CPU: i7 2600k stock (no need for OC as the rest of the system is not that fast)

CPU COOLER: Thermalright Silver Arrow (both fans at very low RPM)

Motherboard: MSI P67A-C45

RAM: 8 GB Kingston 1600Mhz CL9 (more than enough RAM)

GPU: Nvidia MSI GTX 570 Power Edition (would have bought a 680 but in my country the prices for computer components are very, VERY high)

HDD: 1x200Gb WD (for windows and backup files) and 2x750Gb WD (for storage)

PSU: Chieftek 650W bronze (kinda old, but then again, I don't need a better one ... even for a GTX 680 I probably wouldn't need a better one)

Display: 24" LG 1920x1080 W2453V

Case: Fractal Design Arc Midi (with 4x 140mm fractal design fans)

Other: speakers (aiwa 2.0) , mouse (a4 tech) , keyboard (saitek eclipse) , WebCam (logitech C270)


Country: Romania (in worst case I would be happy to pay the delivery cost myself should I be chosen :) )


The only things I would need would be: a better GPU, but only a GTX680 would make sense as an upgrade from what i have now (such as MSI Lightning or Asus DirectCU II) or an SSD as my system is pretty slow and when i access the HDD's that have lots of files on them the system freezez for 2-3 sec before showing the contents of the HDD (a 90Gb or 120Gb SSD would be best - Corsair Force Series GT or Kingston HyperX 3k)
