I have decided to go with these parts:

CPU: Intel i5 2500K
CPU cooler: Scythe Mugen 2
Motherboard: AsRock Extreme4
GPU: Gigabyte GTX460 SOC or MSI GTX560 twin frozr OC
PSU: Antec TP-650W or Corsair TX650 V2
Case: Fractal Design R3
RAM: 2x2Gb Elixir 1333Mhz (http://www.elixir-memory.com/search_...2G64CB8HA4N-CG) or the 1600Mhz version
HDD: Samsung 1Tb F3
and a optical DVD-RW drive

The whole package comes around 910-960 €

So what do you guys think? I'm going to OC both the CPU and GPU, so that is why I decided to go with the 650W PSU (always good to be on the safe side, right? ). The Corsair is about 10€ cheaper, but what I have heard and read, that the Antec is perhaps a bit more of a quality/more silent unit than the corsair.

Still a bit thorn with the GPU, though. The 460 SOC is very cheap atm for 182€, while the 560 is around 215-225€. And I'm not a huge gaming typ of guy, so I think I would manage with the 460SOC (It is still pretty powerful card).

So, should I just pull the trigger on this bad boy? Please say what You think of this set up, and if You think I-ll make a huge mistake with these parts, plase say so and suggest better

Thanks alot for your thoughts and help!!
msi gtx560ti is a great card,get that insted of gtx460,
u can also try hd6950 2gb/1gb

As for the SSD, i would strongly recommend investing in one, you'll notice massive performance boosts. you'll bottleneck that cpu like crazy with a hdd
Oh sorry, wrote perhaps a bit unclearly. I meant that the Extreme4 handles SLI and Crossfire, just in general. Didn't mean that I nesessarly will run 2 GPUs. Most likely I will not run 2 GPUs, so that is why I think 650w is good enough.

Why isn't that RAM good? It is 1.5V, which is recommended to SB.

and go with Corsair TX650 V2 psu its better.
Maybe a Corsair HX650 im running i5 2500k and a Asus P8P67 on that.
