Q u o t e: Alright, after an extensive research I did these last days, my main concern is now wondering if everything would fit in a tower and run without any problems with the given components below, if they are interchangeable on the proper AMD or Intel motherboards.
I am also worried about case size, if everything fits in there, not only physically, but also if it has the right number of connectors for those PSU and MB.
On mainboard, CPU, RAM and PSU i already gave you advice and prices in posts above. When you decide to buy new components don't go with anything below or older than that. You get more performance with current hardware for the same prices you listed and very likely less.
Interchangeability: don't worry, beside the CPU's everything is interchangeable.
Number of connectors: that PSU has more than you need.
On GFX cards: at a price below 200 € the GTX 460 is the chip to go for.
Case: a medium sized tower is fine, just make sure it comes with at least two fans, one in front and one in rear plus - if you don't want them to annoy you with too much noise - check they are at least 120mm in size. My personal preference in cases are those fully made of aluminium to further spread heat towards the outside. Good cases are made by Cooler Master or Lian Li.
