Hi, i have been looking for parts for a good build. I'm not quite sure if they are good together. I would like to know if there are some better options. I'm going to use the computer mostly for gaming. I don't have a bugdet, I'm going to save up till i can buy it.
I live in Sweden so I'm buying from this site: "www.Inet.se". Here is the link with the shoppingcart: http://www.inet.se/kundvagn/visa/1754135/2012-05-02
I don't know if i need the cpu cooler. But I'm thinking of overclocking.

Gpu: MSI GeForce GTX 680 2048MB OC
Cpu: Intel Core i7 3770K 3,5Ghz (Ivy Bridge)
Mobo: MSI Z77A-G43 ATX
Ram: Corsair 16GB (4x4096MB) CL9 1600Mhz VENGEANCE
Psu: Corsair TX 750W M 80+ Bronze Modular

It's a nice build. Will it take long to save the money ? If so there will be a new high-end set of parts. If you are price sensitive you can get 90+% of the gaming at less than 1/2 the price of these parts.

GTX680. --> can't go wrong with this, but a $150 HD6850 can game like crazy.
I7 3770K --> can't go wrong, but an I5-2500K can game about as well
16GB ram --> 4GB is enough, 8 is overkill
2TB disk --> add a second disk and go raid 0 for speed.
