So as the title says this is gonna be a 1700AUD pc build for one of my friends who wants to properly get into pc gaming. 

It is mainly going to be used gaming and being a general family comp when he's not using it. 

It needs to be a full gaming comp with peripherals and a monitor.

This is what I have I have so far but I think it can be better:

That doesn't look too bad. I would only change the HDD, I personally have only had issues with Seagate barracudas.

if you are looking at budget, then any mechanical with a backlit. otherwise its cherry/romer-G switches to go for.

 

mouse i usually do logitech a look with their Gxxx series.

 

headset you will have to ask someone else, i usually just recommend the hyper X cloud though there are definitivly better options

Can allways do a Vega build if he is willing to go a little over. Australia is one of the few places it makes a lot of sence picking up Vega
