Hello first time builder and whatnot, been following toms for a year or two. I need help with which motherboard I should get or works with the parts I'm ordered/ing yesterday and today.

Parts I ordered:
WD Velocity Raptor 500 GB HDD (was 80 why not, unless there is a problem)
NZXT Phantom Full tower
G.Skill Sniper Series 8 GB (2x4GB) 1866
Corsair TX650 V2 650W just in case

Parts I plan to order:
Sapphire 7870 2GB
Lite-On Dvd Rom
Rosewill Internal Card reader

Here is the motherboard that is in my mind right now but not sure if it has all the slots needed for the stuff above.
Asus P8Z77 V-LK

So please just look over and give me any info that would help like, there would be a better motherboard out there thats cheaper or same price, there are things on this i dont need, etc

My budget is 150 for mobo.

Thank you for your time. Hope i get responses within today since its Black Friday. I'll be checking every half hour so tell me if i need to post more info.

Looks like the ASUS P8Z77-V LK LGA 1155 has a PCI, a PCIe x1, a PCIe(2.0) x16, and a PCIe(3.0) x16....nice! Even an S/PDIF header--killer!!
