I'm thinking about building my own computer. I would like to fit in the following CPU, GPU and RAM memory:
intel core i7 4770K 3.5 Ghz
AMD Radeon 7850
8Gb of Ram
I already have a monitor

My question is: is someone able to send me the names of all the other components i need to get these to work? i mean like a Motherboard, a HDD, a Case and a PSU. So everything i need further to get these things working with eachother. I would really appreciate it.

Building date: before end of this year, November or December

Without the named components: Budget: 300 - 750 Euro's

Usage: Gaming, Movies, Surfing internet, Schoolwork

Prefered places to buy: None

Location: Friesland, The Netherlands

Preferences for components: Capable of working with the named CPU, GPU and RAM Memory, brand type doesn't matter

resolution: between 1280x1024 and 1600x1200

Aditional comments: its not bad if it makes noise but i would like it to be somewhere between Quiet and noisy
The ideal price without the named parts would be between 300 and 550 Euro's

Links to websites would be very much appreciated

You might want to add in an SSD so you can boot up windows faster and/or your vital programs, but that's your choice. I don't know how/where you'll be able to get these components for your location, but I'm sure there will be somewhere.

Enjoy the build and don't forget to rate best answer!

Just two more questions: I came up with a AMD Radeon 7850 HD GPU, and you gave me a link to a MSI Radeon 7850 HD GPU. Is there really a difference between them? and if so, which one is better do you think?
And is the one i came up still compatible with the rest of the components?

Last question: is this case really necesarry because if i could save some money on this that would be really helpfull. There are lots of cases that are less expensive so thats why i ask.

Both will be compatible since they use PCI express slots..
The only difference will be the various clock speeds and I don't know the speeds of the AMD one, but since they're both 7850s I'd assume they're similar.

The case I chose is good for its price, it's roomy and made of durable material.

Here's a video on it : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WCc2IC7Icug

If you do want to change it, I'd suggest not going under £35 because the ones lower then that are generally made of weak materials and can't sustain much pressure.

If this is going to be primarily a gaming computer, i'd suggest going with the i5 4670k over the 4770k since the i7 won't make a difference here. Then, take the 100+ you save with the 4670k and invest it into a higher end GPU, like a GTX 760/770 or an AMD Radeon 7950/7970. You get a lot more power for not much more money.

Also, in reference to the question about MSI vs AMD cards, the main GPU processor itself is an AMD design, other companies use their chip and make their own hardware. They're just two different producers.

Lastly, I much prefer this case over the one the other helper mentioned:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

I've used this case many times for different clients of mine. It's super durable, has mesh guards to protect against dust, is super easy to hide wires with, super easy to install HDDs with as well. Comes pre-mounted with 3 fans as well. Cannot go wrong with this wonderful case.
