What is this PC for?

Sabertooth Motherboard is overkill.

Hey, thanks for the quick reply. It's going to be a "high end" FPS gaming computer. Mostly BF3, Crysis 2 and BO2. Could you recommend a motherboard from newegg.ca that would work well? Thanks!

If this is a "high end," fps gaming computer then listen to me, and supplement the following links into your build:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... MSI Motherboard that Sabertooth is a waste of money this board does the same exact thing

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... You don't need an i7, the i5 is the same processor without hyper-threading, something game engines don't use. You will have the same FPS with either processor except this one saves you 100 dollars.

Samsung 840 Pro, Plextor M5P, and finally Corsair GTX Neutron These are the only SSD worth buying. The samsung has the best performance, followed by the Corsair, followed by the Plextor.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... MSI 670, will stay cooler and will do it with 2 fans. Also better for overclocking.

And corsair released a newer version of that mouse, http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... upgraded the sensor/subtle changes to the grip.

Yes it meshes together really well, perfectly compatible. MSI motherboards also come with OC genie, a bios tool that makes OC very easy, and incredibly stable, which is a nice extra. Buy it, and enjoy, this system will dominate. You got to pick an SSD, all are good(I can't choose between those 3), and grab some arctic silver 5 thermal paste Don't forget to close the thread once you are confidant in your purchases,
