i7 4790k & Gigabyte GTX 970---->First Build

So guys, I am going to build my first pc ever(and obviously need some help), with a budget of 1.000 € [maybe a little more if needed(+100€)] and I want to have the i7 4790k CPU and the Gigabyte GTX 970 GPU inside it. I really don't know what mobo to get, what cpu cooler, or the other things. Can you help me with some builds? (I get the OS, keyboard & mouse & headphones & monitor from extra money, so only the components with ~1.000€) Thanks :D

Location: Germany Reason: Gaming

An i7 would be a waste if all you are planning to do is gaming. An i5 is more than enough for you needs. You can put that money you save from opting for an i5 instead of an i7 to getting something like an SSD.

I chose this one just to stay inside the budget while also not sacrificing airflow. Anything from Corsair and NZXT should be good. NZXT Phantoms are my personal favorite from NZXT.

Can you add an CPU cooler and an optical drive please?.. Well, at least an CPU cooler, because I guess I can choose any Optical Drive I want..

The i5 6600 is a locked processor so the stock cooler should be fine. If you still wish an after market cooler, I recommend the Hyper 212 EVO or the Cryorig H7. In my honest opinion, optical drives are not worth anything anymore as you can do just about anything on a USB as you can on an optical drive. If you still want to get an optical drive, ask yourself this one question,"When WAS the last time I used a CD?"

And now comes a noobish question: Well... how do you install the windows?
