So, I want to buy a new PC. I wanna take each part individually since I alreayd have a GT240 GPU and It's fine for me. I want to play games , experiment on overclocking and also want to stream some League of Legends in twitch.tv. I want something cost efficient. Not too expensive. I can afford 500 euros to 600.

You might want to consider a new GPU at some point, as that's a relatively weak card.

Ok, I'm not sure about your country pricing, I used the German version of pcpartpicker so hopefully the prices are close of what you can buy.

Here is basically a high end-ish gaming pc, without a GPU. You can put your GPU in there and it will run, however, this build has plenty of room to improvement. If in the future you decide to change the GPU, you can throw a high end one and it will run just fine. Also, this CPU can be overclocked without much hassle and I did throw a really good aftermarket cooler to help you with your temps.

I hope this can give you an idea of what can you get with your €600.

I think the i7 4770 might have a bit better benchmark/performance difference in some games but it probably isn't significant enough to make a difference. I think a 550~650 watt PSU will also be alright if you aren't going to SLI.
