Go with a Samsung F3 1TB for storage; fast and reliable. And why not chuck in an SSD for your OS/programs? Will make stuff load a lot faster.

This^

Also, on the topic of overclocking your 2500k, I've got friends who have reached 4-4.3GHz @ 1.152v on stock cooling. I hope that shows how easy it is

your PSU is way too much juice unless you plan on adding another GPU in the near future.

Also, HAF x on sale on their website for 130 dollars (70 off) if you buy it soon. go check the OCN online deals section for info. there'a 20% off code on that page too.

Still planning to go SLI in the near future. I can't purchase on vacation , i come back in august XD.

Taking the advice on the spinpoint F3 cost me less then the seagate.

Will wait on SSD, can't afford buying this now will do in the future and nvr look back.

SSD is yet the prove it self on the market as replacement for HDD, it will just giving it some time the prices will go down eventually.

Also taking EVGA GTX 580 as i can afford it and still stay in budget.

With that in mind (GTX 580), Do i still need higher psu if i would go sli gtx 580

You may need a stronger PSU for taking 580s in SLI, yes. Especially if overclocking.

But, you could probably get away with the 750W PSU with two 580s. With that cooler, you'll have PLENTY of room for overclocking. That's regarded as one of the best CPU coolers.

Good luck

I'd say yes for the sake of headroom. The Corsair AX850 or HX850 will do. Silverstone ST85F-P 850W or Strider 850W gets an honorable mention as well.

i can get the gtx 580 for 409 euro's that is, dont know how much it is in dollars.

Will be getting the 850w HX corsair just for the headroom and further uprgrading trough out the year.
