Question Building my first computer!

Hello!

I am wordering if I should buy a new computer or build one, This one will not last long...

I have been researching and building one would be cheapest.

I have never done it before, so I need help!
I started with a i5 3750k with a ASrock z77 pro4, but it would be WAY over my budget!

I am from Denmark, so the hardware cost more compared to some countries.
Overall price: 4020 DKK / 696.89916 USD
Max price: 750 USD

Motherboard: ASRock 970 Extreme3 (ASRock > 970 Extreme3)

APU: AMD Fusion A-Series A8-3870K Quad 3.0GHz HD6550D (AMD A8-3870K Review | bit-tech.net)

RAM: 2x Corsair DDR3 PC1600 4GB CL9 VENGEANCE

HDD: Seagate Barracuda 1TB SATA6 64MB 7200RPM (Amazon.com: Seagate Barracuda 7200 1 TB 7200RPM SATA 6 Gb/s NCQ 64MB Cache 3.5-Inch Internal Bare Drive ST1000DM003: Electronics)

Coolor: Arctic Freezer A30 Coolor AM2+/AM3+/FM1/FM2

Case: Enermax Staray Gaming Midi Tower

Power supply: Corsair CX Series 430W 430CX

DVD Driver: LG BH10LS38 BR-RW Blu-ray SATA

Network adapter: TRENDnet TEW-643PI Wireless N 300Mbit PCI


1) Do I need a Graphics Card (example Club 3D Radeon PCI-HD6670 1GB DDR3) (Radeon HD 6670 - Graphic solutions GeForce & Radeon), or is the APU good enougth?

2) Is there a good or cheaper website there I can buy it all together and make them build it?

3) Did I miss something important?

Thanks!

Whats the computer for? If its for gaming the CPU or APU as you call it won't be nearly good enough. Just need more info on what you are using it for.

But If you are looking to save money, you should def do it yourself.

I am not sure if they deliver there but I would try Newegg. Pretty sure anyone would back me on that..
