2. Evga 550 ti for now. intend to upgrade too a 570ti or pci 3.0 when available
3. 16gb of ram at 1600mhz
4. 60gb SSD
5. 650tx corsair power supply
6. 750gb HDD

I have used Asus motherboards in the past but an not sure of which one i should get or completely set on Asus so any other suggestion would be appreciated.

I got an MSI P67A-G43, rock solid for months now. My i5 2500k is OC'd at 4.5 @ 1.24v 24/7. Its @ newegg for $130, or you can get one of the gen3 boards with the pcie 3.0.
