Hi,
I am building a new computer, I have picked out all the parts. Does anyone have any opinions or improvements on it, while keeping around the same over all price. Especially this

vs

These are all the parts, it comes out to €544 excluding windows. I was also wondering if it is required to place 2 sticks of ram at minimum or can I use only 1 4gb stick?

I would not recommend that motherboard as I had the same one and it died on me after three days but it doesn't seem like there are too many options available from that site. If you go AMD you should at least try to get a 970 if it's available.

Otherwise everything looks good - maybe put a bit more into the GPU and get a 6850 but that's all I would recommend.
