I had the opportunity to test their Z77-GD65 Gaming board, and it is a sweet board. If the Z87 version of it is similar, you did not make a mistake at all.

If you intend to play games, you'll need a graphics card. If you want to overclock, you'll want an aftermarket cooler. For moderate overclocking, a 120mm tower-style cooler is sufficient. I use the Xigmatek Gaia myself, but its price recently got jacked. I'd still choose it over the Hyper212 family (which is louder, and not quite as good per reviews), but a cheaper, comparable equivalent now appears to be a model from NZXT.

I'd think that should be able to max games at 1920x1080 for a good while.
If you'll be gaming over a wireless connection, make sure the wireless adapter is a PCIe x1 card, not a cheap USB dongle. I have and like this one: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
