So, i am a "noob" that wants a computer that can handle games like GW2, Skyrim, League of Legends, etc... now i found out that if i get the components for a computer and put them together yourself the price will be much lower than if you would buy it from a store in a box :p ¨

So ive been doing research and stuff and came up with this:

processor: AMD A10-5800k quadcore 3.8 GHz
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-f2a85x-up4
RAM: G.skill Ares 8gb (2x4g)
HDD: Seagate barracuda 1TB 7200 rpm SATA 6GB/s
Case: Rosewill R519-BK Black ATX Mid Tower Computer Case w/ 500W Power Supply
Cooler: COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 Plus
Graphics card: Sapphire radeon HD 6670 1GB

from Newegg, i can buy all this for 554 dollars which equals about 415 euros.
Still, i would like to ask some "pros" that know much about computers and computer builds if this really is worth it.
Here is the link for my shopping cart.

Please give me some feedback and advise on this before i buy it.
Thanks.

oh, yes, i forgot one thing.
The case and power supply is in a bundle, but i do not know if the case will fit my motherboard correctly, incase, can you help me find a better one that my motherboard would fit well into.

would this build be viable, does the motherboard support the video card?
Sorry for asking so many questions but i want to be really sure before wasting my money ^^

ok i made a small change that video card from another site costs $260 but with http://pcpartpicker.com/p/upWa it is better because i added the 7870 which is cheaper than $260 and about 2-5fps slower also everything works together and who said that it was wasting it's more of an experience

well, now i have been pondering between different builds and finally got everything together

CPU: AMD Phenom II x4 965
GPU: ASUS Radeon HD 7850 2GB
HDD: SEAGATE Barracuda 7200 rpm 1TB
PSU: Corsair Builder 600 watt 80+
Mobo: ASUS M5A78L/USB3 Socket AM3+
Case: CM Elite 310 Mid Tower
Memory: KINGSTON HyperX 8GB 2x4 DDR3, i think it had 1600 speed...

So thats about it. Ill close this thing now cause i already ordered the computer :)
