Hi all

I am making a new build after a long time.

I am going to overclock this so that i can play at 1920x1080 resolution with a good framerate 30fps or more games like BF3.

My setup is as follows

Motherboard = Asrock Z77 Extreme4 = 140€
CPU = Intel Core i5 2500K 3.3 GHz = 202€
Ram = G.Skill Ripjaws X 8GB DDR3 Non ECC CL11 2133MHz (F3-17000CL11D-8GBXL) (Kit 2 x 4096) = 66€
HD = WD Caviar Black 5002 AALX = 88€
Video Card = Sapphire Radeon 7850 OC = 268€
PSU = Coolermaster 620w = already got one
Case = Undecided

My build is around 769€ now but i dont want to go for more than 900 eurw any suggestions are welcome

You don't need a Z77 Board Unless you have an IB processor.

The price difference was very small between the motherboards i was looking but if you have a suggestion i would like to hear is my first time i am building a system for overclocking so i don't have a good knowledge of what motherboard i should use i choose that because they were saying that is good for overclocking.

The rest of the parts look good; it's just that the 2500k will not be able to take advantage of Z77 features, so I would either get a Z68 mobo or upgrade to a i5-3570k.
As for a case, I would get something like the Fractal design Core 3000 or a Corsair Carbide 300r:

If you want to go cheaper, the NZXT Source 210 and the Antec 302 are also solid options:
