Hello everyone,
It's time to upgrade to new PC after about 3 years with my current pc. But, because my desktop is in really bad shape, I thought building new PC and starting from "scratch". Only things what I already have, is CD/DVD reader and HDD or internal memory, or how its called, sorry bout that :p  Now, here is the specs, what I think of buying the PC will be. Is everything fine with these specs, or do I have to change some components?

Approximate Purchase Date: The next week.

Budget Range: 450 EUR max! (let's keep it as low as we can, ok? =) )

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming (dayz, battlefield3 and upcoming games) and internet surfing =)

Parts Not Required: keyboard, mouse, monitor, speakers, OS, CD/DVD reader, Hard Drive

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: www.arvutikeskus.ee, some parts may come from amazon.de too.

Country: Estonia

Parts Preferences: Not really. As cheap as it can get.

Overclocking: Maybe

SLI or Crossfire: No

Monitor Resolution: I think it was 1280x1024, I haven't looked up on it long time :D 

Additional Comments: not really...

One thing I don't get is the motherboard. I saw, it was reccomended to have with this kind of CPU somewhere. But idk... If it needs to be changed, maybe someone can find motherboard from arvutikeskus.ee (here is motherboards, on left you can choose the type of the motherboard: http://www.arvutikeskus.ee/est/TOOTEKATALOOG/ARVUTIKOMP...)?

Thanks all =)

well, I'm trying to keep it low, no need on every game ultra, just so it would do the job - and I know the budget is low, but if we go to 650£, I can get prebuilt at the same price. So there wouldn't be any need of this messing round... I'm not really going to play 24/7 and have everything maxed out. And I thought this system would be fine with these specs.. Only thing that really badly worried me was the motherboard. Will it even go with the graphics card and cpu?
