Everything else looks good to me.
Yes this is another board that is better than the Sabertooth.

Asus Sabretooth z77
Intel i7 3770k
Corsair Vengeance 16GB DDR3 1600MHz CL10 Dual Channel Kit (2 x 8GB)
Intel SSD 330 Series SATA III Solid State Drive Kit, 120GB
Corsair Professional Series HX750 Modular Power Supply
Seagate 2TB Barracuda 7200rpm SATA III w/ 64MB Cache
Corsair Hydro H100 Extreme Performance Liquid CPU Cooler
NZXT Phantom Full Tower, White
eVGA GeForce GTX 670 FTW 2GB PCI-E w/ Dual DVI, HDMI, DisplayPort

I just need some input on it before i order it! What do you guys think?

few things i would change
one get a 2100mhz ram
forget the h100 and go full a full custom water loop
if you can wait a month for black friday for a graphics card you can get a 680 for the price of 670, plus it gives some time to save some more money and go for SLI

make you system future proof

What would be a better motherboard? Around the same price of course.

UD3 currently holds the record for highest overclock. The UD5 would be another good pick.

It does not anymore actually, but I think it is 3rd, and none of the other boards are even close to it's low price.

Corsair Hydro H100 Extreme Performance Liquid CPU Cooler
NZXT Phantom Full Tower, White
eVGA GeForce GTX 670 FTW 2GB PCI-E w/ Dual DVI, HDMI, DisplayPort

I just need some input on it before i order it! What do you guys think?

Its you're first build so Im guessing you dont know how to overclock. Dont waste your money on a H100 when you're not going to take full potential in it. Also I wouldn't get the sabertooth board just because I heard the heat armor isn't that great and the fans on it make a lot of noise. I would also get the OCZ vertex 4 or the samsung 830 ssd instead just because the intel 330 series are a bit old now and the vertex 4 or samsung 830 are a lot more faster for the same price. One last thing, 16gb of ram is overkill in my opinion unless you're going to be rendering 10 different videos at once or playing 5-6 games at once. Just save your money and get 8gb of ram, its more then enough. I have never used more then 3gb of ram at once on my pc and I do a lot of video editing and rendering.
