Well, the TX750W PSU is way cheaper here for some reason, so it'll be either the same price of more expensive for one with less Watt

I would change the ram. I don't know how the prices are in Denmark, but I've found that A-DATA ram works just as well and is often times cheaper than Corsair for the same budget CL9 sticks. The entry level g.skill sticks are worth a look as well.

Edit - didn't see the 560 being more expensive, go with a 460 or an amd equivalent
The deals aren't better - described it above

Well, G.Skills aren't to find in that pricerange, A-DATA neither. I could get some Kingston HyperX?

460 it is --> he'll be SLI'ing

460 have gf104, newer, less power hungry, lower noise and less heat. i think they scale better in SLI as well.

these are just my opinions and may not reflect other people's opinions.
Wow, you really enlightened me I will go for a GTX 460 for him instead!
