Is $1200 a fair price for this PC?

Please note this is in Australian dollars so it's more expensive here

With the following options:

Intel Core i7 4770 3.4GHz (LGA-1150) - ($755)
8GB DDR3 1333 Memory - ($60)
1TB hardrive - ($15)
Windows 8 - ($105)
Asus 23.6" monitor - ($65)
2gb Radeon HD7750 PCI-E VGA card - ($60)
Samsung Dual Layer DVD ReWriter - ($20)

Plus labour cost for assembling, which could be anywhere from $80-$120 so I'm going with the higher option.

I've asked for a quote so I may try and haggle them down to $1000-$1050 if I can.

Posted this topic on CE too, but I figure more opinions would be good especially from the PC board.

No that's a weak card

I mean you're in Australia so I don't know, maybe that's good there, but that's a terrible, terrible price here.

I would say it's more of a rip-off than fair.

In Australia everything is a rip off.

To be perfectly honest my friend sent me this build, I have never owned or put together a PC and I asked him for advice on a PC that will play games well, I'm especially looking forward to Elder Scrolls Online and I will play WoW as well. Would you make any changes/recommendations?

Ya, for $1200 I would expect better than a 7750, which is an entry level gaming card

It's not $15, it's a +$15 for an upgrade of whatever the default is to a 1TB

for ~$1100 (what it comes out to in USD) you should have at the very least a 760/7950, if not a 670 or 770.

If it saves any money, drop the i7 to i5-4670k and upgrade the GPU to anything else.
