Well the Noctua NH-D14 fits in the 500R. With a budget of 1200-1400 that should work. I'll get to linking off newegg

Like most people have suggested, bigger case, and a CPU cooler.

There's really no point in getting a K processor if you don't plan on overclocking. The 2500K is extremely easy to overclock, you should check out a Hypermaster 212+ for under $30. You can overclock to around 4.5ghz with it.

A larger case would be a good idea. The 300 isn't a bad case, but it lacks space. You can usually find cases on sale each week on Newegg.com. I know they had the Coolermaster Storm Scout for $70 recently.

I was going to suggest a Western Digital Black HDD, but didn't realize the price on drives has increased tremendously. They want $230 for a drive that I paid $85 four months ago. It might just be a good idea to spend a little more for a SSD. Newegg usually has $200 SSDs with rebates for $150. This would be a good idea if you don't need the space at the moment. Standard HDD prices should fall in the spring when production returns to normal levels.

Everything else looks good. My Gigabyte 570gtx overclocks nicely, around 900/2000. At those frequencies it will give you the same performance as a 580gtx.

Where in Aus? pccasegear is pretty good. MSY tends to be a bit cheaper with RAM and the 2500K.

Corsair H50 or some extra $ for H60 & H70...if you dont want WC for first build np i heard corsair gonna refund u the exact same system if it leaks dont quote me on that
If you get the H50 dont buy fancy colorful fans with hope that temp will drop 5C.

Like many others have mentioned, grab a CM 212+ if you can. It's a great budget cooler and all you need if you ever do a light overclock. It really is pretty easy to overclock the 2500k and all the guides here make it even easier.

If you plan on going with Ivy Bridge and PCI/e 3.0 you might want to check if that board is compatible. Last time I checked their site it will support Ivy but I didn't see anything about PCI/e 3.0.

I'd also hold off on getting a new case if you can get one for free that will work for you. Try out the free one first and then if you don't like it grab a new one.

Corsair Hydro coolers are a bit over priced here. NH-D14 is much better priced for the temps it gives.

EDIT: MSY have stores in Auburn and Ultimo, that work for you? Otherwise I'd say go with pccasegear, shipping for all of your components should be about $60, they're based in Melbourne I think.
