Building a gaming rig 1800€ budget

Hello everyone after working for a few months and saving money its time to build up my first gaming computer that satisfies my needs as weekend warrior gaming, so I would like some advise.
My budget is 1800€ just to build the case(and his components). I've been searching for some components and I would like too have some advise because I'm not a real expert on build computers and I don't even know the things that i have in mind can be done so I've I say some madness pardon me lol.

Case
- ANTEC DF85-EU 13X3.5 3C5.25 2XSSD 5X120 2X140 4XUSB BLACK

CPU
- I7 3820 LGA2011 3.6GHZ3.8GHZ 4C8T 10MB

CPU Cooling
- ANTEC KUHLER H2O 920

Motherboard:
- GIGABYTE X79-UD3 X79 LGA2011 DDRIII

Hard Drive:
- 3.5P WD BLACK 1TB 7200RPM 64MB SATA3 6GBPS

SSD:
- 2.5P ADATA SP900 256GB SATA3 550/530MB/S

Power Supply:
- MOD CORSAIR RM850W PFC ACT 14CM 80PLUS GOLD

RAM:
- 22x8192MB DDR3 1600 1X240 DIMM CL9 GSKILL RIPJAWSX

Graphic card:
- GIGABYTE NVIDIA GTX760 OC 4GB DDR5 PCIE3

this is what I have on my mind, but I want some opinions for like is it viable to get a LGA 2011 motherboard and CPU? I want a computer to last more than 5 years without doing major upgrades to it, and if is even possible to build this lol so share your thoughts and your wisdom with me to see if I can make up my mind :P

Greetz!

  1. What country do you live in?
  2. Unless you have lots of money to spare, an i5 4670K (socket 1150) will game pretty darn well. The 2011 CPUs and motherboards carry a pretty hefty price-tag, you would be better off using the money saved by going the i5 route and putting it into better GPU(s). However, if you are determined to go the 2011 route, there is nothing wrong with it, I might if I could afford it (lol).

    If this is for gaming, lga 2011 is not needed, think more professional use for that. This build should last you a very long time without a single upgrade.

    Portugal. is that a factor to choose components? :??:
  5. oh shit, thought that was euros you were asking for. It matters because I have no idea what costs you can get parts for or an easy way to find them.

    that is my main problem, where I live its really hard to find parts, by the factor that I live in a remote island on the middle of Atlantic ocean :/ so this was just some parts that i've found on the local stores. to get some parts I have to pay like 50€ just for shipping and that is just crazy but thanks for the the advise sometimes when need other people opinion to make your mind :)

    Gave you better RAM, also swapped out the case to a full tower. You could use the extra room for a SLI set up. Also has a massive side intake to keep those cards cool.
