    I'm looking to build a new computer, case only, that can satisfy all my gaming and blackhatter needs, I'm looking for something that I can play games like Crysis and all the newcomming games until years end at maximum perfomance and resolution.

    Is it possible to satisfy my needs for ?500?

    I plan on buying:
    Board+CPU+Cooler (AMD or Intel?)
    Ram (how many Gbs, 4Gbs/6Gbs?)
    Graphics Card(Nvidia GT260 is the best option right?)
    Power Supply (I'm the blinds here, I need something with some power, since mine current 800W supply is already working well over it's capability, mainly because all my HDDs)


    If I safe enough money in the above items I still plan on buying:

    A new Case, any recommendations, I have 10 HDD, so I need something big.

    A new wireless keyboard and mouse optimized for gaming, again, recommendations?

    And lastly, a new sound card, I currently have a Sound Blaster X-Fi Extreme Audio, is it outdated or is it still a good card nowadays?

    Thanks in Advance

    Built it with parts from newegg, and you can get a pretty rediculous computer for $1000.

    So since your currency is twice mine, probably some around that would do. Then again, I wonder what shipping is from newegg to europe.
