That case doesn't come with a PSU. And if it did you shouldn't go for it. For the components you selected I would buy something between 500-600W for under 100$. Seasonic and Corsair are good brands but it always comes down to specific models.

and for the gpu... 660 is good enough for an allrounder pc? the pc will only be a workstation
would you swap something in the two setups?
the power supply looks good and has a good price

thank you

Neither is optimal in my opinion. If the PC is only a workstation and not meant for games, then a 660 is a smarter choice than the much more expensive 760 that won't give you any real advantage in most 3D applications.

so what would you recommend me?

should the link show me what you would recommend? if that is the case then it didn't work because it doesn't show specific hardware parts. it just says that i have to choose differnet parts.
sorry its a bit difficult for me to explain what i mean, because I'm german an my english is not the best :/

ahh okay. now it suddenly worked.
so this is the setup you would recommend?
thats exactly in my price range
is there something else i should pay special attention for in terms of hardware?

thank you

Yes that's what I recommend. I think it's the best balance between power and future proof-ness within your budget.

Things to pay attention...

I would stay away from cases that ship with their own power supply. They tend to be low quality. The power supply is a important part of your computer, even if it's often neglected.

I wouldn't spend more than 150-175$ on a graphics card if you're not going to play games (and even if you did, the 660 is pretty good).

It's pretty easy these days to build a PC, but breaking something because you didn't know about a certain detail is frustrating. If you're not confident, pay the little extra to get the parts put together by someone experienced.

I can't think of anything else. I'm sure you'll do just fine.

thank you very much this helped me a lot.
I dont plan to build the computer myself. my neighbor is much more experienced than me. so i let him do this job

the only thing left i have to do some research on is a good monitor

thank you very much

another question

Would it increase the quality of the computer drastically if I would wait a few month to collect some extra cash to use a nvidia quadro 2000 instead of the 660? or is this not necessary?

I recommend you read some topics posted recently. The question of Quadro vs GeForce has been asked a lot. Short answer for your case is no, it won't be worth it.

Okay thank you.

I guess I`ll stick to the cheaper gpu then
