Add an SSD, a computer at that price should have one. And do you really need Windows Pro? If you don't then the saving from dropping down to Windows home will pay for the SSD.

Also, change the video card. No reason to buy a GTX 970 when you should be able to get a GTX 1060 6GB version for around the same price. It's faster, more ram, and better DX12/driver support.

For both list change the SSD to 240-256 GB, this will give more room for applications. Also for the second list get a 1050Ti as it will be much faster and you can play new AAA titles a lot better then the 750Ti.

What is your budget and where are you buying from? Looks like Australia but wanted to be sure.

How comfortable do you feel with the building process?

Do your research and read reviews. And of course ask plenty of questions, we are here to help. Also I advise you watch build videos on Youtube as well.
