I've been doing research and comparing a lot...
This is my build so far: http://de.pcpartpicker.com/p/CKMjMp
I'd like to drop the budget down to around 750-ish but have these (or better) specs.
Can anyone help me? or give some tips?

I used this site as a starting point. It gives excellent advice for building a balanced PC.
What are you planning on using the PC for?
mostly 'causal' gaming
You probably don't need that much RAM. You could get a better quality AMD GPU for about the same price. The PSU looks terrible. The DVD ROM is really needed as many forms of content is available online, but its your choice.
What GPU do you recommend? And the DVD reader is gone! ;-)
I'd recommend a r9 390 or r9 290x. It depends on how much you want to spend.

I'll give some reasoning behind my choices.
CPU - For "casual gaming" you won't see a performance change between 8 or 6 cores. You could even go down to 4, but 6 will give you some minor future-proofing.
CPU Cooler - It matches the blue theme and will help extend the life of your CPU. If you want to overclock, I would get a liquid cooler. This part can also be considered optional.
MOBO - Unchanged, you made a good choice for the price point.
RAM - You won't see a benefit between 16gb and 8gb for gaming. Speed difference between 1866 & 1600 are minor. A better CAS is preferable. You can always add another 8gb stick later.
SSD - A more reputable and used SSD for cheap.
HDD - Unchanged, you made a good choice for the price point.
GPU - Price disappeared for your option, picked a Gigabyte 750ti.
Case - Sleeker design and matches your build aesthetically.
PSU - Not so overkill, cheaper, and fully modular.
Final note, if you get rid of the CPU cooler or save a little more you could buy a 3gb or 4gb GPU.
That is one of the worst SSDs on the market. http://www.extremetech.com/extreme/184253-ssd-shadiness-kingston-and-pny-caught-bait-and-switching-cheaper-components-after-good-reviews
Wow, I never saw that. Glad I stick with Samsung.
Samsung is safe.
Other Kingston series are as well.
Brands I trust for SSDs are: Intel, Samsung, Adata, and (SOME) Kingston.
From what I've seen, Corsair is quite decent as well.
Crucial are by (me) a very reliable.
I completely forgot Crucial. I am an idiot.
You're right. I knew I was missing one.
Thanks for the info, I updated that list with a Corsair SSD.

I just found out that the CPU you picked sadly isn't really a big upgrade for what I have now... :(
It would be helpful if you could list what you already have.
Yeah, I guess that would be helpfull ;-)
I played around a bit myself...
Seems fine, I would recommend swapping that GPU for a Gigabyte, Asus, or MSI version. The Club 3D doesn't have great reviews with massive coil whine and DOA units being the most common complaints. A good rule of thumb is to put a large part of your budget into your GPU.
The Asus and MSI are red and won't match the blue RAM. You could easily pick a red ram color for the same price though.
Wow, thanks !!
