I'm thinking of building myself my first computer. I've researched the parts, and I'm pretty sure that they are all compatible.
It's basically going to be a general use machine (internet, listening to music, some gaming), but also image editing (Photoshop), audio editing, and possibly some video editing in the future too.
So my questions:
Do you think it would suit my needs well?
Are there any substitutes that would be better and/or cheaper?

I'm in Australia, and I'm using this Australian site for the parts.
All up, these parts cost $1,101.80 AUD, but there would be a $75 fee if i wanted them to assemble it.
Thanks for your time
