    Rather get low profile RAM. Those stupid decoration heatsinks can get in the way of CPU cooler.
    Never going to log into this garbage forum again as long as calling obvious troll obvious troll is the easiest way to get banned.
    Trolling should be.

    Alright, so does wifi come with that motherboard? I'm going to use LAN but would still be nice to know. And ofcourse, does it still fit in the case? (I'm pretty much paranoid after reading some things about things not fitting)

    Are you asking if the motherboard will fit in the case? If so it's a yes.

    No onboard WI-FI on the Extreme4, you'd had to get something like a Asus P8Z77-V Pro or the P8Z77-V you linked for that. You can buy WI-FI separately though. Though it might be worth just sticking with the Asus motherboard you had already picked, there is absolutely nothing wrong with it.

    Alright so after I've seen the newegg how to build your own pc series I've got a few questions.
    1) Does my cooler (linked before) need to have thermal paste? If yes, does it come together with it.
    2) Is a GTX670 really better (read: worth spending €400 on) than an HD7850 (€250)? Or do I need to stick to the middle and get an HD7950 (€350)?
    3) Are there any guides (preferably youtube ones) on how to overclock that processor I'm getting (I'd rather not fry it myself )?

    Cheers for the help so far.

    Or maybe I should wait and get a 660Ti since I'm only ordering mid of August - How does this one compare to all the others?

    1) It's either pre-applied or it's provided in a tube in the box.

    2) This is where providing more specific info on your needs becomes helpful. It really depends which games and which resolution you're aiming at. A 7850/70 can play most games at decently high settings with no issues. Blizzard games are more dependent on the CPU. If you're waiting to order you might as well see what Nvidia has to bring before you decide on your final purchase. I'll add some benchmark of the 78xx vs 7950 vs 670 then you can decide.

    3) I don't know of any specific ones but I'm sure there are some out there. You can do a search as easy as I can.

When is windows 8 coming out and is it worth waiting for it to buy a version of that since I don't have a 64 bit OS?
    I would avoid Seagate, they've really had trouble with their drives this past year, lots of faulty ones. Buy either a Western Digital or Samsung 7200RPM drive.

    I'm buying this one : http://www.komplett.be/komplett/prod...b/details.aspx
    So I'm pretty safe on that part.

    To me it seems the price is worth it for a gtx 670. I'm mostly going to be playing mmo's tho but the gtx gives like 30-50 more fps in some games it seems than the 7850. I know there's not much of a point wanting 120 fps if you don't have the screen to support it but still, I'd like to buy such a screen some day. Which leads me to another question. Is the screen's ms really important or is like 5ms just fine for playing games on?

    I'm going to play with a 1920x1200 resolution by the way.
