Hi, i'm looking to buy a new pc very soon and since i am not very knowledgeable about it i thought it would be best to ask first.

These parts i picked myself and i need you to look at these and see if they are compatible and if they are also quality products and if they are not then could you recommend some (and also list reasons why you think that is best).

This computer will be for gaming and surfing the net.

Intel® Core™ i5-4440 Processor (6M Cache, up to 3.30 GHz) Box 158 Euro ( cheapest i5 there )

MSI Radeon™ R9 270x Hawk / 2GB GDDR5 / OC / (R9 270X HAWK) 198 Euro right now ( i want a radeon card but not sure what to choose, the other one i looked at is MSI Radeon R9 270x Gaming 185 Euro, Hawk is a bit cheaper for now otherwise it's 215 Euros so there is a 30 euro difference so i would like to know if hawk is worth it).

WD 3.5 SATA3 BLUE 1TB 7200RPM 64MB WD10EZEX 55 Euro ( is this a good hard drive? i don't want it breaking 3 months later like what happened to my green 1tb WD).

SAMSUNG SH-224DB/BEBE DVD-RW SATA 24X INT BULK BLACK 13 Euro (cheapest there)

Corsair Vengeance LP™ Series — 8GB (2 x 4) DDR3 1600Hz CL9 Memory Kit (CML8GX3M2A1600C9) 75 Euro (don't know what to say about this, Corsair is a good company and this ram should be good right?)

Zalman Z9 PLUS Mid Tower 50 Euro ( this should come with 4 fans, other case i liked is In Win GT 1 for about the same price).

Gigabyte P85-D3 / Intel® B85 / Socket 1150 / ATX (GA-P85-D3) 71 Euro

Seasonic M12II Series M12II-620 Bronze - 620 Watt 80 PLUS® Bronze Certified (SS-620GM) 73 Euros
( website i'm buying this from shows this, it should work with my system right?)
atx connector:1x 20/24pin
eps connector: 1x 8pin 1x 4pin
pci-e connector:1x 6pin 1x 8pin
peripheral connector:6x 4pin
sata connector:9x

I have been thinking if i should get Amd FX 6300 instead as it 55 euros cheaper but i5 is more powerful and doesn't use as much electricity, though electricity price here is about 5,5 cents so my bill shouldn't increase by a lot i assume. What i would like to know is how much of a difference there is between these cpu's ?

Pc will be put together at the store so i dont have to worry about that.

I would like your opinion on these components and if they will last about 4-5 years and i can play new games AT LEAST with minimum graphics without lagging, my HD4870 performed decently enough these 4 years though it could only play assassins creed 3 at 15-20 fps.

I would like your opinions fast as i am going to buy it either today or next week so i could have it before new year.
Sorry about my poor english and thanks for your help.

What about FX 8320 for 138 euros? though it looks like it comes without a cooler so i will have to buy that but if i get it for 17 euros it will be the same price as i5 4440.

How would i5 4440 compare to 8320? and how much would i pay more in electricity if i go with amd.
Thanks.
