Solved

Need advices for my first build 1500€ budget.

Hi, so this is my first time writing a post in this forum and also my first time building a PC and as so i need the help of you veterans!

What i'm looking for is a general use PC that have to be stable(so i won't overclock, run dual gpu or undervolt)and more importantly be quite, i plan to game on it, i don't need to run them maxed out or with super high framerate(medium settings and more than 30fps will be enough) but i'll use a high res display(LG 34UM95 if that helps). After some researches i came up with a build(i'll list it below) but i'm not really sure if all the components are compatible, if they are good/worth, if there's any bottleneck or if there's simply a better option for my needs, and this is why i desperatly need your help guys.

BUILD
Price: 1200€
MOBO: Asus H87 PRO (is it good?)
CPU: Intel i5 4690
GPU: Asus GTX 780 DirectCU II OC 3GB (should i take the ti vers. for 200€ more? more VRAM?)
RAM: Corsair Vengeance 2x8 16GB 1600Mhz Low Profile
PSU: Seasonic G-550 (is it enough?)
SSD: Samsung EVO 840 256GB
HDD: Western Digital Caviar Green 3TB
CPU COOLER: BeQuite Dark rock 3 (is it any good? or should i go with something else)
CASE: NZXT H440 white

Thanks in advance and i'm sorry if this is not the right place to post these questions.

    Some points:
    1. Get a h97 motherboard or you will have to deal with complicated BIOS updates to make it work with your cpu
    2.Get a western digital blue one instead?
    3. You will be able to run games maxed out with that set up

    Oops wanted to reply and picked you as the solution instead :/

    Anyway, what's the difference between the blue and the green? I dont really need high speed storage.

    I hear the blue is more reliable, or get seagate barracude? that's also a nice option
