    Your cutting it super close with that PSU get a better brand as well like corsair, cooler master, EVGA, or rosewill and increase the wattage with a gold standard. Other than that its a solid build though I would get 1-2 250GB SSD's one for OS and both for program installs and a single 2 TB drive for media.

    From a brief scan of the text, I'd say an 8.75/10 mid-range build

    I apologize, as I am too drunk right now to be able to look up everything but I just wanted to drop in and say congrats on the new PC! I built my last one about a year ago and I just don't have the budget to build another for a while. But I am envious of you. Hey, I love you, man! (I feel like Yanosh from Ghostbusters 2, right now.

    With an i5, I'd have gone with a Z170 mobo instead of a H110.

    I would add a small SSD for your OS and some Programms like Office.
    No Idea what NZD are worth but seems sounds very expensive you don't even add an I7 or a GTX 980 ...

    About $1000US, and in my opinion, ooh, probably just about worth the money for that rig....
    Shopping around, or better still getting your own parts and building yourself, and I reckon he'd have saved a bit, or at least got some better parts for the same outlay - for instance you can get a Geforce GTX 780 for roughly the same price as a 960 with some shopping around (here in the UK at least) - I know which one I'd get out of those two! ;)
    Really though, decent value for a decent mid-range rig! If you can find a small SSD for the $80 you have left to put the OS etc on, like has been said earlier, then you'll feel the difference!

    It's hard to get used to after MS Office! (For me at least...)

    Your PSU's fine. The Gold standard ones would be a bit of a rip for that build, a 520w bronze would've been a slightly better choice though.
