Gaming PC - Is this motherboard enough?

This is my first build and I'm building it for playing games like Battlefield 3 + multiplayer, Battlefield 4 + multiplayer (when it comes out), Skyrim and more.

I believe the rig is good enough to play these games on ultra with a decent FPS but is the motherboard compatible with all the components I am adding in? please note I might buy another 660 Ti in a few years if I need the boost, I probably can't shell out anymore for a more expensive motherboard since this rig is already over what I'd like to spend.

GPU: 2GB MSI GTX 660 Ti Power Edition
CPU: Intel Core i5 3570k + Coolmaster hyper 212 Evo CPU cooler
PSU: 750W Corsair Enthusiast TX V2
RAM: 8GB (2 x 4GB) Corsair DDR3 Vengeance
SSD: 128GB OCZ Vertex 4
HDD: 1TB Seagate 7200 RPM
CASE: NZXT Phantom 410 Mid Tower
DVDRW: Sony AD-5280S-0B 24x
OS: Windows 7 Ultimate

140mm NZXT FZ-140mm LED 13 Blade Fan 1000RPM
2 x Arctic Cooling F12 120mm Case Fan
100cm NZXT blue sleeved LED kit
Arctic Silver 5 thermal compound

you do not need a 750 watt PSU; a quality 550 watt is enough for any single graphics card solution.
a 650 watt PSU is enough to run 2 GTX 660ti SLI set up.

those card only need 160 watt max and even overestimating 140 watts for your system thats 300 watts including the fans.
