I'm afraid your motherboard doesn't support your CPU.

CPU is socket 1150, your motherboard is socket 1155, it means it won't fit inside.

...or, if you like the features of that motherboard, get an Ivy Bridge CPU, like the i3-3240. The performance difference is slight.
The PSU is also bigger than you need; a 450W version (XFX is a good brand for PSUs; all built by Seasonic) is enough for a GTX650, or use the savings to get a GTX650Ti (Boost Edition if possible).
Edit for clarity: the savings from getting the 450W PSU will pay for the better graphics card, which will also run on a 450W PSU.
GTX650 <= HD7750 < HD7770 < GTX650Ti < HD7790 < HD7850 <= GTX650Ti Boost Edition

It's a P8Z77 not P8277 and it's not compatible with your CPU. Everything else looks fine. Although, I do have a couple of suggestions for you. The RAM you chose is only 1x 8Gb stick. Try to get 2x 4Gb sticks and dual channel them. This will help performance. Also, a Radeon HD 7770 GPU is better than the 650 and also priced slightly cheaper. And a final small thing, try to get a Seagate or Western Digital hard drive instead of a travel star. They are a lot more reliable than those silly HGST hdd's.
