The high end gaming PC is going to be something that can run everything at 1080P at high to ultra settings. This machine will burn through any game on the market, and will have plenty of room for expansion as well.
CPU – Intel Core i5-3570K
Motherboard – ASUS P8Z77-V Pro
Memory - 8GB Corsair Vengeance 1600MHz DDR3 Low Profile 1.5v Memory
Video Card – Sapphire Radeon HD 7970 Vapor-X
Boot Drive – Crucial m4 128GB SSD
Optical Drive - OEM DVD Drive or OEM Blu Ray Drive (Any Manufacturer)
PSU – XFX ProSeries 850W
Case – Corsair Carbide Series 500R
CPU Cooler – Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo
Operating System – Windows 7 64 bit

Please don't pick the TX650 V2. It has some rather bad reviews, and the quality of the unit is questionable. A TX750 V2 is much better, and has good reviews.

One more thing, the motherboard is way too expensive. You might aswell pick a Sabretooth or a Rampage if you want to pick a MB of that price class.

if you are buying the Sabertooth you are buying it for the looks and the warranty (e.g. TUF components). The V-Pro is a good choice check the reviews http://www.overclock3d.net/reviews/cpu_mainboard/asus_p... <--- review w/benchmarks http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/article/ASUS-P8Z77-V-PRO... <--- review w/benchmarks http://www.techreaction.net/2012/06/28/review-asus-p8z7... <--- review w/benchmarks

Optional Components

Since some people are interested in monitors, speakers, mice and keyboards, so i'm also including some recommendations for these items as well. I won’t be explaining the choices as peripherals are quite very much dependent on the person using the PC (For example, someone serious about audio may end up with $400 Audioengine 5+ speakers), but here are some suggestions that are a good fit for this build.
Monitor ASUS VS247H-P 24″ Full HD Monitor or Dell UltraSharp U2412M
Speakers Logitech Z313 Speakers
Mouse Razer Deathadder
Keyboard CM Storm QuickFire Pro

If you have the money to also purchase a new monitor, I'd buy a 27 inch, 2560 x 1440 resolution. Especially since you will have the PC to push good to great framerates at that resolution. IF not, then shoot for a 24 inch, 1080p monitor, and you'll be up to what is probably considered standard for gaming atm.

I've heard that PS2 drops frames badly in large battles. So that wouldn't be an issue with your PC, just how the game works.

Not to mention since the OP is in the EU, posting links to Microcenter and Newegg are useless. :lol:

Not that I'm aware of. They seem to be based more in the northern parts of the EU.

Yes but buying internationally subjects the OP to massive customs fees, import taxes, and high shipping costs. It's always better to buy locally. This would be a better shop for Belgium: http://www.mijnitshop.be/shop/componenten

The PC is already bought and built. He posted a question about his build, so the current topic of discussion is a bit misleading in regards to the original forum headline.
