You will need a better motherboard as that one is missing the motherboard VRM heatsink in the top left.

This would work http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
However, if you want to get big into overclocking, the extreme 4 would be better, but that is a bit more expensive.

Also, I would switch that CPU to an i5 4690k, and put that money towards a better GPU as you will gain more in the gaming category.

I would get this GPU if you got the i5 (the 280x) http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=E...

Or this GPU (770) http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=E...

Why not RAM that's clocked higher? 1600 MHz or more?
Also, aren't you looking at the newer Devil's Canyon processors?
