So I'm building my first computer and I've got a case and PSU already, but I'm not completely sure on what else I should pick. I'm a gamer and I'm hoping to do some recording in the future. I'm not really sure on the budget since a friend is paying for it, but I think $1500-$2000 might be the cap on it.
I'm kinda hoping for a red theme.

About the Sabertooth Z77, a lot of reviews on it seem pretty bad. Can can anyone verify if its worth it?
