Hello everyone, for the last few weeks I've been selecting hardware for my new computer, and this website and you people in the forums have all been very helpful.

Now, could you please help me to make the final choice? It is my first home-built computer and I REALLY need advice.

I had thought of:

Case: Cooler Master Elite 430 €43.23
PSU: Antec EA-650 Platinum (650W) €94.73
MoBo: Asus P8H77-V LE €97.79
CPU: Intel Core i7 3770 €284.64
RAM: Kingston HyperX 2x4GB 1600MHz €44.65
Graphics card: Gigabyte nVidia GTX 670 €390.99
HDD: Seagate Barracuda 1TB 64MB cache €75.68 (Is it worth to upgrade to 2TB for €25? (US$32))
CD/DVD recorder: Sony Optiarc 24x €18.28
Wi-Fi PCI: WN851N PCI Wi-Fi 300Mbit/s €13.76 (I need WiFi)
CPU fan: Scythe Rasetsu €34.20
Thermal paste: Arctic Silver Ceramique 3 €3.90
Fan controller: (MoBo supports 1 fan aside of cpu fan...) Aerocool X-Vision €28.58
Case fans: 1xThermalright X-Silent 140mm, 5xThermalright X-Silent 120mm 1x€8.85, 5x€7.43
Total: €1176,03 (about 1550 US$)

First of all: are these parts compatible between them? Are there any bottlenecks, or crappy parts that won't last? I want this computer to last (even if it becomes a bit obsolete, but to not "die" soon).

I will use this computer for gaming, game developing, video editing and the usual internet surf and watch movies.
Also, could you please recommend me a monitor 1920x1080, and compatible with nVidia 3d ? (I'll also buy the glasses)

I prefer to buy parts from Amazon, be it amazon.es or amazon.de. As you will probably see, I don't plan to overclock anything nor use SLI.

Thank you very much in advance

Also, I'm planning to buy the nVidia 3d wired glasses. Could you please recommend me a monitor to go with them?

Just a few changes to that build. That Kingston RAM you have up there is 1.65v and you want 1.5v RAM. Also that CM 430 is a small case and it gets cramped not to mention it has no front 3.0 USB ports and not so great cooling.

Thank you very much! I have changed the RAM sticks, sadly the case you recommended me is too big for the place I have (I had thought of getting a Cooler Master HAF earlier, but then I saw its size).
Also, I'm not upgrading my router now, I'll have a look at it later but yes, you are right (I need good Internet for gaming).
Thanks for the links to the screens! :)
