Motherboard, CPU, GPU, RAM Compatibility

Hello, I am trying to build a new pc(only in theory, I haven't bought most of the parts yet),and I am wondering if it is good and compatible together?

Motherboard: http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=4143#ov

CPU:http://ark.intel.com/products/65520

GPU:http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=3799#ov (I already own this one)

And RAM:http://www.aqua.hu/8gb-1600mhz-ddr3-ram-kingston-hyperx-kit-2x4gb-xmp-blu-edition-khx1600c9d3b1k28gx-154235.html

And I would also like to ask,that since I want this PC for gaming for the next few years,will it be capable of running the newest games on at least high settings?(It is also enough for me if they will just run smoothly at 60 fps on any settings).
Thanks for the answer!

Oh and also, is a 500W power supply enough for this PC?

    Thanks for the answer,but I still have doubts, I don't want to completely rely on a website when building my pc, I have seen many different websites,where they were all writing different power consumption to the specific elements of this pc, and I'm wondering,what would be the highest possible power consumption of this computer? (Because I don't want my PSU to either not be enough for the computer, or die too quickly)
  3. best way to check your power req. : http://support.asus.com/powersupply.aspx
    and the PSU also depends weather u will OC,crossfire,sli or stuff like that... then youwill require a better PSU..intel CPU's generally consume less power as compared to AMD...
  4. 500w is plenty for this build. Make sure it is antec, XFX, Corsair, Seasonic.

    the motherboard will not let you overclock that CPU so get a z77 motherboard or get a non K series CPU
