So far I'm buying from CaseKing.de and Komplett.dk.

This is my cart ($1293.5)

Case: Haf 912 $98
CPU: i5-3570k $245.5
SSD: Corsair Force GS 128GB $148.5
CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo $39
RAM: 2x Corsair Vengeance LP Series 4GB (8GB total) $71.5
Motherboard: Asus P8Z77-V LXZ77 $130.5
GPU: EVGA GTX 670 FTW 2GB $446
PSU: Corsair CX600M $88.5
Optical Drive: LiteOn iHAS124 R/W $26

Total: $1293.5

Which is a bit expensive, because the prices in Europe are pretty expensive.

Are there any components I could change to save money but without losing a noticeable amount of performance?

The CX for that price is way too expensive (its an entry level unit not designed for gamers) regardless where you live.

Choose a PSU from this list that's on sale in your country.

Although you're aiming for a 600w PSU, a quality 450w unit will be more than enough.

I get tired of explaining to people that a single GPU system is not going to pull more than 400w without a LOT of work smile.gif
