Hello, my name is Jaan and i would like to buy a new computer.

Since i'll buy from a local computer store: www.arvutikeskus.ee . The prices may be different, usually a bit higher. So ill just include the manufacturers links and price in "Arvutikeskus".
Id like some advice, and if you know enough about it, some explaination why is the item you chose better.

Prices are in euros, not pounds or dollars.
So far ive chosen these pieces:

CPU(211€): http://ark.intel.com/products/65520/Intel-Core-i5-3570K-Processor-6M-Cache-up-to-3_80-GHz
MoBo(124€): http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=4144#ov
or(142.25€): http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=4168#ov
or(146.30€): another version of g1 sniper m3, i do not understand what is the difference between these 2 versions, maybe someone smarter could explain me: http://arvutikeskus.ee/est/TOOTEKATALOOG/ARVUTIKOMPONENDID-Emaplaadid-LGA-1155-emaplaadid/Gigabyte-GA-G1-SNIPER-M3-Z77-DualDDR3-1600-SATA3-RAID-HDMI-GBLAN-mATX-167734
GPU(369€): http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=4102#ov
However i would like to save some money on it, maybe theres something cheaper, with about the same FPS?
Storage(165€): i was thinking about buying a 256gb SSD at the moment, and add some 1 or 2TB HDD later, seems to be a good idea?: http://www.kingston.com/us/ssd/v#sv200s3 its some kind of kit at "Arvutikeskus": http://arvutikeskus.ee/est/TOOTEKATALOOG/ARVUTIKOMPONENDID-Kovakettad-HDD-SSD/Kingston-SSD-V200-256GB-SATA3-25-Upgrade-Bundle-Kit-169581
ODD(14.50€): http://www.samsungodd.com/eng/Products/Spec/spec.asp?functionvalue=view&parent_idx=4133&level_idx=4504
RAM(75€): The 2 pack version: http://gskill.com/products.php?index=493
or1/2 of these(33€/66€: http://gskill.com/products.php?index=574
Case(74€): http://www.zalman.com/global/product/Product_Read.php?Idx=476 , i guess theres nothing special about the case, but i just like the looks of it.
PSU: Haven't chosen 1 yet, but im looking at these: http://www.corsair.com/en/power-supply-units/gs-series-power-supply-units/gs-series-gs700-80-plus-bronze-certified-power-supply.html or the 800W version of it.
: http://www.corsair.com/power-supply-units/tx-series-power-supply-units/enthusiast-series-tx750-v2-80-plus-bronze-certified-750-watt-high-performance-power-supply.html
: http://www.seasonicusa.com/M12II-Bronze-650-750-850.htm im looking at the 750W version here.
CPU cooler(30€): http://www.coolermaster-usa.com/product.php?product_id=3053
or sorry, its DK: http://www.alpenfoehn.de/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=190%3Atriglav&catid=53&Itemid=44&lang=de

Parts that doesn't go inside the case:

Monitor(163€): http://www.lg.com/au/it-monitors/lg-IPS235P-BN-led-lcd-monitor
Keyboard(64€): All of the versions are at 64€ but which one is best?: http://www.roccat.org/Products/Gaming-Keyboards/ROCCAT-Isku/
Mouse(72€): http://www.roccat.org/Products/Gaming-Mice/ROCCAT-Kone-XTD/
or(55.2€): http://www.roccat.org/Products/Gaming-Mice/ROCCAT-Kone-Pure/
or(75€?): http://www.razerzone.com/gaming-mice/razer-taipan , this is not on sale yet, but im assuming the price will be about the same as it is for the first mouse.
Headset: Was looking at steelseries, but since im probably getting 2 roccat products already, why not headset aswell:
or not.. the ones i like are too expensive. So it will probably be steelseries: http://steelseries.com/products/audio/steelseries-5hv2
Speakers(95€): http://www.techbuy.com.au/p/134393/SPEAKERS_2-SPEAKER_SYSTEMS/Microlab/SOLO5C.asp didn't find them on manufacturers page.
Mousepad(15€): Could go with any similiar mat from other manufacturers, but i like the sides of it, others don't have that stitching or W/E it is on the sides, so they might separate (happened with my steelseries one).

Thats about it, looking forward to your answers.
And please, if you know enough about the 2 products, tell me what makes the one you suggested better.
About the Monitor, Mouse, etc. if anyone has those i linked before, tell me how they feel like and what are the positives/negatives about them.

Have a nice day!... or night, since its 3AM here. ~ Jaan!
