The build looks pretty good, the only thing I would really change is to try to get a more powerful video card if you want this rig to play games well for the amount of time you specified. I would try and get a cheaper keyboard and put that money towards a better GPU like a GTX 570 or a AMD 6950 2GB. Good luck

The gainward 560 had 2gb VRAM buffer, but the Gainward 570 is the superior gpu by far

Would help if you link the website you're using

Oh thx will see

It would only cost you about 500kr more to get a 570 so that might be worthwhile considering.

Also change the ram to 4gb, 8gb is useless for gaming
