Hey Sota ... assuming a resolution of 1080p in your monitor and that you live in the USA, then here's about as good as you can possibly do pushing to the top end of that budget. Dropping any lower sacrifices a fair bit in hardware. It would be awesome if you had $650 frankly, to double the HDD space to 2tb (better value price per GB) and a slightly better motherboard. Anyway, enjoy. PCPartPicker part list: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/qGFKgs Price breakdown by merchant:...
My pleasure. Feel free to contact me again if you need help further, or post here. There is tons of great knowledge and many a helpful person on the forum, when you escape some of the riff raff lol.Good luck mate
Overclocking is not inherently dangerous ... overclocking without knowing what you are doing, and doing the process carefully, informed, and systematically can be. Either way, there's not a lot of need with a reasonable Core i5 or i7 CPU when using a single GPU. It just doesn't do that much in most situations.The i5 4590 is more than fast enough as it is. As for switching the CPU's, there is absolutely zero point buying the i5 4690k unless you are overclocking. None...
I chose the case in terms of airflow, functionality, value, and quality. They make really good cases. Here's one more build, for the budget minded. You wont really lose much if any performance compared with the first build, but it's not as "premium" in my eyes.

2nd option, with a GTX980 but a CPU which won't overclock. Might not matter too much honestly - the rest of the options are essentially the same, mostly because for the few bucks you can save here and there, what you lose isn't worth the price difference.

Here you go - nothing skimped, everything quality parts. Have gone for the overclockable route, so had to stick with a GTX970. It will crush every game at your resolution. All of them. I'm going to do a 2nd build that lowers the CPU overclock side but raises the GPU to the max. There's a choice to be made, but I think this first one is a better long-haul option.

Greetings and welcome RedWolf. I'll start throwing together a build for you (in Aus dollars and using local vendors). Quick question - what monitors are you using, and what are their specs (resolution, refresh rate, etc). Also, is this strictly a gaming build, or are there other functions required?
Thanks burksdb, but I'm looking for headphones as opposed to earphones (I hope I have that distinction right). I was suprised to see Motorola makes such products though - very interesting. Dirtyworks - those Pendulumic headphones look great, really nice cans, but unfortunately they're not available (at least easily) here in Malaysia, and also a fair bit outside of my budget. Still, great suggestion. I wish I had the money to drop on that level, but my disposable income...
Traversing the line between stating the bleeding obvious and "honesty", but yes, thank you regardless, and no I don't have the opportunity to listen to both in a shop hence the need for me to be here asking questions about said products. I will be purchasing from an online retailer. Thanks Dirty Works - I'll have a look into them, but I'm really set on buying bluetooth headphones to be honest.
I hope you're not expecting any +rep for that calibre reply.
