Default Australian budget PC build

Hey guys, Im looking for a new PC to play Borderlands 2, Minecraft and Half life. My budget is $500-600, and I need some help selecting parts. I am In Australia and everything here is more expensive. I already have the CPU, which is the FX 6300, I have a monitor, keyboard and mouse. Any help is appreciated! Thanks

Newegg now serves Aus, but not all of the parts are available. I will mark these just to give you an idea.

Motherboard:
ASRock 990FX Extreme3 AM3+ AMD 990FX + SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard with UEFI BIOS - Newegg.com

RAM:
PNY XLR8 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model MD8192KD3-1600-X9 - Newegg.com

PSU: Not available -
SeaSonic S12II 620 Bronze 620W ATX12V V2.3 / EPS 12V V2.91 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply - Newegg.com

GPU: Not available
Newegg.com - EVGA 02G-P4-2763-KR GeForce GTX 760 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 SLI Support w/ EVGA ACX Cooler Video Card

HDD:
Seagate Barracuda ST1000DM003 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive - Newegg.com

Case: Not available
Corsair Carbide Series 200R Black Steel structure with molded ABS plastic accent pieces ATX Mid Tower Computer Case - Newegg.com

Obviously you'll have to find a site that will ship the items in your country. The RAM is basically a place holder. 2x4GB of 1600MHz RAM of any brand, so whatever is the cheapest is good. The PNY is just an example of the cheapest RAM available on Newegg.
I would stick to the GPU selected and the PSU but the case is personal preference and another place holder.

You can try MSY for Aus based parts - they're usually pretty cheap
Select Store
