You pick your own hard drive, also. Just find a good pirated Windows 7, don't waste over $100USD on it.

Your total comes out to be $744.95 or 544.75EUR

Also, you'll need atleast a 750w PSU.

Edit: Didn't see about buying from Ebuyer.

2500k has unlocked multiplier (same as black edition amd chips) which allows you to overclock easly without having to byte ur fingers thinking ur ram wouldnt handle the OC , since sandy bridge chips are proven to be top of the line overclockers its a no brainer to get 2500k over 2500 .

The first suggestion looks good to me altough I'd still reccomend getting an nvidia card over an ati card...I've had 2 ati cards before the one I own presently and I've seen a significant increase due to the fact that nvidia has physx and that it helps alot in games... If you can get a Gtx 560 to fit in then this will rock!

Are you crazy 750w??? Look at my sig rig. I'm running a gtx 570 with a phenom 955 @ 3.8ghz on a 650w psu and I've ren my card overclocked so a 550w psu is enough for a gtx 470 and a i5 2500k, considering the 2500k is only a 95w cpu... Just make sure the psu is 80+, it makes a huge difference!

EDIT** Here I made a build for you off ebuyer.com It should suit your needs perfectly and provide more then enough power to play the games you want at max settings. The reason I chose the 2400 instead of the 2500k is because its basiclly 20$ cheaper and since this is a budget build, well I felt putting the emphasis on getting a better VGA was a better idea, since the 2400 destroys any phenom II x4, its a really good choice at this price, and there will be absolutely no bottleneck on the cpu side. Also I got a case with a clear sided window like you wanted



Good luck!

For an AMD build...



Could swap the SSD for Windows. I also included CPU cooling as you never mentioned it (Corsair h70)... Possibly stretch a bit more for a better case.
