two things

1. think about geting two 120 GB SSDs running in raid 0, they would cost about the same while performing faster.

2.1200 Watt PSU is overkill when you aren't going to overclock.

Is the Z77 a quad channel board?

I would personally go for custom water cooling with that rig and a full tower case (preferably Corsair 800D like I have )

The PSU is overkill but it looks awesome I would just go for it

I liked the case, it goes really well with the sabertooth board, but isn`t the power supply too overkill? go with a 850 you can power up and overclock that system and have plenty of extra power

i chose psu for connector options and abilty to power 8 sata devices. in past i seen gpu cards that take dual 8pin and a 6pin on single gpu (just want to have option if i ever need it). i have a 800d but has few annoyances and to fix them cost more then a new case. i never done raid before, is it hard to setup for a boot drive???

Tom did a
" about 1,5 years ago. The basics are the same but your bios will look extremly different because of the change to Uefi.

Looks awesome. As said above 2x120GB SSD's in Raid 0 would be more beneficial than 1 240GB drive. Also, yeah 1200W is huge overkill but if you ever choose to add 1 or even 2 more 680's you'll still have plenty of power, and that unit should last ages seeing as it's a Corsair AX unit so i say go for it!
