If you're buying in the next couple of days, then it might be wise to see what Anandtech and Tom's say about the GTX 670. It may influence you to step up to a higher-tier card. Even if you don't, the appearance of a 670 may induce AMD to lower their prices.
For the motherboard, I'm a new ASRock convert. Had Asus, Gigabyte, and MSI over the years and liked them all - but ASRock is best bang for the buck. I'd recommend the Z77 Extreme4 - check the connectivity but it should have all the connectors needed for you stated purposes.
