  • Help building new gaming PC

    Hi folks.

    Looking at building a new gaming PC on a moderate budget. Your valuable thoughts on the components and how they work together (or any other suggestions) would be appreciated. I want to play FPS + strategy games as well as use it for office productivity, Photoshop and surfing. I would also like to over-clock.

    CPU:
    Intel i5 Socket 1150 4690K
    MOBO:
    MSI Z97-Gaming 3
    RAM:
    KINGSTON HYPER X FURY 16 GB KIT
    GPU:
    MSI GTX 970 GAMING 4G

    I want to retain these existing components:

    Case:
    Fractal Design Define R2
    Cooler:
    Noctua NH-D14
    PSU:
    Antec TruePower TP-650
    Drives:
    (C) Seagate SATA 3.5" Internal Hard Disk Drive 500G (quantity = 2 for RAID 0)
    (D) Seagate SATA 3.5" Internal Hard Disk Drive 1T (quantity = 2 for RAID 1)
    Sound Card:
    Sound Blaster SB Recon3D

    Considering a new 24-inch 1ms 144Hz monitor, but they are a bit spendy in AU!

    Thanks in advance!
