need help choosing graphics card.

Hey, i am going to buy the Asus Rampage IV extreme black edition motherboard, But im confused, what would be a good graphics card to go with this motherboard?

Will the NVidia Geforce GTX 770 Superclocked be a good choice?

Also this is the rest of the hardware i will be buying, (First time im figuring it out for myself and installing. Want to build a good pc that will last for a few years)

CPU: I7 4930K -
RAM: Corsair 16GB DDR3 2133MHz CAS9
SSD: Samsung 840 Pro 256GB
HDD: Seagate Barracuda 7200.14, 2 TB
Case: Corsair Obsidian 750D
CPU cooler: Alpenföhn Himalaya 2 (it fits for 2011 sockets)
Sound: Asus Xonar Essence STX
Power supply: Corsair RM1000


Also will the 1000 watt power supply be enough? (I dont think i will be adding another video card into my pc)

    Try this. The 2011 socket is a bit overkill for your needs, and unless you have thousands of dollars of audio equipment, an audio card isn't needed.
