Thats a good start :)  intel is smashing amd atm so there is no point swaping, you could go for a
asrock extreme 4
and get the tx750 and go with sli cards like times 2
and you dont need 12gb of ram, 8 is excellent and that should do unless u need a after market cpu cooler which i recommend

mostly 4-6GB RAM should be enough
so I said 8 GB should be enough ~
