  1. get the ASRock Z87 Extreme4: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157369
    it is a great board, you can OC with it (if you get a K CPU) and has three PCI-e3 slots for future more cards. it is probably more than what you need right now, if you like i can recommend a cheaper board.

    about the PSU, do you already have it? or planning on getting it?
  2. I'd suggest an H87 chipset motherboard since you don't appear to be looking at overclocking (non K cpu)

    then i highly suggest against it, its quality is medium at best. get a PSU from a well known PSU manufacturer. like Seasonic, Antec or Corsair HX series.

    this 550W is enough for you IF you are not planing on getting a second card later on, else-wise get a 750W PSU.

    regarding the Mobo, Z87 chpsets are made for overclocking & multi-gpu cards configurations. if these things doesn't interest you then go with a H87 Mobo. no need to pay for features that you will never use.

    UPDATE:
    520W: SeaSonic M12II 520 Bronze http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817151093
    750W: CORSAIR TX750 V2 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139021

    Overclocking is changing the default settings of your CPU to make it work faster. If you buy a 'k' type cpu, it is 'unlocked' meaning Intel allows you to have access to it's settings so you can manually increase them.

    The advantage is obvious, faster speed system. The disadvantage is it requires aftermarket cooling, and can cause your system to become unstable if you don't know what you are doing.
