Thoughts on this build?

A friend wants a PC for around the same price as the new consoles, so I've been throwing together some ideas, total price is $681 without operating system, not bad all considering the Xbone is $600 here.

Keep in mind prices are probably higher than you're used to because this is in Australian dollars, we get stiffed down here to counter the fact we earn a buttload more money than Americans.

Other than the PSU, it looks solid for a non-overclocking build. I don't know much about the PSU, but if you can get something like the Corsair CX series, that would be better.
