I'd be getting an IB processor with a Z77 board, no reason not to at this point.

Extreme4, UD3H or something similar for the mobo.

Go with this for your motherboard and CPU instead:


Make sure your RAM is 1.5V, anything else will have stability issues.

And then swap your PSU with this:

Otherwise everything else looks good.

Is AsRock Extreme4 Z77 good motherboard? It has all the features but does it have quality to last like an ASUS or Gigabyte board?

It uses the same capacitors, so yes, it will last just as long.
