you may need to 16Gb for your digital media I'd got 2x8gb if ya think you'll use it all. with current overclocking limits (multi only) issues of the past with all dimms populated I dont see any hinderance with 4x4gb either. But I havent tried it so i cant comment fully.

If you raid them, too.

Conclusion :

raid 10: high write rates

raid 6: data safety

raid 5: much usable Space

The Sabertooth is only Dual channel RAM i think?

The AX series all come with enough cables to power 2 GPU's

Personally for a build like that id get a full tower for room.

EDIT: was typing this before you posted that lol

Looks awesome. Defo consider 16GB of RAM seeing as you've said you're going to be doing media stuff, but you may get away with 8GB, it just all depends on what exactly the rig is going to be used for. As for the case, defo buy it, the military green C70 will look absolutely insane with the Sabertooth board!

the z77 is a dual channel. but asus has been verified ocing all dims populated. the quad channel kit was a attempt to match all the ram but being dual channel i could probably just use dual 8gb kits

I'd change the SSD to a ForceGT, only cost a little more but they are faster and well worth the extra. Other than that you have a very nice build there.
