Get Gigabyte GA-Z87X-UD4H or ASUS Sabertooth Z87. Also ASRock Z87 Extreme4 is good Motherboards

Definitely no on the Sabertooth. It's too expensive, and they use the same horrible plastic armor that they did on the Z77 model, which does nothing but trap heat and recirculate it. Get the Gigabyte or the Asrock Z87 Extreme 6 instead.

It would be a good motherboard if it weren't for the high price tag and the ridiculous thermal armor, which is nothing more than a gimmick. You can definitely get better boards for less money.

Your 660 will not preform well with that i7. Get a GTX 770 instead.
MSI gaming Z87 MOBO FTW BRO!

8GB of RAM in gaming is enough. More would be better in the future use.

I agree there, spend less on the CPU and more on the GPU.

850W is overkill for a single GPU. If you're planning to add a second one later on then it's fine, otherwise 600W is more than sufficient enough.

For gaming you don't need the i7, better would be to put that money elsewhere. What's the max budget you're willing to spend?

You dont need a GAMING pc. when you say GAMING pc WE think of games like FARCRY 3 or BF4 on MAXEDOUT Settings. 3D Games. Not online gambling.

You need maybe something like this:
