So how solid would this sound

i5 760

asus sabertooth x58

asus 470 fermi

750 w corsair (is that enough to power it all)

and what would any of you recommend for ddr3?
(especially because the ram isnt as close to the cpu as on the crosshair iv)

Sounds very solid! I hope you're getting 2x gtx 470, right? If yes then this will rock
750w is more than enough to power everything up
You also might want to consider buying an aftermarket cpu cooler such as a corsair h50 which will help your temps....
For the ram, here's the best bang for your buck (if you consider the timings and voltages + speed):

well yes i will, eventually. once i get the hang of things/ more money hahah
i have a corsair A70 already, i wasnt too comfortable with the idea of water cooling for my first computer.

okay okay and last question! haha your just helpful so i thought i'd squeeze every answer out i could get.

since the sabertooth has 6 slots for ram, say i get a set with x3 2gb, will i put them every other? or does it matter what slots?

first off op go here and edit ur system info so we can know what you have or are for sure getting. http://www.overclock.net/specs.php. I think ur i5 with sabertooth is a good build but if u can stretch the dollar get an i7 for sure. Its worth the extra cash. Also where do you live and do u know if u have a microcenter near by? if so you can get a i7 950 for 200 and then get a GB board and meet your 450 budget for cpu and board while getting a better setup.

STOP! If you're talking about the sabertooth with 6x ram slots than you will be buying the wrong one. The one with 6x slots is for 1366 cpus which are i7s. You have to get the 1156 for it to work with your i5 (its not the same socket), and the 1156 version only has 4x slots so the kit I linked will work perfectly with it, in fact it was designed for i5s...
Here's the link to the sabertooth I'm talking about, the right one:

Bummer ;( just noticed it was out of stock... You can only buy it as a combo with some other crappy components.... Get this motherboard then since I dont think it will be possible anymore to buy it as a single item... If yes then great, but if not, get this one:

Don't understand?
If this is what you mean, then yes:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-067-_-Product

2x Asus Gtx 470

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-303-_-Product

You could also get an i7 for roughly 120$ more (includes cpu, mobo, ram kit)...
What I would suggest this:
