So I before I joined these forums I was pretty sure of what to get, now after reading around here I feel like a moron. I have no idea what to get that fits in my budget. Any ideas are welcome!!

Hi. Where are you from? Do you need a monitor? Do you need Operating System? Can you tell more about what you need?

It's not the best out there but you will enjoy overclocking it. :)

Hey, I live in Estonia, so Europe. I excluded the monitor and operating systems from the budget so i'm good in that area. I was kinda hoping for an intel based build although the one already suggested here by James seems awesome at first glance, but i'm not sure I can get all that stuff here :(

It seems really nice but as I started checking, there's no way of getting some of that stuff... earlier i came up with this intel based build, not sure if it'll work.

Motherboard: Asrock Z87 Killer 115€
CPU: Intel i5-4670K 207 €
RAM: Corsair Vengeance 2x8 gb @ 1866mhz 127 €
PSU: Corsair vs 650w 52 €
SSD: Corsair Force LS 60GB 63 €
HDD: Toshiba (random 2TB) 73 €
CASE: Corsair Carbide 400R 88 €
COOLING: Corsair H100l 94 €
VGA: Gigabyte GTX 770 2GB Windforxe 3x 356 €
ODD: Samsung SH-224DB/BEBE SATA 13 €
And a built in wireless card for 8 € since i hate the cable management. Totaling in
All this stuff would reach a total sum of 1196 € which leaves me with 4 € for beer.
