Ah I thought you were talking about one GPU because 650W seemed too low for me ;D.

Thanks for all the input so far everyone :)

I have found some other shops and compared the prices and my "new" build looks like that:

Case: CoolerMaster HAF932 Advance ATX 130.71€
PSU: 950W Corsair TX950 80+ Bronze 123.15€
Motherboard: Asus P8P67 PRO P67 Sockel 1155 ATX Rev3 138.15€
GPU: 2048MB Sapphire HD 6950 GDDR5 PCIe 205.59€
RAM: G.Skill DIMM 8 GB DDR3-1600 Kit (F3-12800CL9D-8GBXL, RipjawsX) 74.90€
CPU: Intel Core i5 2500K 4x 3.30GHz So.1155 BOX 171.75€
CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus 24.99€
Hard Drive: 1000GB Samsung SpinPoint F3 HD103SJ 43.81€

That adds up to 924.90€ which is below 1000€ yay :D

I still have some questions left ;D

Some shops offer some kind of localized PSU Version for the EU as far as I got that. The SKU looks then like that "CMPSU950TXEU" instead of "CMPSU950TX" is there any meaning to that? I mean aren't they all the same?

I saw a "FLEX" version of the Radeon HD 6950 and it is 20€ more expensive. What is the difference to the normal one?

And at last is there any other suggestion left, can anybody see any incompatibility with the parts I chose and will all that fit in the case I chose?

Since I had some room left until I hit 1000€ I upgraded the RAM, changed the case to the HAF X and chose the Noctua NH-D14 CPU Cooler you guys recommended.

The final build looks like this:

Case: ATX CoolerMaster HAF X 146.85€
PSU: 950W Corsair TX950 80+ Bronze 124.43€
Motherboard: Asus P8P67 PRO P67 Sockel 1155 ATX Rev3 137.95€
GPU: 2048MB Sapphire HD 6950 GDDR5 PCIe 205.73€
RAM: 8GB G.Skill RipjawsX DDR3-1600 DIMM CL8 Dual Kit (timings: CL8 8-8-24) 101.82€
CPU: Intel Core i5 2500K 4x 3.30GHz So.1155 BOX 168.38€
CPU Cooler: Noctua NH-D14 64.24€
Hard Drive: 1000GB Samsung SpinPoint F3 HD103SJ 43.81€

That adds up to 998.11€ + 11.89 shipping. Perfect. :[/B][/B]D

Any comments?

Y'all have different wall sockets over there That may be the difference (I'm just guessing.) The NA version would work, but you'd need to get one of those little adapters.

That was my first thought as well, but there are different wall sockets in the EU as well D:.

It's up to you if you really want that cooler. That SB chip won't produce that much heat compared to the last generation of processors. You could always save some money and go with a cheaper item.

Personally, I would go with something like a ThermalTake Frio or a Scythe product.

D-14 is a great cooler. Seems like everything is good. You have lots of options in terms of upgrading in the future. Have fun with the build!

I have some spare money left until 1000€ and since my parents are helping me out until I hit the 1k I can just go for the best ;D

950W is just overkill even for unlocked 6950s in Crossfire.

http://www.hardocp.com/article/2010/..._card_review/8

Total system wattage minus video card with a 130W TDP CPU is 190W. Even if the unlocked 6950s pull the full 240W of a 6970, that's 670W. Oh, and your CPU is only 95W TDP. Get yourself a solid 750W PSU and call it a day.
