Hi!
Below is my build for my pc for gaming on my 1440p qnix korean monitor.
I just wanted some final corrections/advice please
Here is my build:
Intel Core i5-4570 3.2Ghz Box Socket 1150
Asrock H87M
Corsair Value Select DDR3 1600 PC-12800 8GB CL9
WD Caviar Blue 500GB SATA3
Cooler Master Elite 120 Advance
Corsair CX600 V2 600W Builder Series 80 Plus Bronze

Total: 766 euros
Thanks in advance!!

Personally, I'd get a bigger HDD. Games take up a lot of space, especially if you don't uninstall them.

Thanks for the advice!!
I will buy a 1tb hdd instead . Just out of curiosity, is it possible to intall the games that dont fit onto my 500gb usb 3.0 external hdd?
This will be the first pc i build and i am worried that the gpu may not be compatible with my monitor (monitor ONLY supports dual link dvi )... Also will the psu work with haswell and the gpu which needs one 6-pin and one 8-pin external power connectors?
Since the case is so small will heat be an issue?
Are there any possible incompatabilities with my build? Sorry for being paranoid but its quite a lot of money and i would hate to waste it

You could, but it would be slow. Anyway, heat might be an issue, but not for a few years, when things start pushing it. The 770 has DVI dual-link for the 3D vision compatibility, and I have the same PSU, so it should work.

It's never a good idea to store your games on an external HD, always use the internal.

The PSU is fine. Case may present heat issues but as long as you set your air flow up correctly it will be fine.

As far as the compatibilities go the only thing I might change would be the value RAM. You could get better Ram like G.Skill Ares or Corsair Vengance LP. What store are you buying from?

Okay. For an extra 13€ I can get Corsair Vengeance Pc3-12800 Ddr3 1600 8gb Cl9 so I guess it's worth it. I'm buying the parts from pc componentes (Spain).

Thanks for the great advice g-unit1111!
Unfortunately those cases are too large for me since I have to do quite a bit of traveling so I wanted something compact, but thanks anyways :)

I went and bought all the parts but the assistant said that my motherboard was not compatible since its micro atx instead of mini itx. So what i did is buy this motherboard instead: http://www.pccomponentes.com/gigabyte_ga_h87n_wifi.html
Now I am a bit worried i have messed up or something. Will it make any difference? will i still be able to use my pc for gaming and working on my 1440p screen??
Thanks
