-Get DDR 1600MHz
-Get a brand name PSU at least 700Watts
-The Mobo may be a little overboard, IMO

Would this be a good psu? Corsair Gaming Series 700w
What mobo woud you recommend?

Corasir is good and 700W is good but if you plan to corssfire/sli later, it won't be enough power
You can find a good motherboard that can do what you need for a bit cheaper
Again get the 1600mhz DDR3, make sure its 2x8GB
Graphics I would aim for the 7950 but if you can afford it the 7970

How much power would crossfire 7950s need?
Could you suggest any good mobo?
okay i will get some 1600mhz memory but why 2x8gb why not 4x4gb?

CF 7950 id be at 800W. 4x4GB is ok, ur mobo better have 4 slots to begin with otherwise its really crap or its not ATX

well 2x8gb costs about the same but leaves more options later on
Is there a site where we can see what the pricing and stuff is like in Finalnd?
Yeah I agree 800W is about right for CF7950

Would this be a good psu then? Thermaltake Smart Modular 80 + Gold 850w

I will be ording my parts from a store in germany called mindfactory

Thermaltake is a bit iffy and unreliable at times
I have a Thermal take 430W that has been going fine for years but other have had failed ones
I would look for brands like crosair, antec, seasonic, xfx
