Well, you'll need that GPU before you start gaming on it.
With no budgetary constraints, add a 256GB Crucial M4 or Samsung 840 Pro SSD.

Get an ASRock Z77 Extreme4 or ASUS P8Z77-V motherboard, Sabertooth is quite overpriced for the features it offers.

Don't purchase the Sabertooth (if you do and it overheats don't say we didn't warn you) and lose the H80 for a Noctua U9B.

What is the budget here?

It seems to me that a motherboard with a five year warranty shouldn't be too prone to overheating, but I agree that it's an expensive board.
The ASRock Extreme6 has better VRMs than the Extreme4; that's probably the one I'd choose.

It's because that thermal armor is designed to prevent heat. It actually traps it. And then to remedy the situation Asus included two cheap plastic 80mm fans that only circulate the hot air underneath.

Unless you are going for some mad overclock, the Extreme4 will be fine. If you want to push it, ya get the 6 (or if you need firewire or the like).
