Panda on PC

I asked you guys to build me a PC a while ago, but because of some personal problems I didn't have enough money to buy the parts.
However, I got a new job in August, so I'll have enough money to actually buy parts in September.
Please help me to build a new one :) (I heard that the GTX670 is outdated)

Budget: €1200,- ($1596,72)

I already have a monitor (iiyama ProLite E2473HDS 24 inch) and a keyboard from Dell.

Requirements:
I just want to play BF4 on it. I know that DICE didn't release system requirements.

WOOPWOOP! \o/

GPU: GTX 770 (new series, more awsumness): €366,-
CPU: Intel Core i5 4670K: €200,-
case (just a random case tbh): €30,-
Hard drive (2TB, 5400RPM): €95,-
SSD drive (128GB): €95,-
Mouse: Deathadder 2013 :> €65,-
power supply (750W: because overkill/potential upgrades): €80,-

^that'd be €930,- total'ish, with enough room to get a better case, harddrive, headset, etc

edit: or do you also need things like ram and the motherboard?
if you really start from scratch:
motherboard: €140,- <- because overkill
RAM (8GB): €45,-
^€1115,- total

NOTE: im no pc-expert, just slowly learning :3 some of these things, like the case and motherboard, are just searched randomly. Are the keyboard/monitor really the ONLY things you have atm? (if you have some things alrdy laying around, like a case/hard drive/RAM), then you could get a badass headset+soundcard instead
Some might come up with better things, but you should be able to get a very decent setup with 1200 bucks

I also have a €10 mouse :P
Oh, and I'm going to buy a Turtlebeach headset next week.

And that price is pretty awesome, I thought the 770 was going to be more expensive :o

Well, I still want to play BF3 on my PS3 this summer, and you can connect Turtlebeach headsets to a PS3 AND PC.
And buying 2 headsets is kinda stupid tbh.

5400rpm disks are shit, period. There's no reason to buy those no matter what you do. Avoid that at all cost. Get 7200rpm one, and Western Digital Black is a very good choice.
SSD: extremely easy to buy shit. It's worth investing here a little, it will pay back. I suggest Samsung 840 Pro (256GB version, smaller is a bit slower). It's basically the best thing you can get. Reviews are extremely positive.
RAM: not too expensive these days. 2x4GB is totally enough, only make sure it's at least 1600Mhz (won't hurt to buy 1866 or 2133 either).

Motherboard is a bit tricky, because Haswell (the newer Ivy Bridge) just got released, but it's so new I am not sure whether it wouldn't be better to get Ivy Bridge (that's Z77 chipset) to save a few bucks and know it's something tested for long enough there are no surprises. BIOSes are also mature enough on that platform.

Be careful with the i5 4670k...apparently the performance is only a small step up compared to.its predecesor which is a lot cheaper....also.if budget is limited always.keep upgrade potential in mind...rather save up on cpu/gpu and invest into better motherboard/psu/case.

Quoted from "Sym"

In other words, this game's code looks like it's written by 5 year old kiddo compared to how DICE did things with BF3.

@Cheapnub
I seriously recommend making that HDD a 7200RPM drive, 5400RPM just sucks and considering how cheap they are I see no point.
@Blue Panda
Also, a cheapo keyboard is just fine, but I still recommend a gaming mouse. Any basic gaming mouse with a good sensor will do. The Deathadder 2013 mouse is a good allround gaming mouse. If you want to be a super cheap person you can get the Logitech G100, bare mouse with no programmable keys but still has a decent sensor. But I'd seriously recommend something like the Deathadder 2013 or Logitech G400, having programmable buttons on your mouse is always useful.

Other than that, I think that list is just fine. Best gaming PC c:

lol funny how ppl claim 5400 RPM sucks without saying why, have one for recording and it can do 1080p without problems.
