Good start - I would not recommend the GENE-Z or any mATX board on a full desktop system - go with a full ATX board like one of these:
- Asus P8Z68-V Pro / Gen 3:
- Gigabyte GA-Z68XP-UD3P:
Get this for your RAM:
PSU selection is OK - I'd go with this:
I'd also really look at putting a bit more into your GPU.
If you want Radeon go with this:
Otherwise I'd recommend this:
Knowing your budget would help to solidify it a bit more.
