Hi everyone :) 

I am looking for the best components for a gaming / multimedia PC. I don't want to spend more than 630 (Euro). The components are like 10-20% cheaper in euro's in my country instead of dollars ;)  (I live in holland)

My build:
FX-8350
MSI 970A-G46
Cooler Master Scout 2 Advanced (Needs to be a LAN case that doesn't looks like a fridge ;) 
Seagate 2TB SATA HDD (No SSD plz, to expensive)
Kingston 8GB DDR3 1600MHz Kit
MSI GeForce GTX 660 2GB Twin Frozr III OC
Price --> 616 Euro / $736 Dollar

I already have a 550W PSU from MSI, that one is like new, only used it 2 months.
And gaming is not the most important thing, because multitasking is also very important (in my opinion). If i can play games on medium 1920X1200 on 50+ fps, then i am happy enough :) 

Also overclocking isn't very important!

Which parts can i change to make the performance even better in my budged?

Tnx already :) 

Oh and, sry for bad english sometimes :/

Instead of the MSI board I'd go for a sabertooth 990fx r2 gen 3 or even gen2 board

Is it really important, because that is 60 euro above my Max budget.

You have one of the best processors out there, you're only compromising on the mobo allthough you can always go for a 990fx chipset board if not the sabertooth. Check what 990fx mobo you can get without breaking the bank down your side and we'll help you choose the best one from the lot. Asus premium boards are a bit expensive I agree, try asrock or msi but the 990fx 's.

Ok, my budget can be a little bit higher, but i still don't have enough money for a Sabertooth. When i buy the Gigabyte GA-990FXA-UD3, then i have exactly enough money, is that one good?

I can only find the Rev 1 version in my country, does it really makes sense, or do i need to buy another one?

Rev 1 seems to have had a lot of problems so I would advise against it.

Really dont get that MSI mono. Its known for blowing up with 8cores. I think they even dropped the support for the 8 core CPUs. If you can't afford that 990fx boards, a gigabyte ga970-ud3 is also a nice board

Is the 'Asus M5A99FX Pro' a good mobo, or is there not much difference between that one and the 'Asus M5A99X Evo'

They're both the same unless you want to CF or SLI later on..... that's the major difference , EVO has a 1 PCIe at 16x and Dual at 8x where are the PRO has dual at 16x plus a extra SATA 6gbps port.... so it's really what you plan to do later. They are both great boards and of course they are Asus... so you don't need to look further if you're planning on buying either one of the 2.... again rev 2's are better.

Alright, then the Evo is enough for me, and its exactly inside my budget (€ 659,40 :D )

Tnx for help :)

Hello everyone
I just bought my pc and have it for a week now, i only switched the 8350 to an 8320 (it was 55 dollars cheaper O,o), and bought a R9 270X instead of a GTX660 because the performance was much better ;) 
I have to say, this PC is a beast, it boots up in 30 seconds, and after it booted up you're pc can't almost crash, i tried to render 1 video, copy 3 files, watched a youtube video, and the pc was still able to run smooth :D 
Also overclocking the GPU is fun, i will overclock the 8320 when i got a liquid CPU cooler, because it is now on 3.7 GHZ, and makes a lot of noise while i am gaming / rendering a video :/ 

But thanks everyone for this great build :D
