    Yeah it looks great and it's only around 20 euros more expensive and newer so it's going to last for a while probably. Thanks a lot :)

    Going to order the parts tomorrow finally. One last question on the case, do you think the 2 stock fans are enough or should I buy extra ones? I'm not going to overclock heavily so I don'y think it's needed but just to make sure

    I would buy extra fan for the side for better GPU cooling.

    Thanks again. Also if you had to choose, Gigabyte 770 or MSI 770 Lightning? Cause the Palit is out of stock

    If they are identical in price, clock speeds and coolers I would flip a coin. Otherwise, I'm leaning towards the MSI since it most likely has the aftermarket non-reference cooler design. So if it's the same price or a few bucks more than the gigabyte, then i would get it. Otherwise, flip a coin.

    Thanks for the advice. Although I ended up ordering the Gigabyte since from the reviews I found they're practically identical but the gigabyte overclocks better because of the windforce fans.
