After doing some reasearch, I'm thinking of going with this:


CPU: Intel Core i5-4440 3.1GHz Quad-Core Processor (The overclockable ones are RIDICULOUSLY expensive here, it's more than double the price)
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-B85M-D3H Micro ATX LGA1150 Motherboard
Memory: Corsair Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory
Storage: Seagate Barracuda 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive
Video Card: Zotac GeForce GTX 780 3GB Video Card
Wireless Network Adapter: TP-Link TL-WN751ND 802.11b/g/n PCI Wi-Fi Adapter
Case: Corsair 300R ATX Mid Tower Case (400R and 500R are unavailable here)
Power Supply: Corsair CX 600W 80+ Bronze Certified Semi-Modular ATX Power Supply (Recommended is 500W, but I figure a little more is good for future proofing)
Optical Drive: LG GH24NSB0 DVD/CD Writer (Pretty much just for installing windows))
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 8.1 Pro - OEM (64-bit)

Is there anything wrong/missing or am I good to go?


That looks solid.

Now go to pcpartspicker.com

It would've made this process simpler for you from the start, but it's still a good idea now to see prices for each parts and to see if there are any compatibility issues.


That was built on PC part picker actually, which really makes me jealous of you americans. My RAM, that's listed as $88 there, will cost me about $230, and the gpu about $900 instead of $500

Wow that's kind of insane. I pay slightly more because I"m canadian but if I had to pay that much I'd wait and import a steam machine.
