Approximate Purchase Date: the closer the better

Budget Range: 1000€-1100€

System Usage from Most to Least Important: developing(php, java), games, photoshop, web surfing

Parts Not Required: keyboard, mouse, monitor, speakers, OS

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: http://www.mylemon.at/

Country: Slovenia

Parts Preferences: I would like to use Intel CPU, nVidia eVGA or asus graphic card, asus motherboard(or same quality brand)

Overclocking: Maybe, does it boost so much performance? Is it safe and still under warranty?

SLI or Crossfire: No

Monitor Resolution: 1680x1050 at the moment but planning to buy larger lcd soon

Additional Comments: I was looking for components already but I'm not sure about it.

For cpu: i5 3570k or i7 3770 also any other recommendations are welcome. I can't decide to go with k or without k. I dont have a passion for overcloacking cpu, but if it's safe and also still under warranty I would do that if it increase performance and I could feel it. I just want something that will run smoothly.

GPU: There are a lot of different graphic cards. I really dont know what to pick. I was looking GTX 670 and 770 but there are some super cloacked versions and signature, etc.. and I'm totally confused.

Motherboard: I would like to stick with Asus or something same quality when it comes to motherboard.

Memory: There are so many rams I can't decide which one to pick. But would like to stick with corsair or g skill.

Thanks in advance

I can't provide the cart here for some reason.

You can upgrade that i5 to an i7-4770K within the budget, only do it if you do heavy rendering (then I also recommend 16GB ram)

Make sure you look at each part carefully. The GPU is 4GB version because it was only 15 euros more.

Thanks for a build. I would like to ask about cpu.

I think I don't need an i7 4770k cause it will be overkill. I read about 3570k and 4670k and some state that 3570k is a better choice because of ivy bridge over haswell and also read about some heating problems with 4670k. How about that? Should I go with latest 4670k or with 3570k? Could 4670k also be overclocked as 3570k?

Also how about graphic card. Isn't 4gb overkill? Should it be better to get gtx 770 2GB or any other 2GB card? It's around 350€-400€ but after all it's still within a budget? Is performance better so it's worth 130€ more?

For motherboard, I don't like msi too much. Is it possible to get asus or gigabyte motherboard for that price or maybe few € more?

Other things I like. Thanks again.

I provided you with an i5-4670K not an i7-4770K though. You want to game rather than render heavily so I recommend i5-4670K.

Again, I selected the 4GB graphics card because the price difference on that site is so slight that it would be a waste not to get it.

If you will be gaming heavily and care a lot about the performance, sure go with the GTX 770.

If you don't want that motherboard then this is a good choice as well; Gigabyte Z87X-UD3H

And furthermore sure the Ivy Bridges overclock better than the Haswells but if you're planning on overclocking enough that it matters you'll need a watercooling set anyway. The SANDY Bridges are known for best overclocking..

1. Regardless of the opinion of Ivy Bridge v. Haswell, the blogs will keep saying that about every generation that one doesn't overclock as well as the other. It's a sad but true fact. And most of those people are wrong. With the right cooler and if you know what you're doing they'll overclock fine.

2. No, most cards in that price range are usually 3GB, 4GB being a few exceptions.

3. Well if you post the store that you are buying from I can suggest a non-MSI motherboard and maybe a couple of other suggestions for parts.

JavaSun, thanks for mobo suggestion but I like that asus g-unit1111 suggested just perfect. About graphic card I read a bit on forum and other sources and they say it's useless to buy 4gb 760. Something like bus width is not large enough to take advantage of 4gb because it's only 256bit. In some cases it could be at least slower than 2gb version. Also this version is not possible to get with acx cooling and there is only 1 fan. I decided and I hope it's good decision to get 2gb version super cloacked with acx.

Here is my build, some parts missing:

Motherboard: ASUS Z87-PRO
CPU: INTEL Core i5-4670K
Graphic Card: GF GTX 760 SC 2GB DDR5 ACX
HDD: WD Desktop Mainstream HDD 1TB Retail
SSD: SSD 120GB Samsung
Memory: G-skill D3 8GB 1600-888 Ares

I need now PSU, CPU cooler and case.
I would love to use what JavaSun suggested but I'm not sure if everything is still compatible with new mobo and additional SSD or should I change case and PSU. Also for cooler I checked and there is no 1150 in socket for this fan as 4670k is and I'm not sure if that's compatible.

I would appreciate any comment, suggestion on this build.

Thanks in advance

The SSD is a good choice but I would get the 840 Pro - shouldn't be that much more.
