Building a new system and would like some advice on the parts I've selected before I finalize my purchase.
My budget is AU$ 1200-1400.
Don't really have any exceptional requirements, except that I'd like to stream/upload videos occasionally (though I hear streaming is mostly limited by upload speed, youtube etc). And I'd like it to be able to play current games on not the lowest settings, medium/high would be nice.
I've somewhat followed chaud's build of the month but some parts aren't accessible where I live so some have been replaced.
What I have so far (all costs in AU$):
Processor: INTEL CORE i5 2500K 3.3GHz 6MB RETAIL BOX $228
Aftermarket Cooler: COOLERMASTER HYPER 212 EVO CPU COOLER $45
Motherboard: GIGABYTE GA-Z68A-D3H B3 DESKTOP MOTHERBOARD $155
Memory 1: G.SKILL 8GB KIT DDR3 RIPJAWS X C9 1600MHZ $69
Hard drive 1: WD CAVIAR GREEN 3.5" 1TB 7200/64MB/SATA3 $139
Graphics Card: EVGA GTX560 TI 850M/4104M 1GB/DVI/HDMI $289
Optical drive: ASUS 24x SATA DVD-R/RW/DL BLACK $32
Sound card: CREATIVE SOUND BLASTER VX 5.1 PCI SOUNDCARD $34
Power Supply: COOLERMASTER EXTREME POWER PLUS 700W $109
Network: ASUS PCE-N10 WIRELESS N LITE 150M PCI-E ADAPTER $29
OS: MICROSOFT WINDOWS 7 HOME PREMIUM OEM/64BIT $99
Power Protection: POWER SHIELD 6 WAY SURGE BOARD BK $29
Wondering if anything is missing and also if the sound card/network cards are necessary or if they're integrated onto the motherboard or something (yes, i r total nub).
Apologies about the terrible formatting, couldn't figure out how to get tab spaces to work
