  1. Ok, from what I see, No Overclock, and a gaming pc. Here's what I recommend:

    1) CPU : Change to i5-3550. No need for 'k' series if no overclocking.
    2) Chasis: Too expensive, I think there's better value for money out there.
    3) Mobo: Sabretooth is pretty bad value for money. You can get a gigabyte/Asrock for half the price and same performance.
    4) Graphics: 680 is again, bad value for money. Go for 670 or Radeon 7870.
    5) Cooler: You can get a cheaper cooler if not planning to overclock.
    6) RAM Cooler: Not needed for 1600MHz.
