I am planning to build my first computer. I am a bit nervous, just because of the amount of money and the components can be a bit delicate at times. I figure I will give you an idea of the use and what I hope to get out of this. I want to be able to play games like Skyrim at max settings (or close to) and I am hoping the computer will last for a few years with minimal upgrades (mainly a new card down the line and maybe buying a better power supply). Let me know if there is anything that you would change to improve, or to take away unnecessary bloating.
Honestly, you don't need the Sabertooth, and it really isn't that great of a board for the price. It's been shown that the Sabertooth can be out performed by the much cheaper Asrock Extreme6 Z77. And to be honest, no one will notice the difference from the Asrock Extreme3 Gen3 Z68 to a $225 board. Even in overclocking the difference isn't large enough to justify a $100 increase. Plus the Z68 Extreme3 Gen3 from Asrock has all the features of Z77 but at a lower price anyways. Gen3 performs the same as PCI 3.0 in Z77 and the USB 3.0 is still the same.
