The keyboard stands out as being more expensive than it needs to be in my opinion. I'm not sure because of the exchange rates but if you are paying a premium for that keyboard I would recommend saving some money by getting a cheaper keyboard

I would save a lot of money by getting an HD6950, OC it and it will be almost on par with the GTX570.
About the keyboard, I have a 10 euro keyboard and am perfectly happy with it

That keyboard looks much more appropriate. Your motherboard does not actually support SLI so you would not be able to add a second 570 later on, you woud need to step up to a motherboard like the GD55 by MSI to allow SLI. The suggestion of the AMD 6950 does deserve your consideration, it is close to 570 in performance after unlocking the shaders of it and is much cheaper in most parts of the world.

EDIT: I was looking at your first motherboard, but yes the GD55 will support SLI so you could add a second 570 later.

1TB F3 Spinpoint, fastest 1TB HDD and usually price is lower than other hard drives, even ones with less capacity.

387,00 Kr

There is no contest, without question, and no one can say any different that this is the large capacity HDD to get these days.

For almost 200,00 kr less I would have to agree. I have had no problems with my 500gb spinpoint F3. If anybody wants to help me find the Motherboard section on that website I will help look for a better Motherboard that can do SLI.

EDIT: nevermind I forgot searching "p67" works in any language.

The GD55 listed on that website does not specify that it is B3 revision, which you want because there was a problem on the SATA2 ports of the B2 revision. So if you got the GD55 and it turns out it is not B3 (it would say on the box) you would have to deal with the hassle of getting a replacement from MSI, and I don't know what that would entail in your country. Some other options on that site that are B3 would be the Asus Sabertooth for the same price or the Asus P67 Deluxe for 170,00 kr more, but I believe it would be worth the difference. It has more powerphases for the CPU, a USB 3 front connector box dual gigabit LAN. Great board overall, if you can afford it, if not the Sabertooth would serve you well also.

EDIT: actually I would recommend the Asus P67 Evo, it is very very similar to the Deluxe but costs only 15 kr more than the MSI GD55 you were looking at previsouly. Seems to be a great value.

Everything looks pretty much great except for a few minor things. First I would recommend the P67 Evo over the Deluxe as the only thing you lose is the front USB 3 box and going from 16 powerphases to 12, neither of which should be very important and neither would be worth the ~15% price difference to me. With that extra 160 kr saved I think we can get you some slightly faster RAM which would be nice. Let me look.

This is what I was able to find so far. Corsair 2x2GB 1600MHz. It's better than what you had, because it is faster both in timings (CL8 as opposed to what you had which I assume was CL9) and MHZ (1600MHz vs. 1333MHz) and it still uses the 1.5v that you want to use for the processor you picked. Sandybridge processors are not recommended to go higher than 1.5 volts on the memory. I don't know if it's worth the extra money to you but it's certainly better than what you had. If you can find something better yourself just make sure than it doesn't have higher than 1.5v most importantly, then try and see if you can find it in 1600MHz secondly and then least important would be the tighter timings of CL8 instead of CL9. Good luck and you should be very happy with your system, it will serve you well.
