The mouse and keyboard you can downgrade if you want, you don't need a gaming keyboard if you're not gonna use the macros, extra ports, etc. Microsoft 600 wired is perfectly fine, and a heck of a lot cheaper.
Speakers, again not sure if you want 5.1 or just 2.1
Lastly, that monitor can probably be cheaper. I just put it in there because I've got the same model at work it's good, but like I say you could probably sub in a different 23" monitor with very similar specs for cheaper.
edit: oh, and just realised I'm missing a 3rd party CPU cooler. You'll want that for WHEN (not if lol) you overclock your CPU. That should only be an extra 60-80 bucks tho.

If you feel comfortable with assembling it. I have to agree with S0ULphIRE. Since you can afford it there is no reason not to go intel. Sure I love AMD but that doesn't mean you should Do whats right for you man. If you want the best it's intel right now. As he has it spec'd that rig will play any and all games @ max settings for now and the foreseeable future.

Good 3rd party cooler would be this one
AC-FRZER-13PRO : Arctic Cooling Freezer 13 PRO CPU cooler : Bargain @ ddcomputer.com.au
Not too expensive, quiet, and decent performance

looks great i'd probably put in a solid state hard drive for the OS and i'd want a little bit more ram then that and did you forget that i need to go online via wireless (thanks though, cause now i know what hardware i need)

There's an SSD in there already, and if you want more ram you can go with this set.

Though tbh 4Gb should be plenty for everything except high quality video editing and photoshopping

It's pretty much what I'd get if I was gonna build me a rig except I'd get a second 1TB hdd and a better mobo that can handle the extreme OC runs I like doing
