Looking for cheaper alternative sources, or part replacements in my build

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone.
First off I am european so I would prefer european sources.
Excuse mistakes in my english, it is a little late where I live at.

I have put together a build, while always considering the cheaper option for the different parts.
Yet somehow the total cost blew my budget. I would need to either find some different cheaper parts, or find cheaper sources for the parts.

Here is a link to my build:

http://pcpartpicker.com/p/1gEgR

The total price in euro would be around 1100-1200 on the pages I looked parts up:

alternate.de
pixmania.de

The GPU is probably a bad choice here, I plan to keep this computer for a while, and also plan to play games released in ~4 years.
I plan to use this computer for my daily life, including gaming, including browsing the internet, including several hobbies I pursue on my computer.

So yea, if you feel some parts are definitly overkill here, feel free to suggest alternatives.
I would also love to have some cost saving alternative webpages. I was afraid that shipping parts from, say the USA, would cost more in total.
Though the link which I provided to my build gave me a quite cheap price, yet with diverse sources, so again, the shipping part is what worries me.

Thanks in advance. Here are some own comparisons I made between alternate and pixmania (unmentioned parts weren't available on pixmania):

That is a nice build.

Change the cooler to a silverstone argon ar 01. Better and cheaper then the hyper 212.

I have the same gpu and i can maintain 60fps with a mixture of high and medium settings on bf3 64 player maps.

The main problem with that is you would have to pay tax on the item in your country which would probably cost more in total.
