Watch out. You're motherboard doesn't support your processor you picked out:

Processor:
Intel Core i5-4440 - 3.1GHz - Socket 1150 Quad-core, includes cooler

Motherboard:
MSI H61M-P20 (G3) - Socket 1155 - Micro-ATX Intel H61, 2xDDR3, SATA300 / USB2.0

You need a Socket 1150 motherboard for that processor. Other than that it looks like a solid build.

Switched that to the ASUS H81M-PLUS - Socket 1150 - Micro-ATX

Total: €798.47


Honestly, I'm not sure it's worth saving the €120 in case I mess something up.
