The 760 4gb is a waste of money. The 2gb 770 is ALOT faster for 30$ more.

You will need a better PSU also. Get a 600w minimum seasonic/xfx or other reputable brand.

I hope you plan to overclock, otherwise the CPU and cooler are a waste of money.

Yeah i probably will overclock, and ty for the advice. I'd like to buy the GTX 780 TI but the graphic cards are so expensive in europe all the places i've seen. they're about 70% more expensive than the ones in America.
