    2) What's your budget? Are tax and shipping included?
    Not more than €1,000.00=$1,249.74

    3) Which country do you live in? If the U.S, please tell us the state and city if possible. The
    Netherlands

    4) What exact parts do you need for that budget? CPU, RAM, case, etc. The word "Everything" is not a valid answer. Please list out all the parts you'll need.
    See list

    5) If reusing any parts, what parts will you be reusing? Please be especially specific about the power supply. List make and model.
    Yes, a LG Flatron W2243S-PF monitor and a brother DCP-130c.

    6) Will you be overclocking?

    8) When do you plan on building/buying the PC?
    Late august or September.

    9) What features do you need in a motherboard? RAID? Firewire? Crossfire or SLI support? USB 3.0? SATA 6Gb/s? eSATA? Onboard video (as a backup or main GPU)? UEFI? etc.
    I don’t need Crossfire or SLI and Firewire. I do like USB 3.0, SATA 6Gb/s and eSATA. Onboard gpu and UEFI would be nice but is not necessary.

    10) Do you already have a legit and reusable/transferable OS key/license? If yes, what OS? Is it 32bit or 64bit?
    Yes, Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit.
  2. For that build it makes no sense to purchase an i5-3570 if you're not getting the unlocked model. The i5-3450 will handle everything just fine - the speed differences between CPUs in that range are so minor that the .2GHz won't make any difference in how your build handles.

    I personally think the peripherals are kind of overkill but overall that's a pretty good build. There's nothing I would really change.

    EDIT: maybe I'm getting the GIGABYTE GA-H77-D3H instead of the GIGABYTE GA-Z77-D3H mobo as I won't be oc nor would I need SLI. I might also get the i5 3450 or 3470 instead of the i5 3570 as the performance change is very little.
