32gx4m4a2666c16 or http://au.pcpartpicker.com/product/nK8H99/gskill-memory-f42800c16q32grk .
    Does not have a power supply. Always buy a good quality power supply.

    Otherwise good build.
