-------------------------------
Clarification according to sticky:

Approximate Purchase Date: in 10-14 days
Budget Range: <€1000
System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, streaming, work, surfing
Are you buying a monitor: Yes. I want to try having two monitors.
[strike]Parts to Upgrade:[/strike]
Do you need to buy OS: No
Preferred Website(s) for Parts:Amazon, German/Austrian retailers, but generally more interested in parts and compatibility than prices at this point.
Location: Austria + South Germany (I don't mind driving an hour or two to get it €100 cheaper)
Parts Preferences: None.
Overclocking: No.
SLI or Crossfire: Probably not.
Your Monitor Resolution: 1920x1080
Additional Comments: I'd prefer to keep it simple and have as little lighting as possible. Preferably no water cooling. Not sure if stock coolers are good enough.
And Most Importantly, Why Are You Upgrading: My current PC is 6 years old now and has trouble keeping up with most games.

Is anything in this build superfluous or replaceable by a better component at a similar price? Any compatibility issues?

I don't really plan on overclocking, but just for future reference, how could I tell how well a motherboard can handle overclocking?
 


1. Find a motherboard that has been reviewed by a professional reviewer.
2. See how well others have overclocked it by looking on pcpartpicker
3. Do they use good heatsinks?
4. Dive deep into technical stuff.

Thank you for the answer. Was hoping that other people would also chip in since it's my first real PC build and I want to make sure I get it right.
