I think that this build will do you well. I left some room in the budget open for shipping. Some of the merchants listed will be from NewEgg, but you can change the merchant with an option on the top right of the page.
If you have any questions, just ask.

That's a good build but no need to get a Z77 motherboard if you're not using the 3570K. You could drop that to an H77 and then upgrade the GPU to a Radeon 7950.

Also that processor is pick-up only. And I feel that coming from Norway to an American store just to pick up a processor seems like a hassle a bit.

Yeah you'd probably pay double the system cost just for a ticket from Oslo to Santa Ana, CA. :lol: 

If you don't know a local shop where you live I'd suggest checking the link in my signature.

Here was the best I could do:

HD: 1TB Seagate Barracuda ST - 569 kr
Optical: Sony DVD Burner - 139 kr

@g-unit. Is there a good H77 board that has two pci e 3.0 slots that won't limit a graphics card. If there is, I am unaware.
@Deemo. The list was put together as what to buy, not necessarily where to buy from. That's why I included information for the OP to change the merchant.

Your link just took me straight to the Newegg homepage. Probably something on my end, but I will take your word for it.
