I would go after bigger gpu and lesser cpu for gaming purposes. 120 gb ssd will become a problem quickly when programs start increasing. I would recommend wasting more on the performance parts and less on peripherals. 2133mhz ram cards will come in handy for gaming and if you ever decide to crossfire.

If you're spending that much on an 8350 you might aswell get an i5-unless you're in need of 8 cores, it's not worth the money.
Also OP, if going for intel, i'd invest more in the mobo, http://pcpartpicker.com/part/asus-motherboard-h87plus (if not gonna oc)
Apart from that, you should be fine.

Yeah, I would like to stick to Intel and Nvidia if possible. The only thing really that Im not sure of is the Motherboard that I've chosen. Im not going to OC, but I would like to have a good Motherboard, and Im not sure If the one that I've chosen is that good..

Ty for both of ur answers! Can you give me some more advices on motherboards under 100€?
