That motherboard is major overkill and 4GB RAM won't get you very far these days, you'll need 8GB minimum. You could get a motherboard that's $100 cheaper than the Sabertooth and then upgrade your video card to a Radeon 7870.

What's your budget? I could probably suggest a better system.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... is a motherboard that is 105 cheaper than the 1 you picked.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... is an 8GB ram kit that would suit you well.

That psu is a little heavy for a single gpu system, look at http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168..., which is $20 cheaper.

with the difference in the motherboard and psu you could get http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... which woudl be a much better choice.

Got damn that Asrock looks like a beast. Why is it so much cheaper?

It's more of an entry level board. it doesn't feature all of the advanced features of the Sabertooth board, not quite as high quality parts. The Sabertooth would probably overclock better than the ASRock, but most people do not need all that the Sabertooth offers. Also, the Sabertooth is overpriced in my opinion.

I'm just going to be doing some heavy gaming so i assume that the Asrock is better.

What Nvidia card would you recommend?

A 670 if you can get one.

Agree a 670 is a great card if you can afford it. however, that's going to eat most of your 800 budget. if you can't afford one, the 560 ti is a good card for a mid budget rig.

On an $800 build you won't be able to squeeze the 670 in there, without compromising on everything else. Some of the thriftier shoppers on this board might be able to build a build like that but you'll sacrifice on everything - case, PSU, CPU, motherboard - you name it. It's not worth it to me - I try to build balanced systems for your money. My typical $800 build would look something like this:

Case: Cooler Master HAF 912 - $59.99
PSU: Seasonic M12 II 620W - $89.99
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-Z77X-D3H - $149.99
CPU: 3.1GHz Intel Core i5-3450S - $199.99
RAM: G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 - $42.99
HD: 1TB Seagate Barracuda ST - $99.99
Optical: Lite On DVD Burner - $17.99
Video Card: Sapphire Radeon HD 6870 - $169.99 ($10.00 MIR)

Total: $825.92 - $10.00 MIR = $815.92
