Hello,
First i would like Excuse my bad english ^^.
As the title say i'am building new gaming pc, my first pick for now is:

mother: ASRock Z77M 96.00 €
memory: Corsair Vengeance Blue 8GB 2133Mhz cl11 KIT - 1.50V 58.80 €
space: Toshiba DT01ACA 1TB 32MB - SATA3 - 6Gb/s 80.40 €
power suply: XFX Core Edition PRO 650W - 80+ Bronze 86.40 €
graphic: PNY GeForce GTX 680 2GB 456.00 €
cpu: Intel Core i5 3570K (3,40Ghz, 6MB) BOX 222.00 €
all that cost 1000 € and that's my limit to spend.
little high prices here ^^.

problem is i know nothing about motherboard and i don't know if this motherboard will be good enough for cpu and gpu (use it 100% in gaming so it don't limit it) .

another thing ZOTAC GeForce GTX 670 2GB OC or PNY GeForce GTX 680 2GB.
i really don't know which one is better and with 670 i would save 100€ and spend on other things.

thanks for any answer

Good experience with ASRock for me but mileage may vary.

I'd drop the hard drive completely, drop the 680 to a 670, and use the money from those two things to buy the largest quality solid state drive (SSD) I could. That's all assuming you're not using this to store movies, music, etc as well.

What game do you play? If you don't play those high-end games then you can downgrade your GPU, and yea, the Toshiba is not a good one, get a Seagate Barracuda 500GB ST500DM002, it's better and you just need 500GB.

I would suggest a SSD for system and game installs and a normal HDD for storage. For a decent 500gb SSD drive cost bout 400-600 USD, however you might get away with a 256gbs SSD if you are good at managing installs. Also I would suggest not getting OCZ vertex drives I've had some bad experience with them and from other reviews I had read others experience the same.

Agree with ^

And most OCZ SSDs are SATA II which makes a little difference from the HDDs. Prefer Crucial or Corsair, they are better.

P/S to thedimsum: Can you give me a plate of Lor Mai Kai? Hahaha

I mean playing bf3 little skyrim trying graphic mobs...
so Seagate Barracuda 7200.14 - 500GB 16MB SATA3 - 6Gb/s should be good?
i would buy SSD but i'am not sure about my old HDD(gettind bluse screen "Dumping Physical Memory to disk" i try changing memory but it doesn't help), and there is no problem with motherboard? and what about 670 gtx and 680 gtx It is worth 100€ ?

and ty for answer so far

Go 670 and get the SSD. You're building a fast PC and the SSD will make it feel way faster. With the 100 difference between 670-680, go 128GB ssb and TB data disk.

What is your total amount of space used on your current drive after you have deleted games you no longer play? If that's a reasonable amount less than the biggest SSD you can afford you don't need a hard drive (again assuming you're only using this for gaming). All it requires is keeping crap you don't need off the drive.

Yeah get the 670, 95% performance of 680 and you can save $100 for a SSD.

i though about ssd and i'am not gonna take it because there is no performance in fps and i don't think i would like to spend 100€ so it load me 5-10 sec faster :??: 
but i did some changes, i put 670 gtx ftw save few euros and i think about motherboard under 150€(if any one know any better motherboard for that money please tell me),i change power supply to 750W i get other cooler for cpu (to overclock)

memory:Corsair Vengeance Blue 8GB 2133Mhz cl11 KIT - 1.50V 58.80 €

cpu: Intel Core i5 3570K (3,40Ghz, 6MB) BOX 222.00 €

graphic: EVGA GeForce GTX 670 2GB FTW 372.00 €

HDD: Seagate Barracuda 7200.14 - 500GB 16MB SATA3 - 6Gb/s 70.80 €

cooler: Noctua NH-U9B SE2 (am2+, am3, FM1, 775, 1155, 1156, 1366) - AKCI 45.00 €
