Thanks for the responses.

At first I thought of putting in the nVidia GeForce GTX 670 but for about 150€ less i could get the newer Club 3D Radeon HD 7870XT jokerCard (with the Tahiti LE chipset). It was a big price difference and not a huge difference in performance. But if you guys aren't convinced about the brand 3D then i might go with the GTX 670 and a cheaper MoBo. Or another graphics card if you guys have more tips :) 

I like the PSU you suggested. Good price for a modular and 80+ gold PSU.

Mindfactory ships to Belgium (according to the very fast response from the sales team there). Does anyone have experience with this store?
