Hello!

APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: As soon as possible

BUDGET RANGE: aprox. 1500€

SYSTEM USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: Gaming (FFXIV), graphics, generic.

PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: I'm from Sweden so I've been checking different Swedish online shops: www.webhallen.com, www.komplett.se (webhallen seems to be the cheaper of the two). If you have any suggestions of any other online shops that would be great.

OVERCLOCKING: Never done it before, but sure

SLI OR CROSSFIRE: Sure, if that's the best option.

MONITOR RESOLUTION: 1920x1200-ish. Going to be using a 24'' screen.

1. Could'nt understand a word of Swedish in the afforementioned websites. In any case, the prices mentioned are in Kroners, I think.

2. The hyper 212 plus is a more cost effective solution. Yes, the Noctua gets great reviews, but is pretty costly. It's your call.

3. Gtx 460 / 470 / 480 / 5870 - Whatever your budget allows you.

But drop the Gainward. Go with Asus, Gigabyte, MSI, EVGA, Sapphire (ATI), XFX.

EDIT : You don't really need the 750 w PSU if you do'nt plan to SLI in the future. The 650 TX should suit you just fine.
