2nd Gaming build ever - 1st build was back in 2008 9800GTX triple sli - oh those days

Hello all from Germany.

I just got here and decided it was time to build a gaming pc for when i'm not travelling around europe. I went out and tried to buy a few computer parts on the economy and the prices were just crazy. I did end up with a MS-Tech hornet case that seems to be only available in europe. Here it is - http://www.ms-tech.de/eng/index.php/product/detail/pdcid/84/pdid/257

I already have the software and 120hz 1080 monitor, etc etc

Could I save money somewhere? I want to stick with the CPU, but i'm open to all other suggestions. I do plan to sli down the road when the 780gtx gets super cheap.

I mainly play BF4, skyrim and GTA

Dumb the SSD. Take a R9 290 instead of the 780. Dump the CPU cooler(Unless your OCing from the word go). But 1st two are easy $$ savers.

Thats what I get for using gpuboss for a review. Found Anandtech's review to show me the r9 290 is better. Then when the prices drop the r9 290 in crossfire should kick ***.

So hard to lose dat boot and 64 player BF4 map load time by losing SSD. :(

I also dont plan to overclock. 4 Ghz should be good enough for a long time. but I want the option to be available

Agree on the SSD but you said $$ save so :P, also the r9 290 is already cheaper than the gtx you had :)

I also remembered that there is a laptop hardrive sitting around. 7200rpm 1 TB so dont need a 3.5
