    Question Computer help, Need to buy a new.

    Hey guys!
    So, I've been surfing all around the web to find a good computer. But I'm kinda a noob and I need some help.

    Budget
    +/- 2000 usd

    Resolution
    I think you mean on the monitor, full HD (1920*1080)

    Games / Settings Desired
    The elder scrolls Online (soon) on Ultra.
    Skyrim, ultra.
    ETS2, very high.

    Any other intensive software or special things you do (Frequent video encoding, 3D modeling, etc)
    3D modeling, never tried it before, but I guess I need it for my printer that soon will arrive ^^

    Country
    Norway, but theres no way I'll buy from a Norwegian store.

    Parts that can be reused
    None.

    Do you need an OS?
    Yes, W8.

    Do you need peripherals (e.g. monitor, mouse, keyboard, speakers, etc)?
    A mouse.

    Heres what I've been thinking on:
    -Intel Core i7-4770K
    -Corsair H100i CPU Cooler
    -Asus Z87-PRO Motherboard
    -Corsair Dominator Platinum 16GB DDR3-1600
    -WD Caviar Black 1TB
    -Asus GeForce GTX 780 Ti 3GB Video Card with liquid cooling
    -Asus Xonar DGX 24-bit 96 KHz Sound Card
    -Intel EXPI9301CTBLK 10/100/1000
    -Cooler Master Storm Stryker Full ToweR
    -Aerocool Shark 120mm Fan (3 pcs)
    -Corsair AX850
    -Asus DVD Writer
    -Microsoft Windows 8.1 - OEM (64-bit)

    Are there anything that I've forgotten to put in there, or anything that I need to change?

    Thanks
    -Daniel L.

    First of all,
    Your mobo has integrated intel lan, and you want to buy intel lan card, not sure why?
    Mobo also has integrated realtek audio, just a note if you want to save some cash.
    Corsair AX850 seems to be discontinued, according to newegg

    Few things:

    1) Lose the extra cards and change the board to something like the Z87-A - this will help you with
    2) Get an SSD with the money you save, something like the Samsung 840 EVO or the Crucial M500 120-128GB.
    3) Upgrade the clock speed on the RAM - although you won't really see any gaming performance, going up to 2133 MHz of slightly lower-grade RAM should give some gains in render performance (outside of Maya).

    What do you mean with Lose the extra cards?

    The separate sound card and LAN card are redundant - that saves you around $60.

    Nope, not really. The quality on the on-board is fine. If you're a serious audiophile, I'd look into an external DAC with signal isolation before a PCI/PCIe sound card.

    A 780 Ti for the games you listed at 1080p is extremely overkill mate. A 770 or 280x would do more than fine at ultra for those games.
    Steam Big Picture Mode - 4570 - GA-H87N - MSI R9-290 - 120 GB Samsung 840 EVO
    Corsair 250D - Philips 55 LED TV - Corsair RM 550 - Corsair Vengeance Pro 8GB

    4770K - EVGA 780 Ti SC- Corsair 350D - V700 - Gryphon Z87
    Corsair Vengeance Pro 8GB - Samsung 840 250GB - H60

    Please don't do that, you'll end up paying more in the end with taxes and import charges, not mention RMA is out of the question with the high delivery charges.
