Hi all,

So I've done some more research and took some advice from the comments in my previous post. Currently im at this:

CPU: Intel Core i5-3570K 3.4GHz Quad-Core Processor
CPU Cooler: Cooler Master TPC812
Motherboard - Asus P8Z77 V Delu9xe
Memory: Corsair Vengeance 16GB (2x 8GB)
Storage: Crucial M4 256GB SSD
Storage: Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive
Video Card: Sapphire Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition 3GB Video Card
Case: NZXT Switch 810 (White) ATX Full Tower Case
Power Supply: 850 Watt XFX XXX Edition Modular 80+ Silver

Approximate Purchase Date: Next week or so.

I'll buy a monitor in about a month or two. Don't really know what it's going to be, but probably a high resolution 27" LED.

Don't need any thing else (OS, Optical Drive, Mouse etc.)

Location: Germany (but I'm not German :p )

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Any, as long as you take the shipping cost into account.

Overclocking: Yes, between 4.1 - 4.3

Crossfire: Yes, in the future

I would like to keep the Radeon video card. The rest is open to suggestions. I've been told that the CPU in combination with the cooler should be able to go up to 4.3GHz. The mobo should suffice. The memory is a bit overkill but the price differance is not so big so i just went with it (might be usefull in future). Storage seems fine. I chose the 850W PSU for the crossfire, but a 750W will do as well (I think).

What do You think? Any suggestions for improvements?

Thanks in advance,

Mulik25

The build that's been specced out already is fairly good, I only propose minor tweaks.
Dont know of any German/Europeon sites, I'l use Newegg as a reference so you know part numbers, info and such. I'l also include multiple options as I dont know what availability will be like.

Get a Low Profile memory kit, otherwise it may cause problems with the heatsink.

That motherboard is a bit overkill for what your after, something like an AsRock Z77 Extreme4, Gigabyte GA-Z77X-D3H or ASUS P8Z77-V LK would be better suited.

The Crucial M4 is a bit old now and is outperformed by newer drives. Recommend getting an OCZ Vector or Samsung 840 Pro.

I've only been looking into the german ebay stores to get some idea of the prices. But if You know good US sites that ship for free or at low cost that would be helpfull. 1200-1300 euros budget.

hardwareversand.de has most of the parts. They dont have the cooler and the PSU but they may change as long as they do their job.

Will the ASUS P8Z77-V LK do well with the OC and Crossfire?

All the boards I recommended are about the same in terms of features, except the ASUS has two less SATAIII ports. All will overclock and handle dual Crossfire/SLI just fine.
