Hello,

Since my local shops are too expensive I have decided to buy my parts online.

I was thinking something about this
-Intel® Core™ i5-3570K (Processor)
-ASUS HD7850-DC2-2GD5-V2 2GB (Graphics card)
-ASUS P8Z77-M (Motherboard)
-Kingston 2x4gb ram
-1TB HDD
- 600W Psu

My budget is 800-850 euro excluding the peripherals (Mouse,keyboard,monitor) and OS.

Could I get something better with that budget?

I think you can get much better than that. Take a look at this build.

If you have any questions, just ask. Sorry, price is in pounds.

This build looks pretty good, thanks for the reply. Will the 550W be enough if I want to overclock the CPU?

I will stick with the 3570k I think. Is there a big difference between these processors? (Keep in mind I will use it for gaming)

Yeah that is expensive.

For gaming do not purchase a Xeon - it's meant for graphics workstations and video processing / editing.

This is the best I could come up with::

Case: http://www.eshopcy.com.cy/show.phtml?id=PER.806246
PSU: http://www.eshopcy.com.cy/show.phtml?id=PER.640139

That's way too expensive, I will order them online. Are there any good guides building a desktop or do you think I should better take it to a technical to build it? :??: 
Anyways thanks for the help. :)
