    thinking about buying this for a new computer, how does it look?

    How does my build look?

    Keep in mind that im danish, if you think the prices are to high.

    MSI N660Ti PE 2GD5/OC - GPU - GF GTX 660 Ti - 2 GB GDDR5 296,72 Euro

    ASUS SABERTOOTH Z77 - Motherboard - USB 3.0 - Gigabit Ethernet 195,15 Euro

    Crucial m4 - Solid state drive - 256 GB - intern harddisk 187,11 Euro

    PSU 750W Corsair AX750W / 141,82 Euro

    Corsair Vengeance C70 - Miditower - ATX - No PSU 124,81 Euro

    Corsair Hydro Series H100 Extreme Liquid CPU Cooler *5 years warranty 93,66 Euro

    Corsair DDR3 PC1600 8GB CL9 kit VENGEANCE 48,30 Euro x2

    If this is purely meant for gaming

    Drop the CPU down to a i5 3570k
    Drop the mobo down to an asrock z77 extreme 4 or similar priced mobo. Unless you need the features on the sabertooth
    8 GB of Ram should be enough.

    With the money saved you could get a better GPU, such as a 670 or 7970

    But other than that it looks good.

    I agree with Zeara and also you should get the H100i instead of the H100 if you want to go with a AIO liquid cooler.

    750W PSU is massive overkill as well.
    Intel i5-3570K @ 4.7GHz | MSI Z77 Mpower | Noctua NH-D14 | Corsair Vengeance LP White 1.35V 8GB 1600MHz
    Gigabyte GTX 670 OC Windforce 3X @ 1372/7604MHz | Corsair Force GT 120GB | Silverstone Fortress FT02 | Corsair VX450

    CT256M4SSD2 - 256GB Crucial RealSSD M4, 2.5" SATA 6Gb/s SSD, MLC-Flash, 500Mb/s, Write 260Mb/s - £146.70
    CSSD-F240GB3-BK - 240GB Corsair Force Series 3, 2.5" SATA 6Gb/s, SandForce SSD, Read 550Mb/s, Write 520Mb/s, 85K IOPS - £146.69

    16GB more on the one you chose but double the write speed on the corsair, (which is the one that I have)
    Click part number for links, it is a UK site but you get the idea.

    I have been thinking about the I5 3570k aswell, I'm thinking that this computer should be useable for me the next 5 years atleast. H100I was what I were looking for but I didn't find it on the site where I collected the rest.

    Write speed doesnt matter all that much. All it does is increase install times a bit.
    I would stick with the M4, because it is reliable, and still a very good SSD even though it is 1-1,5 years old.
