If you drop to 8GB instead of 16GB, a cheaper motherboard (why the sabertooth?), i5-3570K instead of i7-3770K (for gaming, an i5 is still the better choice), I'm positive you could get a higher end card like the GTX 780 or 2 GTX 670s. But, it's your call, I'm just giving out suggestions and what could be a better PC for gaming.

Why not get a gtx 760 instead of the gtx 660ti???
It is much faster and almost 50$ cheaper..

I took some of your suggestions! thank you by the way! I changed the Graphics card, CPU, mother board and i also added a CPU heatsink! so this is what i went with:

Graphics Card: ASUS GTX760-DC2OC-2GD5 GeForce GTX 760 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

CPU: Intel Core i5-3570K Ivy Bridge 3.4GHz (3.8GHz Turbo) LGA 1155 77W Quad-Core Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 4000

MotherBoard: ASUS P8Z77-V LK LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard with UEFI BIOS

Heat Sink: COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 Plus RR-B10-212P-G1 "Heatpipe Direct Contact" Long Life Sleeve 120mm CPU Cooler

If you think that is a better setup that would be Awesome. Again if anything isn't compatible with each other please let me know, such as the graphics card and mother board and if the graphics card will fit in the case. Thank you for for help!

^ These parts are all compatible. Like I said, why not aim for a higher end card? True, the GTX 760 is faster than the 660ti but with the money you saved by changing the parts above, I'm certain you could get a higher end card like the Radeon 7970 or GTX 770.
