Although at the moment I think the PSU has been wanting a upgrade.

So the question is in the title a good set up.
I've been thinking of a sabertooth but I would prefer to have a i7 over 3.1 GHZ
I read a review of the Sabertooth recently that showed the plastic over the PCB actually raised the temperatures of pretty much every component.

I don't think you need to upgrade your PSU, unless it's dying, and you definitely don't need anything remotely close to 1000w .
