News flash 720p is not high resolution dude!

Not only good for 1080, but 1080p 144 fps. Left you a lot of room so you could afford a fancy monitor if you want

board is complete garbage, VRM thermals on it are horrible.

spending extra for an SFX PSU on an ATX rig makes no sense, plus the cables might be too short to fit.

then you got the fact that you completely ignored the part about OP being in Australia. In Australian dollars.

This parts list needs a lot of work. Motherboard that has hot VRMs so bad overclocking, but great cooler for overclocking. Extra money on an SFX PSU when you can easily just toss a TX550M in there. A really overly expensive case for what it offers (unless the specific inner dimensions really appeal to the builder). Overly expensive SSD for a mere gaming build, offering no tangible performance uplift
