    That's USD not AUS so his actual budget is $675 USD.

    Here's a better build @thejordan1221 :

    Remove the speakers and keyboard to upgrade the PSU to something that's 600w+ so you can do future upgrades without a wattage problem.

    I think a good computer for self built should cost around 500$ USD but it can definitely be cheaper if you cut corners.
