What's your budget? Also, are you shooting for near silence?

Why are you getting the sabertooth? Please don't say because "it's a good motherboard".

 

Also, you probably don't need a 'workstation' if you're just programming.

Like i said my budget is 1500$, and i'd like the sabertooth for the slick looks, the durability and the long guaranty. The more silence possible, better...

This.

Also, I would get Intel over AMD as Intel CPU's are more efficient, core for core and GHz for gigahertz.

You'll notice the AMD CPU's tend to always have more cores and higher GHz rates, and yet they are only ever a good choice when it comes to budget builds.

That's just my opinion that's been formed since I started reading/watching/etc everything tech (that's reasonable).

They work, I just think their numbers are inflated.

8350 is cheaper runs hotter.

 

4770k is faster and runs cooler

Here are some changes to your build: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/19dcK

 

The 8350 is basically a higher binned 8320. Unless you're doing a custom loop, the 8320 will do the same.

I went with the NH-D14 since it's quieter and rivals the h100i.

Went with cheaper motherboard that's still black so it won't break the theme.

Went with sleek, lower profile ram to not interfere with the cooler. 

The ssd is silent. The WD Red 3TB model has a thicker casing than the other capacity models and is virtually silent especially in the Define R4.

780--great card. (obviously)

Define R4--great case for silence.

Seasonic X series--this will power the system and can turn it's fan off when not under load. It's very quiet even when it is under load.
