Just finished my rig based finally on the Sabertooth Z77 and 3770K and it is working very well. I am planning to get 2 Asus GTX670 for this PC.
Looking forward to seeing your rig.

UPDATE:
I just ordered most of my build. Here is what I have ordered:
Corsair H100
Corsair AX850
Corsair Vengeance 8GB 1866Mhz RAM
ASUS Sabertooth Z77 (Available in 2-4 weeks)
Intel Core i7 3770K LGA 1155 (Available in 2-3 weeks)
EVGA nVidia GeForce GTX 670 FTW

Excited that I have the stuff ordered, but bummed the two most major parts won't be here for awhile... Oh well... At least I can admire the other parts while I am waiting..

Also if anybody is wondering why I bought the EVGA GTX 670 FTW, it is because it is slightly more powerful, and it has a longer PCB which means no stupid power cable spots...

Thanks, TheCMStormStryker

So far it's been running absolutely fine for me. I upgraded from an AMD Phenom 965 and from that I can see a big difference in basically everything I use it for - ie - games and internet. Been able to overclock to 4.5ghz while keeping volts very low, lucky chip I think. I couldnt be happier with my upgrade though, and i'm also using a 7950, so lower than the 670 you have and I'm able to play everything at max without frame rates really dropping below 60 much at all

Thanks James (Assuming that is your name)!!!
What kind of cooler are you using, and what ram?

Also anybody know anything about this PSU??? I'm not going to get it, but I thought you guys might like to see! http://www.newegg.com/Special/ShellS...8-_-06302012_2

And as for Newegg, I really don't want to have to pay for shipping on the Motherboard (Mainly beacuse I have an Amazon Prime Account), and they are cheaper on Amazon...

Any other comments are appreciated!!!

Thanks, TheCMStormStryker

Does anybody have anything else they would like to add?
I got the GTX 670 FTW, AX850, H100, and RAM in the mail today. I was one happy kid .
I would like to know if it is okay to use the H100's pre-applied thermal paste or should I get some other kind and put in on there???
I will try and post pictures if I can...
Thanks Guys!!!

The H100's Paste will do, but if you want some extra performance, clean it off with some TIM Clean and use some Noctua NT-H1 ( My Personal Favourite)

be careful if you order the cpu from amazon. i did and the listing turned out to be for a 3770 and not a 3770k as they had cocked the page up.
can you post a link to the amazon cpu?

I'm using an NH-D14 you your temps will probably be better than mine as I also have the fans turned down to 7v.
I'm using Mushkin Blackline 1600mhz 1.35v RAM but that was probably a mistake buying it
