Hey folks, building for the first time, and while I've done some reading and think this should work, I want to make sure I'm (a) getting good value for money and (b) not choosing any parts that are incompatible or are going to bottleneck one another. Advice/comments welcome and gratefully accepted!
The box will be running Linux, perhaps even being turned into a hackintosh down the road.

BUDGET RANGE: 800-900 €
SYSTEM USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: Gaming, movies/multimedia
PARTS NOT REQUIRED: Keyboard, mouse, monitor, speakers, OS, wireless networking
PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: computeruniverse.net and amazon.de (living in Germany so prefer sites based there to keep shipping costs down)
COUNTRY OF ORIGIN: Germany
PARTS PREFERENCES: nvidia graphics, as these are meant to be significantly better-compatible with Linux.
OVERCLOCKING: Maybe, totally open to it
SLI OR CROSSFIRE: N/A

ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: I'd like to err on the side of using less power where possible.
