Oh wow :o! They put in some very realistic looking ravens!

On a more serious note, a real ingame screenshot would be much appreciated ^_^

I left in the GPU and CPU you wanted. Changed the PSU to a fully modular one. (I think it's worth the $20 for a modular PSU. If you don't, then you can swap it out!) Case is the $50 classic gamer case. You can obviously sub any case you want that you like the looks of it. Buy more fans if it doesn't have enough fans. I wasn't sure why you had 12gb RAM, but the mobo I selected is dual-channel, so I used 2 sets of dual channel RAM for a total of 16gb. You could start at 8gb and buy more later. I included a cheapie DVD/CD drive and an aftermarket cooler. No reason to pay the extra for a K CPU and a Z77 mobo if you aren't going to OC a bit.

Sorry, I'm not Dutch and don't speak/read Dutch. Even with Google translating that site for me, it's difficult for me to find the right parts.

Sorry, didn't realise the site was hard to navigate if you're not dutch =)
Thanks for the tips! I'll update the PSU and MoBo to and I'll look into the case, upgraded SSD and aftermarket cooler

the i5-3570K is technically better, since i'ts ivy bridge, (pci3.0, however that won't matter for you if you use the 560TI), but I dont' think it will make too much of a difference.

560Ti is a great card, and will run GW easily,(some cheaper AMD cards do this as well though)

A 60g SSD will probably NOT hold your OS and GW2.

8gb RAM is more than sufficient

I don't think you'll need Watercooling over a $30 Coolmerster Evo or Plus, Unless you get crazy with your OC'ing.

I'm a huge fan of Antec cases, if you're short on cash, the 300 is great, or spring for the 900 or 1200

Thanks for the tips!
I'll update the RAM to 8 GB and I'll just get the i5-3570k as prices don't really differ all that much between the two and it'll be the better choice if I ever wish to upgrade my system (at least, if I'm reading your post correctly XD)

Like I said above I'll look into the upgraded SSD (128GB), I guess that would be able to hold both.
And thanks for the case tip ;)

'Near future rig specs'

I'm a noob too, but It will max out the settings for you.
Ican tell, cause pretty much everything you have there is better than what they recommended me to play on max settings ;)

Allright thanks!

So, could someone help make me a list (like baels did before), only this time including a new motherboard. I guess this gives a lot of new options and I've tried browsing through parts myzelf, but I have literaly no clue what I'm looking for!

I'll need a new CPU, Graphics card, motherboard and power supply. These new component need to make me able to play GW2 on m,ax settings (without any problems) on 1440x900 resolution and be low-budget (below €500), though still decent.
