Shop -

Asus Intel Performance Bundle (Includes P8Z68-V LX Motherboard, Intel Core i5-2500K & 8GB DDR3) 360 Euro

ASUS HD7850-DC2-2GD5 - Graphics card - Radeon HD - 250 Euro

Seagate 1TB Barracuda SpinPoint SATA 3Gb/s 7200RPM 16MB 3.5" - 87 Euro

This adds up to 700 euro leaving me with 100 for psu and case. Should I invest in a cooling fan as well?

What kind of a PSU do I need? How many Watts?

Does the kind of case I buy make a difference?

Any adjustments that you advise?

If you plan to overclock your i5 grab a cooler master hyper 212. Its cheap and does a great job.

You should be good with a 650w PSU for a 7850. Says 550w is the minimum so it give you some breathing room for everything else. Just make sure you dont get a real cheap PSU its wise to invest in a good one. Corsair, Seasonic, Antec all make good PSU's.

Case wise just grab something you like thats cheap and has good airflow. The Antec 300 is a popular choice. Pick your PSU out first then figure how much you got left for a case.
