Looks good to me.

That RAM will default to 1600mhz so you will have to overclock it manually. You could save some money by getting 1600mhz RAM. There will be no noticeable difference in performance at all.

Is that because the higher speed of RAM is used only in big HD videos?

Unfortunately , EVGA products arent in sale in Greece . Also dont you think the MSI gtx 770 and the MSI mobo are a good combo?
