Hello, i am new to this gaming world, and i would really like if someone could help me with what i need for building a computer and which parts is best for my gaming experince. I need it for playing games like Crysis 3, Far Cry, Metro: light, Battle Field 3, Bioshock infinite, and GTA IV.

I live in Denmark but is going to visit my cousin in Netherland and want to build a computer there because it is at least 50 % cheaper. My budget is around 1.000 $

So far i know that i need: (If there is anything missing, can you please write it in a reply)
Case
Hard drive
DVD/DVD +/- RW/Blu-ray Drive
RAM
CPU
GPU
Monitor - Already have one
Keybord and mouse - Already have one
Motherboard
Cooling fan (really don't know what kind of cooling fan is needed if it is for CPU, GPU or what?)
Windows 7 - Already have a license.
Gaming headset - Already have a pair


So far i have found these things i want for my gaming computer, i would like you to tell me what you think about them and if they are bad give me an alternative


CPU: Intel i5-3570k (http://ark.intel.com/products/65520)

GPU: Point of view GTX 670 (http://www.pointofview-online.com/showroom.php?shop_mod...) <-- can someone tell me why it is much cheaper than other gtx 670 graphic cards?

Case: CoolerMaster K380 (no fans) (http://www.coolermaster.com/product/...ower/k380.html)

Ram: Kingston 8 gb ddr3 1600 [Can someone tell me what is best 1x8 gb or 2x4 gb?]

Harddrive: Western digital 1 TB

DVD: Just a normal thing that can read and burn DVDs

Then there is the power supplier and motherboard, which i am quite unsure what to pick, and found these (can someone help me with which one to pick?)

Power supplier

1: corsair Corsair Gs700 and GS600 (http://www.corsair.com/gs-series-gs7...er-supply.html)

2: Corsair CMPSU-650TXV2 ( Dutch link https://maxict.nl/product/3578661/co...ply-eu-version)

3: Corsair Enthusiast Series TX650 ( I think that the one i found was v1 and not v2 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817139020)

4:Corsair Builder Series CX 80+ Bronze 600 Watt ATX (http://www.dabs.com/products/corsair...pply-8CDC.html)

Motherboard

1. MSI MB H87-G41 (http://www.msi.com/product/mb/H87-G41-PC-Mate.html)

2. MSI MB H87-G43 (http://www.msi.com/product/mb/H87-G43.html)

3.MSI MB G41-B85 PC Mate (http://www.msi.com/product/mb/B85-G41-PC-Mate.html)

I am not 100 % sure that all parts fit, so if someone knows that they do or do not, i would appriciate that you told me

Thanks for your time and feedback

Here is a gaming setup that I just suggested to somebody else and I think it will help you too :D 

CPU: i5 3570k -link: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1681... = $235
MOTHERBOARD: ASUS P8H77-V LE -link http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1681... = $120
RAM: G.SKILL Ripjaws Z Series 8GB (4 x 2GB) -link http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1682... = $95
CPU COOLER: COOLER MASTER Hyper N 520 -link http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1683... = $35
POWER SUPPLY: Thermaltake TR2 -link http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1681... = $80
VIDEO CARD: EVGA SuperClocked -link http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1681... = $230
CASE: Rosewill CHALLENGER -link http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1681... = $55
HARD DRIVE: Western Digital -link http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1682... = $65
OPERATING SYSTEM: Windows 7 -link http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1683... = $100
OPTICAL DRIVE: ASUS 24X DVD Burner -link http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1682... = $20

Total price = $ 1035


Hope this helps

Also, the motherboards you suggested wont fit because it socket 1150 and the i5 3570k is 1155. The power supplies are fine. The memory : I think 4x4gb is better but 4x2 at 1866mhz is still good. You don't want 1x8 because that means everything is running on that memory module, 4 is better so that if one fails than ur computer will still work. But for memory in general, go for g.skill or corsair, they are at the top. The case is fine and the graphics card... idk. The one i suggested will serve you good too :D 

Again, I hope this helps

I want to get the i5 3570k too. Im working on my own setup too :D

or instead of the i5 4670, you could go for the 4670k which is unlocked so that you can overclock it. its only about 20 dollars more i think. then you can overclock it. And later on if you want more performance, you can get another pair of memory modules and maybe an ssd, combined these will boost ur fps around 5-10 im guessing

have fun :D

But if you are planning on putting that setup in a full tower case it would look pathetic because that motherboard is micro-atx. You should get normal atx because its bigger and is wouldnt be so clustered, plus it might overheat because everything is so close together. And your cooler will have to be smaller which would also mean ur cpu would overheat easier.
