I didn't informed you, I'm probably buying this case: Thermaltake VP300A5W2N ATX Mid Tower Case not the Antec.

So many thanks!

OK I have a little bit more money and instead of the GTX 760 I like to buy a GTX 770 - would that also run under that mainboard (Asrock 970 Extreme 4)? And the GTX 770 is better than the GTX 760, correct?

Gday.
Yes to both questions. There are quite a few reviews where the 760 is included in benchmarks, like the one below but you will need to search for a review with a direct comparison.

I'm a ilttle bit worried now, because I read some articles ( i bought the Hardware already!) can it be that my CPU (AMD Phenom II X4 940) slows the GPU down that i can not play Bf 4 in high - ultra?

You should be able to play most games on high setting, you may not reach ultra. Regardless of Hardware, all gaming rigs have to be tuned.
You need to have the min amount of background processing going on. Start with the native resolution of your monitor and basic settings of the GPU, then slowly up the setting of the GPU until you reach acceptable fps and close to 100% CPU usage Then start overclocking the CPU, You should be able to reach 3.4 to 3.5GHz, on air with your 940, then you have to settle on, better quality or fps.> https://www.google.c...7,d.bmk&cad=rjt

When your build is up and running, your best bet is to join some forums for overclocking or gaming.

It's no problem for me upgrading my CPU (better say I like to do that). In my mainboard there is a AM 3+ socket - so this processor should be good: AMD FX 8350 Octa-Core Prozessor ? What's your opinion? Also you should know that I'm not a really BIG BIG Gamer, only play sometimes and I don't want to upgrade my PC the next 2-3 years. Or is the FX 9370 better?

So my configuration:

  • AMD FX 8350 Octa-Core Processor
  • ASUS GeForce GTX 770
  • 8 GB DDR 3 (currently 1033 MHZ, but will be upgraded to 1600 GHZ)
  • 256 GB SSD + 1 TB HDD
  • Asrock 970 Extreme 4
Is this configuration good for High-Ultra Settings?

After some benchmarks test and youtube videos it should be work (FPS 50- 100)

EDIT:
Sorry currently I have Phenom II X4 945 not the X4 940!

Unless my eyesight is playing up I do not see the FX 8320 on the CPU support list only the 8300 which runs at 3300MHz.

The 4350 runs at 4200MHz whereas the 6350 runs at 3900MHz, it does however have 2MBx3 of L2 cache as opposed to the 2MBx2 L2 Cache of the FX 4350, you may not notice the difference with the latter but the extra MHz I feel you will appreciate.

Do you think that I can play games on Ultra - High? I noticed I can play now BF3 on High - Ultra (with a HD 6870 - FPS 33 - 56) - pretty weird because some time ago I was only able to play on middle settings (FPS 30- 45).
