hello, im going to build a new pc for the first time.
i have a i5 2500k and a HD 6670 (can be replaced later)
is it possible to buy the rest of the components for about 250 euros (about 330$ i think) give or take?
if yes please give some options abpout it, will it be good for gaming?

PS. forgot to say that i dont need a disk drive and hard disk

Yeah, should be easy

Pick up 8 gigs of ram for about 35 bucks.

Grab a case that includes 3 fans for around 50 bucks.

Get a nice 600watt psu, about 60-80 bucks

Then spend 100 - 120 on a mobo, asrock makes nice ones for that price.

It is very possible.

Do you need a case, monitor, keyboard?

I am using a Asrock motherboard for my build too, (AMD though ;)  )

Here is a low priced motherboard for a i5: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

i already have a keyboard + mouse, i have 2 monitors but a case would be needed.
could you also recommend specific products?

also, should i spend about 20$ more on this mobo (ASRock P67 Extreme4 Gen3) instead of the one with the Z68 chipset?

The Asrock motherboard he suggested is good.

Check out the rosewill challenger case.

i like the look of both cases but they dont seem to be available here (i'm dutch)

edit: oh never mind, i found the antec nine hundred but i think its a bit expensive for my small budget.

Looks fine just make sure when you go buy a new graphics card that you will have enough room. That looks like it has plenty of room though.

ok how about exactly the same psu only 500W.
would that be enough if i decide to run for example 2 hd 6670's in crossfire?

On there website: http://www.amd.com/us/products/desktop/graphics/amd-rad...
under system requirements it says if you want to Crossfire you should have a 500W power supply, 400W for no crossfire. So if you want to be on the safe side i would get the 600W :D 

Incase if you want to upgrade your 6670's in the future
