Please use the sticky in the first page saying "How to ask for build advice."

Just a quick run down of your build.
FX 4100 = not a bad choice but you can do way better.
The FX 4100 will not work with the MoBo you chose. Either get a MoBo with an AM3+ socket or get an lga 1155 intel processor.

1: get a i5 3570k. it is faster
2:just get something like a antec 302 instead
3:get a xfx 750w since it is cheaper for the same thing
4:: get the asrock extreme4 since it is much cheaper and has the same features as the sabertooth
5:with the money saved, get a 7850
