I'm planning to get this done in February. It's my first build and I want to get the best value for money. I'll be playing games like BF3 and Skyrim and want to be prepared for future games.

Lets say the next things : for that monitor resolution you don't need 580gtx , its a waist of money and its overkill. 6950 or 560Ti is more than enough on that resolution.Its better to buy an 570 gtx and a fullHD monitor.

But how will a 570 run with future games?

That i could do with 570gtx cheaper than that to put an 580gtx i couldn't do , because the cheapast 580 is 474 euros.

TOTAL : € 998,49*
If you will overclock that 2500k you will need an aftermarket cooler , and i forgot the DVD-RW.
