OK, though a few comments: You don't need that pricey a mobo. Get something like the GA-Z77X-D3H or the Z77 Extreme4.

Your PSU is overkill for one 7970 - get about 500W. Perfect for crossfire if you want to do that later though.

It might be worth waiting a few weeks for Haswell - even if you stick with IB, prices are likely to go down.
