Hi everybody!

Ok so here, right after Christmas when i get my salary, i will finally be able to get all the components for the pc i am going to build.

It is going to be around 10.000DKK which is around 1000£. I am no shark when it comes to hardware, whats good and what is not, so i would really love some input on what i could possibly do to get a better finish.

This is what i have settled on by now:

ASUS P8Z77-V Pro (Motherboard)

Core i5, 3570K (I was told i don't need I7 for gaming since the only difference was hyperthreading) (CPU)

Corsair Hydro Series H100 Extreme Performance Liquid CPU Cooler.

Corsair Proffesional Series HX 650W (PSU)

Corsair Vengeance 2x8 GB RAM

NZXT Crafted Series LEXA S (Case, i believe this is doesn't matter for you?)

Samsung 830 Series MZ-7PC128 D (128GB SSD)

Samsung Spinpoint F4EG HD204UI (2TB HDD)

XFX Radeon 7950 Double Dissipation Edition (GPU)

I think that was it. Thanks on forehand :)  :) 

Kind regards Arne Emil

EDIT: I am able to stretch my budget a bit. - PS. I didn't know where to post this, so if any moderator finds this and finds it not suitable, then please go ahead and move the post :-)

-change the motherboard to a gigabyte z77x-ud3h or a asrock z77 extreme4 instead of the v-pro
-change the CPU cooler to a noctua nh-d14
- if the xfx 650w or the tx650w v2 is cheaper, get that instead. if you only plan on running one video card, get a 550w
-get 2x4gb 1600mhz cl9 ram. get it either from corsair or gskill. make sure its low profile. 16gb of ram is overkill
-the case does matter. id get a fractal define r4 if you have it there. the arc midi is also nice. if you dont have those, check out the corsair 500R
-id get a regular seagate barracuda 1tb 64mb hard drive. green drives are rather slow
-with the money saved, id get a msi gtx 670 power edition, a gigabyte windforce 3x gtx 670, or a xfx or sapphire 7970ghz edition video card

Hey TheBigTroll, thanks for the answer!

"if you only plan on running one video card, get a 550w"

So if i plan on upgrading to dual video cards later, should i get 650W then? or wouldn't it work for the time i would be having a single card?
