I have a budget of 1000-2000 aus dollars

I'm hoping to get something that can handle heavily modded minecraft and ark: survival evolved
(and smaller games like trove and unturned)

i just need to know the parts i should get and how much they cost + where i can get them shipped to Werribee

Current idea:
CPU: Intel Skylake i7 6700 4-Core 3.4GHz
Motherboard: Intel Z170 Chipset mATX
RAM: 16GB DDR4 Quad DIMM Blue Series
Case: Cooler Master N300 Mid Tower
Power Supply: 700w ATX 80 Plus Bronze
Primary Storage Device: 2TB 7200RPM Hard Drive
Graphics Card: Nvidia GTX 960 2GB
Optical Drive: DVD Internal Writer
Network: WiFi Dual Band AC Ultra-Fast USB Adapter
Operating System: Windows 10 64bit Pro Edition USB

Total: $1,944


Thanks :D

Make sure you get a good quality Mobo and SSDs, they are not all created equal. You get what you pay for and going cheap on those will be a future nightmare.

Added in 3 minutes 58 seconds:
For the record, I built a Skylake system back in October, similar to yours (although many of my parts were recycled from the computer I was replacing).

ASUS Maximus Gene VIII for the mobo and Samsung SSDs.

Also you may want to consider the i5-6500 instead of the i7-6700, you'll see almost no performance difference unless you're running virtual machines and you can save a few bucks there to put towards something else. Then in a few years, you can get an even better i7 after the prices drop more.

Lastly, don't get the 960. If you're going to drop $2K on a system, get a better video card. I'd not go any lower than a 970.
