    Check my profile. I spent $1100 US on mine and it's a beast. I am upgrading my mobo to a Asus Sabertooth 990fx board. That's the only thing I'm changing. Not impressed with my current board. I used Newegg for everything. I'm sure some of our EU members can give you websites that compare in savings to Newegg. They do ship international though. I would suggest that you get something other than an Antec box. I say this because you have to do a lot of cable management for the box, and if you don't know what you are doing then you can restrict airflow. Coolermaster makes extremely good cases with easy cable management systems. Good luck on your build, and if you have any questions, please post so we can help you.

    My 560s are Nvidia... To each his own though with CPUs. Your taste is what best fits you.

    here are some ideas:

    Processor:
    Intel Core i5-2500 Sandy Bridge 3.3GHz (3.7GHz Turbo Boost) 4 x 256KB L2 Cache 6MB L3 Cache LGA 1155 95W Quad-Core Desktop Processor BX80623I52500
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819115073

    Motherboard:
    ASRock Z68 EXTREME4 GEN3 LGA 1155 Intel Z68 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813157264

    Memory:
    G.SKILL Ripjaws X + Turbulence II Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2133 (PC3 17000) Desktop Memory Model F3-17000CL9D-8GBXLD
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231435

    Video Card:
    ASUS ENGTX560 DCII OC/2DI/1GD5 GeForce GTX 560 (Fermi) 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814121446

    Sound Card:
    Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Titanium Fatal1ty Professional 70SB088600002 7.1 Channels 24-bit 96KHz PCI Express x1 Interface Sound Card
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16829102019

    You should be able to power all this with your psu you already have and use the same case. This build turned out to be $899.95 on newegg. There might be a little room for another video card or if you need a HD.

    Why get a sound card? Spend the money on a decent headset!

    Sound Card > Headset

    You're better off getting a really good stereo headset with a broad sound stage and better quality. Most "surround sound" headsets are overpriced, horrendous quality, and the actual directional properties of the sound do not outweigh the money spent.
