Hello my name is Jimmy, I am from Greece and I would like to build my own PC. Ordering something from international shops gets a little overpriced in my country so I would like you to help me build my pc on this shop . I did some research the last week and I have some thoughts, but I would like some help because I am not that experienced.
CPU : INTEL CORE I5-4670K 3.40GHZ LGA1150 - BOX- 213.67 €
CPU cooler: COOLERMASTER RR-T4-18PK-R1 HYPER T4 COOLER 28.90 €
Motherboard : ASUS B85M-G RETAIL 70.73 €
Memory : KINGSTON 8GB (2X4GB) DDR3 1600MHZ DUAL CHANNEL KIT 78.47 €
Storage : ADATA PREMIER PRO SP900 64GB 2.5'' SSD SATA3 69.00 €
Storage : WESTERN DIGITAL WD10EZRX CAVIAR GREEN 1TB SATA3 60 €
video card:Well, I am between 3 options.
ZOTAC GEFORCE GTX670 4GB GDDR5 PCI-E RETAIL 419.00(starting price) - new price: 329.00 €
GIGABYTE GTX760 GV-N760OC-4GD 4GB DDR5 PCI-E RETAIL 329.00 €
GIGABYTE GTX760 GV-N760OC-2GD 2GB DDR5 PCI-E RETAIL 250.42 €
Should I go for 2 or 4 gb, also why the ZOTAC one is so expensive ?
CASE: What case should I go for? Here's the link
DVD-R : ASUS DRW-24B5ST DVD-RW BLACK RETAIL 20 €
Screen:Which one of these two AOC E2250SWNΚ WLED 21.5'' 97.50 €
LG 22EN33S-B 21.5'' LED MONITOR FULL HD BLACK 123.00--->lowered price 103.50 €
Power Supply : What power supply should i get ?
UPS : Do i need to get UPS?
The price without power suppy and case is about 900 €...What could I change so I can have pretty much the same performance but a little lower price? Also, How do you think are the prices in my country, does it worth it to buy from here or should I go from international shops even with overpriced shipping? Thank you very much.
PS. I am hardcore gamer and i would like something that will last atleast 4 years and to play the best games on the best graphics with no problem for the next 2-3 years.

It's a good start but you do not need a UPS. You also cannot pair a B85 motherboard with a 4670K CPU as you cannot overclock with that setup, and that defeats the purpose of owning a 4670K. Also a 64GB SSD will barely hold an operating system these days.

Well I'd post links but my Google Chrome translating tool is being stupid at the moment. I would say something like a Gigabyte GA-Z87X-UD3H or an Asrock Z87 Extreme 4.

Don't get that SSD though - it's based on the old, slow, crappy and problematic Sandforce 2.0 controller. Get the Samsung 840 Evo instead - not much more, but it's a far better drive.

If electrical is a problem in your area a UPS might be good....I'd look to Asus for the mobo, might look at the Z87-A...the Samsung EVO is a good choice for a SSd in 120GB, on the GPU go with the 760 2GB, the GigaByte is good might also look to the Asus 760 CU...and on the DRAM find a 1600 set that runs in 1.5 instead of that 1.65 volt set, don't want to touch 1600 sticks (or 1866 for that matter, that need 1.65)

On HDs between the Blue and green - go blue (7200 RPM is faster then the Greens 5400), For most everybody a 2GB GPU is sufficient unless running say 3 hi def monitors or more, I mysalf like the HAF cases and lean towards SeaSonic for PSUs (and of course there are plenty of other good ones (Corsair, XFX, etc)

Looks good, think you'll be pleased - let me know how it turns out, also in particular what you think of the CM TX3, I haven't had one of those on a Haswell
