    Please share your opinions, I'd like to have the best stuff for my money. Also if you notice something is missing or I have something that isn't necessary please tell. I have 0 experience configuring a PC, so things might be missing.

    You don't need a sound card and you don't need a network adapter. The motherboard's soundcard and network card is often good enough for general use. If you wanted an actual good experience while gaming I'd get atleast a core i5. The core i3 is good, but for your budget it would be more than benificial since most of the I5's just annihilate the AMD cpu's at the same price range and below with no/barely any overclocking required.

    Amazon does ship to NL. But it takes like 2 weeks from .com but from .co.uk it's like 3 days or something. I purchased my entire pc at Alternate, great company. I will create a list and post it

    Yea, downside is that Alternate is a bit expensive compared to other shops. But they offer great service.

    Any haswell core i5 that you can afford will do. Like the i5-4460 and the i5-4440. Just stay away from the i5-4570T for it only has two cores.

    Okay, thanks for the info. Still doubting between building it myself and letting the company I order the parts at build it. What would you recommend someone with 0 experience in building pc's?

    If you have 0 experience building PC's then you can always ask a friend of yours who may have built a computer before for some help. Building a PC is more involved than just "lego". I don't doubt you can make the PC from scratch but as a first build the cable management might be a little messy. Youtube and online guides DO help but it helps WAY more when there is a second person right there with you.


    Some things to remember though are:
    1.) Build your PC out of your case first with say the motherboard on top of the motherboard box. That way if you'll know before hand if you have a dead component. If you need some help turning on the computer through the motherboard directly you can always ask me!

    -> If your computer DOESN'T post then this is when it becomes a little bit more involved and this is when you look at the manual FOR sure/Contact the manufacturers/get a computer technician or builder to help you troubleshoot.

    2.) Check the Manuals. Seriously do it. It bothers me a bunch when someone doesn't look at the manual on how to properly install parts and then when they fk it up I'm the technician who fixes the fuck ups.
    3.) CPU installation is probably the SCARIEST part of the building process but do remember that there are youtube guides to show you. Generally there is a gold/white/black triangle that will help you align the CPU correctly.

    ->Remember that YOU SHOULD NEVER force a CPU inside a socket. A little wiggle to make sure the CPU is installed is fine.

    Here is a little setup. Good CPU and GPU and enough storage space. Don't know if you care about the case but I chose a nice one.

    . @Paralyze

    For starters save money and get a AMD FX-6300 ( 109.99 USD )

    You don't need a sound card.

    G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR is around 2$ more and is much more proficient. (46.00 - 47.00 USD)

    You don't need a solid state drive. ( Save the money for a better RAM and CPU )

    Lose the network card.

    Get a Corsair case: I recommend the Corsair Graphite 230t CC (Currently using it and love it) ( 79.99 )

    Get a Optical Drive (They are around 14$ USD)

    Get the MSI 970 Gaming AM3+ AMD 970 6 x SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard around ( 80.00 USD)

    Get a Western Digital Blue WD10EZEX 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive ( 52.00 USD )

    Keep the same power supply and the graphics card is fine

    Top it off with a Cooler Master Seidon 120V - Compact All-In-One CPU Liquid Water Cooling System with 120mm Radiator and Fan ( 69.99 USD )

    Comes out to 613.36 Euro ( Without Tax )

    Hope this helped! Just my personal opinion.
