That psu isn't good, i rather get a good one :

Also that sabertooth board is overpriced, you can get a cheaper asus with the same features :

For gaming you just need 8GB : (this ram is low voltage 1.35v)

Drop the sound card, you don't need one.
Here's a good case :

Also if you can get a 670 gtx :

Or a good 660 ti :
