Good day, gentleman. I am here on Romania with 14000 lei in hand (that’s $3775) and wish to build a powerful gaming PC that would run at 60 fps any modern game. I also want it to be as reliable as possible within the given budget, as I intend to leave it running 17 hours a day. Romanian prices are higher than those in the US. Here's my setup:

Case - Thermaltake Chaser MK-1 VN300M1W2N (755 lei)

PSU - Corsair Gaming Series CMPSU-600G (330 lei)

Motherboard - Gigabyte Z77-D3H (508 lei)

CPU - Intel Core i7 3770K (1325 lei)

RAM – 2 X Corsair DOMINATOR Platinum Series 16 GB (so there are 32 GB, 1458 lei)

System Drive - SSD Intel 520 Series 240 GB SATA 6 Gb/s 2.5 (1479 lei)

Storage Drives – 2 X Western Digital 2 TB RE4 (so there are 4 TB, 1812 lei)

Video Card - Sapphire Radeon HD 7970 OC 3GB DDR5 (2273 lei)

Blu-ray drive - LG Electronics WH12LS30 12X Blu-ray (400 lei)

LED Monitor – Samsung S24A450B LS24A450BWT (850 lei)

Keyboard - Logitech Wireless Illuminated Keyboard K800 (421 lei)

Mouse - Logitech Wireless Performance Mouse MX (300 lei)

Mousepad - SteelSeries 9HD Large Professional (114 lei)

Soundcard - ASUS PCI 5.1 Channel Sound Card XONAR_DG (125 lei)

Speakers - Harman Kardon Soundsticks III (797 lei)

CPU Cooler - Corsair Hydro Series H100 (457 lei)

Additional Fan - Antec Big Boy 200 (92 lei)

Thermal compund and cleaning kit - Arctic Silver 5 + ArctiClean 60ml Kit (100 + 35 lei)

Total: 13631 lei.

What do you think? Is this a good setup for my needs? Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.

if your going to be gaming then the 3570K or the 2500K would be more then enough!
if your not going to OC:
maybe a diffrent mobo?

save the money for a GTX690

2500K + GTX690 + 170$ z68 MOBO ................
should be enough for the next few years!

32GB of RAM is a real overkill. You will never need that (unless you run a lot of virtual machines in parallel). 8GB to 12GB would be plenty.
