    Would this be a good option or does someone spot a weakness?:

    Case: Sharkoon TG5 ATX
    MoBo: Gigabyte B360M Aorus Gaming 3 mATX DDR4 USB 3.1 SATA600 M2
    CPU: i5 8600
    GPU: Gigabyte Nvidia Geforce GTX 1070ti
    RAM:Cruzial 16GB 2666mhz or 2400mhz (dont know yet what they use)
    SSD: 250GB samsung M2 PCIe 960 EVO
    HDD: Toshiba 1TB SATA600 7200rpm 32MB
    PowerSuply: Coolermaster G750M
    CPU Cooler: Coolermaster Hyper 412
    As others have mentioned you could go to a i5-8400 CPU which would allow you to go cheaper on MOBO, such as a H370 (you won't need the z370 overclock). If you get a MOBO with 4 ram slots you could buy 8gb(2x4) now and add 8gb more later when/if you need it. You could cut the m.2 down to 128gb seen as you going with a 1TB sata drive anyways.

    Are you running 144hz (144FPS max) monitor currently, is it 4K? If you are running 60hz @ 1080p you will be able to run a gtx 1060 even however, the general issue with PC gaming seems to be GPU constraints so in light of this I would buy the best GPU you can buy and skimp on everything else.

    You should really check out PCpartPicker.com it finds the cheapest retailers for you. They offer it for a couple different EU zones. I'm building a very similar build and my current price is about $900 euro (in Canadian dollars).

    Oh and you should build the PC yourself, you can save a bunch of money and buy better gear. It is truly easy to assemble and youtube is your friend. The only catch is doing the analysis up front to ensure all of the parts will play nice together. PC part picker does this work for you.

    Thanks for your input!

    EDIT: I used pcpartpicker and some other sites to see if it is much cheaper to build myself, but the difference between the
    quotation of the builder site and getting all components for the lowest price myself was.....11 euro. So I think I am better of leaving it to the pro's, then my warranty is in one place, and I am sure everything is checked and working.

    Nonetheless all input in this thread was highly appreciated, I tryd to listen to most of it and learned a lot, thanks to you all!!
