1: PSU is way too big. Get a 600-650w instead.
2: Sabertooth is awesome, but get a cheaper motherboard instead.
3: Get 1600MHz RAM.
4: If you live near a Microcenter, these parts are really cheap over there.
5: These changes will allow you to get an i5-3570K w/o going over budget.

750watt is a nice size if you will go with the second HD7870 later.

sorry for the late reply and thanks for the fast reply. actually i wanted to go to amd because the intel is way more expensive compare to amd parts. i was in a tight budget and compared the amd and intel. amd is way cheaper so i turn to amd. is there any difference between 1600mhz and 1866mhz?

Nothing noticeable, slightly faster with the 1866.

Wait for the deals and then buy, nothing will get more expensive next week. You will be able to save some.
