s***ty power supply but the rest is fine if ur not planning to do any overclocking. 1080p 60fps is fine for that but id probably get a better board and psu. maybe a bit faster ram if youre that concerned about squeezing the most out of it and get windows cheap off software swap or elsewhere to help make up the difference.
I cant afford a good vacation, so i'm just going to drink until i dont know where i am.

Also the 4 core i5's are in a bad spot now, go for the i7 or if the budget is tight, ryzen.
If brute force doesn't fix the problem, you're not using enough of it.

-Go with a custom 1070 and not the FE.
-change thePSU.
-buy a z270 motherboard.

But I highly recommend to wait. In 10 days the new Intel-CPU-line will be released, so buy a i5 8600k/i7 8700k. And also buy a z370 motherboard.

Btw your power supply is more than fine. You can easily overclock at anything over 500w with that set up

It's not about the wattager, but the quality. The Corsair VS-line is a Tier 4 PSU, which is basically a firehazard waiting to happen.

To get a good PSU, look a PSU tierlist up and buy a Tier 1 or Tier 2 PSU.

for example.

$1600 AUD is around $1273 USD. I say its worth maybe $800 USD at most, and that be if it was brand new.

It may not be the most relyable supply but for staying within a budget it would be fine. From my experience any power supply is suject to the power lottery. You can get a perfectly long lasting silent one. Or it can grind down to a mess a day later. No brand or tier is excluded
