    That psu isn't good, i rather get a good one : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817371031

    Also that sabertooth board is overpriced, you can get a cheaper asus with the same features : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131837

    For gaming you just need 8GB : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820148662 (this ram is low voltage 1.35v)

    Drop the sound card, you don't need one.
    Here's a good case : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811139008&Tpk=corsair%20400R

    Also if you can get a 670 gtx : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814125423

    Or a good 660 ti : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814121656
