Hello everyone,
i'm planning to build a pc for mostly gaming and the occasional video editing/recording and i could really use some help

Approximate Purchase Date: 2-3 weeks

Budget Range: 1300-1400€

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming(wow,skyrim,bf3,swtor,mw3), Game Recording, Light video editing, Live streaming games(wow and swtor), watching/downloading anime

Parts Not Required: Already have Razer Lycosa keyboard, Logitech MX 518 mouse,24 inch monitor, speakers, OS

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: http://www.alternate.be/html/index.html

Country: Belgium

Parts Preferences: case - Aerocool XPredator Evil Black Edition OR NZXT Phantom
(they both look amazing,but if i can get some better hardware by saving a bit on the case then i'l gladly change)

Overclocking: Maybe (new to overclocking)

SLI or Crossfire: Yes

Monitor Resolution: 1920x1080

Additional Comments: planning on getting a second monitor in the near future for a dual monitor setup
i'm going to reuse my old hdd aswel so a new hdd with 500gb-750gb should be fine for a couple of months

i want to be able to play games like wow,skyrim,bf3,mw3,swtor,etc.. on ultra settings with good fps
and i'd also like to be able to record/stream games like wow,bf3,swtor withouth having to lower to much of the settings to keep a good fps while recording/streaming

looks good though i have a couple of questions
Will i be able to play games like bf3,skyrim,mw3,wow,swtor on ultra settings?
Can i run a dual monitor setup on this if i get a second monitor?
Should i get a cheaper case so i can spend a bit more on other hardware ?
And will i be able to get a second XFX HD7970 BLACK in a couple of months and go for crossfire with that graphics card?

edit: just noticed u didnt link a cooler

You shouldn't upgrade any of the following parts if you will just gaming: CPU, Memory, VGA, mobo..
MAYBE, I say, just MAYBE you could get a "better" PSU, like the Corsair 850HX or 850AX that have modular cables and both have a better 80Plus certify (silver and gold)

yes it will be mostly for gaming and recording gameplay with fraps and light video editing with vegas pro
and the build that was suggested seems to have no cpu cooler so will i be fine withouth it or did he forget?
(or am i just overlooking it :??:  )

there's also no SSD linked but i dont really know if that matters for gaming
