just was fiddling around with partpicker and got this:
http://pcpartpicker.com/p/uVPM

im wondering if the cpu and mobo truly are great combination and if i can overclock this cpu easily?
its only 630 euros so i might even buy these parts :D

oh and it says: "Gigabyte GA-990FXA-UD3 ATX AM3+ Motherboard has an onboard USB 3.0 header, but the DIYPC DIY-5823 B/S (Black/Silver) ATX Mid Tower Case does not have front panel USB 3.0 ports." Should i change something in there? i cant find a case that has front 3.0 usb ports?

PSU and case is crap, change the PSU to an XFX, change the case to something that is decently rated on PCPP.

What dednoob said and the cooler is garbage and not worth spending on over the stock one.

Not with that cooler, no, but otherwise they are good. You can overclock it quite easily but you are apparently new to this so I recommend being cautious. It's going to be quite a bit more unless you live in the US and use Euros as the currency for some weird reason.

You don't have to, USB 3.0 front ports don't really matter at all as you can use it from the back of your case.

Thats fairly bad:

the 8350 is just a factory overclock of the 8320 and its not worth the extra, there is no point in paying for the 990FX motherboards the 970 are fine, the cooler is about as good as stock if not worse, the PSU is crap, the case is crap, the RAM is overpriced and the SSD is old slower and more expensive than modern units like the Samsung 840

This is much better

Well then it's going to cost at least 800€ if you buy it from Finnish stores:

And that's without the case and optical drive.

Yeah, I've ordered some stuff from Germany a few times as the US seems to be too much of a hassle and I've thought that the posts are more expensive. Mistä tilasit?
