Ok so i want to know what you guys think about this pc and are there any problems you can see and an estimation on price that i should pay. I live in Ireland and kind of limited towards where i can buy parts, so i have not decided on where to buy stuff yet.

Specs
CPU: Intel Core i7-3770 3.4GHz Quad-Core Processor
CPU: Cooler Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus 76.8 CFM Sleeve Bearing CPU Cooler
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD5H ATX LGA1155 Motherboard
Memory Corsair: Dominator 32GB (4 x 8GB) DDR3-1600 Memory
Hard Drive: Western Digital Caviar Black 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive
Video Card: Gigabyte GeForce GTX 680 2GB Video Card
Power Supply: CoolMax 1000W 80 PLUS Bronze Certified ATX12V / EPS12V Power Supply

Additional details: I have a price range of €1000 so far i have been able to find all these parts for around that. I did not include case or any of that stuff because i already have them.

Welcome to the forums! I hope you enjoy building computers as much as we do.

Several things (I apologize, it's late so I have to make this quick):
  • Instead of the 3770, check out the 4670 or even the 4570 (NOTE: these are different sockets, so you'll have to change the motherboard to a socket 1150)
  • 32 GB is overkill (WAY overkill), especially for a 1000 euro build. 8GB typically is enough for most people's needs
  • Instead of the 680, check out the 770 gtx -newer generation; same performance, cheaper price
  • 1000W PSU is overkill too. A good brand (Corsair, OCZ, Seasonic :)) 650W PSU should be fine.

Hope this helps.

And I took the liberty of compiling a list, just because (this is actually easier than I thought): http://de.pcpartpicker.com/p/1lrWk . This is based from Germany since I don't know where you are and I just picked an EU country. This includes and SSD and the pricing including shipping is €1063.58. If you take out the SSD it'll be in your budget.
