What is this build for? The Sabertooth is totally not worth it at all.

well its going to be for entertainment and gaming, why do you say that?

Because I would skip the i7 and go with the i5 to save money. Also, if you plan to overclock, you are going to need a CPU cooler.

I would also like to recommend a 7970 over the 670.

The Sabertooth is not worth it, as it...well...just really isnt. It costs alot more for no added features.

You don't need 16GB of RAM for gaming as well.

Yeah, an i5-3570k, $150 motherboard, 670 / 7970, and 8GB of ram will easily max out anything you want. What resolution is your monitor?

The Sabertooth is a marketing gimmick. It's really just a mid-end motherboard with the "armor" over it. (The armor is just for looks, and actually makes the board a bit hotter.)

Thanks for helping, well im planning to get a 24inch or 27 inch monitor, but i dont know what mobo brand pick and what model, also im picking h100i corsair water cooling for the processor

The H100 is too expensive for what it offers. You would be better off with a Noctua NH-D14

its supposed to be one of the best cpu cooler, although ive heard noctua is great too

Best solution
