I (like most of people on Steam) want to get a good computer for gaming under 900 eur.

Allright, I will probably get this configuration:

http://www.mlacom.si/konfigurator?myconf&id=mbrd_6100,proc_6079,ram_4457,graf_6166,disk1_50 32,chas_9165,opt_4369,pow_3637

Any last words before I buy it?

Thank you for your help.

NOTE: Try to ignore the lagnuage, its slovenian. =)

Seems OK. Could you get a 7870 instead and still be within budget?

If you click the arrow next to the item, you can change it to something else (in order of price).

SAPPHIRE Radeon HD7870 OC GHz Edition 2GB PCIe is 360.52 in that store, so that is about 100 eur more.

Maybe if I would take worse motherboard, but I like this one because it has many USB ports and gives me a chance to upgrade in the future.

Well, they don't have AMD processors either, because it is just connected to the store. If you know something better, just post it here and I will find it in one of the stores close to where I live.

I will buy computer in-person not via internet. =)

Ok. I wouldn't go any lower than that motherboard.
I personally would go with the CORSAIR CMPSU-600CXV2 600W PSU over the Aerocool. simply because of the brand name.

Oh, yes. Thats the one salesguy offered to me in the first place. I just changed it while searching for the case and never changed back.

Personally, I'd spend an extra €16 on the i5 3570K - in case you decide that you want to overclock in the future.
I'd also change the PSU for the 550W XFX PRO core edition. The Corsair PSU is okay but not their best and the XFX is a rebadged Seasonic unit and better quality.
I'd also change the RAM for a 1600mhz kit. Maybe the Corsair Vengence at 59.08 €.

Total with those changes - 906,86 €

Would 550W be enought for this PC?

If I would decide to take 1600mhz kit, I would probably take 57.54 eur one, but I heard that no person could really see the difference and it doesn't really effect the gameplay.

This RAM and your PSU would make it 889 or 905 if I decide to take K version. That would be in my price range, but I still haven't decided about RAMs.

Seems OK. Could you get a 7870 instead and still be within budget?

Did you write OK in capital just because of grammar or did you try to say that it is only OK and nothing better?

550W would be fine for that computer. Corsair is a good brand but the TX, HX and AX models are the best. The XFX one is better than that particular Corsair 'CX' model and has a higher rating on the 12V rail - 44A Vs 40A on the Corsair. It's a better made unit and would actually deliver more power. It's all about the amps on the 12V rail ;)

The 1600mhz RAM would be better if you ever overclocked that CPU and if you did at a later date, you'd be better with a kit that doesn't have the tall heatspreaders as they are likely to interfere with any after market heatsink / fan (something else you would need to invest in further down the line if you overclocked it)

The first one is the better choice and Id go with doc's recommendation on the PSU the Corsair CX series are not as good as there ?X models..

Refferal link? Really?

I know the prices in my store are a bit high, but I choose it because I just drive 5 min there. If any of the componenets break I can just drive there and they call me when it is fixed.

If I would buy in other countries I would first search in Austria and Germany. France is quite far, so I think that those 100 EUR would get replaced with sending fee and things like that.

Also, if something breaks, I would have to send it all the way back into France which would take ages. I don't even speak Franch, so if they would call me we couldn't really communicate (as far as I know people from France aren't really good in English either).

I will stick with shops from Slovenia (as close to my home as possible).

And the point that you gave me refferal link doesn't give me more trust into you either (and I didn't really understand what you wrote).
