8GB G.Skill RipjawsX DDR3-1600 56 €

This is 600$ together.

Will this PC work good in games ?

I think you'll do just fine. A GTX 660 Ti BOOST however, would be worth it.

You ought to list the PSU too.

You may be overkill on the MB front - a 970 or 990X would be fine.

Other option is a 7870XT.

He did, it's a CX600.

How do you mean overkill ??
Reason why I want to buy this mobo now, is price. Its price is the same as a price of 970 mobos. And if I ever start to use SLI this will be great mobo for the price.
What do you think ?? Do you have some better options with this build or with mobo that doesnt cost more than mine ??

You can do SLI/CF on lower end boards too - but not on that PSU.

I can't really price stuff unless I see a store - europe is too big to find a one-size-fits-all place like Newegg.

Now I got a 850w PSU LC POWER lc8850. Is this good ?
I was thinking or I think they have pretty good prices for this area in Europe.

Thank you. I have a deal with i5 3470 for almost the price of fx 6300 so i must see what will happen. If I buy that i must change everything.
Btw. Do you know is ASRock z77 extreme3 good motherboard? thanks again

That's a good deal on the CPU. You don't need a Z77 board, as you can't OC that chip and I doubt you will be doing crossfire/SLI. Go for a cheap Asrock/Asus/Gigabyte/Msi Z77/B75 board.

I'd stick with the CX600, or anything 500W+ in my sig. Not the LC-Power - that appears to be a fire hazard.
