So, I had already asked a friend for a computer setup and he was very helpful, I don't want to be rash with this though. Which is why I'm asking for advice here ^^
The list is like this (note, the prices aren't completely accurate, have included the delivery costs with them all. Will probably be cheaper if I order from the same place, gonna check that out when I've decided what to get):
INTEL core i7 processor i7-3770 - €275
Motherboard: Asus MB P8H61-M PRO LGA1155 socket - €77
GTX 650 Ti 2GB - €160
Antec Earthwatts EA-650 watt GREEN - €78
Some random internal HD (1 TB) + SSD (64 GB) - €60 + €50
Some random memory 4GB x2 - €40
So I was wondering if it'd be worth the money if I instead took a HD 7750 or perhaps HD 7770? Or maybe some other graphic card? And of course if the motherboard/PSU/cooling is still enough if I do that.
I have about €80 - €100 that I can spend extra on it.
I plan to play games like Assassin's Creed III on it, and would really like to play it on high settings. And not have my pc shutting down because it can't handle it. I also have 2 screens, but that shouldn't matter much anyways with this setup, should it?
Card and processor are looking good. I would change the "some random memory" to DDR3 4gb x 2 memory. (making it from 40 to 60/65.)
Motherboard .... i don't know. i think the motherboard will hold you back compared to the card and processor.
Change CPU to i5 2500k, not ivy bridge, get a propper cooler with the money saved and clock the hell out of it. Will beat any ivy bridge clock. Remove SSD. Overrated, get a better GPU 660ti. Go with 500 watt and a asus sabertooth 67p board. gg and you get better performance for cheaper money
Don't bother with a 3770(k), save 100 euros and get a 3570K instead. The motherboard you selected is only compatible with an Ivy Bridge processor if you can update the BIOS, which would require a different CPU installed to do so. Yes, you need a graphics card unless you want to be playing on lowest settings at about 5 FPS.

Ok, thanks for your suggestions.
Are there any notable differences between the Asrock Z77 Pro3 and Asrock Z77 Extreme3?
Butler Log, is the included cooling enough if I go with that setup? Or should I also invest extra in that?
(Btw, am also planning to dual/multibox, wouldn't it be better to get an i7 then, or does that really not matter?)
Oh, and I already have a case, might still buy a new one. Haven't decided on that yet. (And I hadn't asked if a graphics card was needed, I know it is. Thanks for making me laugh though )
