I7 not necessary for gaming, 16gb not necessary for gaming, 8gb 1600mhz is perfect. Better motherboards than the sabertooth.

A budget would be nice so I can work something better out, also what country.

Hey! This is really good build. Bit over the budget but if you can go this much over then it is really good buy now.

Samsung PRO is maybe bit faster but this fast enough for normal usage. You will not notice diffrence with two SSD when you use them. Ang for gaming that last bit of speed is not really needed.

Pretty similar to Axl, but with better components, you can see that in the price.
Better motherboard, way better gpu, better cpu cooler for higher overclocks.
