I was thinking about:

wich would be 852,78 euro's total


But I heard that ain't great for gaming... so should I go for this instead?

MOTHERBOARD: Asus P8Z77-M,socket 1155   97,99 euro's
http://www.mycom.be/computer/componenten/moederbord/p8z77-m-s1155.html
and

wich would be 888,82 euro's total

    second edit: At long last, I think it's ready, sorry for all the problems
  3. it is much easier for us. we just need that information to get you going. listing what you were going to get doesnt do too much for us since we will be picking usually completely diffrent components for you
