  1. Looks all good, apart from I, personally, would go with an i5 processor. As you're not a gamer, the better motherboard might be something like the Asus H87 series, which would allow you to fit a graphics card if you decide to.
  2. This will power your system fine. That one you chose is awful and potentially unstable -

    Around 700-750 Euros
  7. In which case, your build is about right, apart from the H87 series of motherboard apparently only supports Crossfire(AMD) and not SLI(Nvidia) graphics card, which would affect your rig. I would recommend changing to a motherboard with the Z87 chipset. The other features of the Z87 is that they allow overclocking, but as you don't intend to overclock, it renders the point mute.
